Texas waiter admits ‘we don’t tip terrorist’ receipt was a hoaxWatch
On Sunday night, the restaurant said in a statement that the incident was faked and that Cavil no longer worked there. The statement neither explained how the restaurant learned this or whether Mr. Cavil was fired or resigned.
The following day, Cavil admitted in an interview that the incident at Saltgrass Steak House was all a hoax — “I did lie to you,” he told the paper.
“I did write it,” Mr. Cavil told the Odessa paper, refusing to explain why. “I don’t have an explanation. I made a mistake. There is no excuse for what I did.”
The fake story won national attention and Mr. Cavil said he hoped to spur conversation “about this hatred that is still going on, that is still here and prevalent.”
Mr. Turney said the formerly banned customer had been contacted and told he could come back “to dine on us.”
He also said Monday that he had nearly finished returning all the money donated to him under false pretenses.
It is bad enough to make up a hate crime against yourself, but to blame it on an innocent customer? He is lucky that the customer was never named.
He has harmed an innocent person's reputation and caused them stress. He has also armed far right people with ammunition, they have a reason now to treat Muslims like the boy who cried wolf.
POC know their privilege
If the tipper is White, they're ****ed.
There needs to be more caution when running stories like these. There's often a distinct lack of verification, and the 'victim' can easily be making things up, but news outlets will still run the story as though it's fact.
This certainly appears to be kudos to be gained on the left from painting yourself a victim.
being wealthier equates to what exactly?
muslims value character - good manners, morals, etc. not money. most religions reject materialism.
and im pretty sure muslim Americans are the least likely religious group to commit crimes, and their women are the highest educated amongst any other religious group.
