In a statement Monday, Saltgrass Steakhouse's chief operating officer , Terry Tunney, said the company learned "that our employee fabricated the entire story" after investigating the incident further. "Racism of any form is intolerable. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equally disturbing," he said.
Khalil Cavil, 20, posted a picture of the receipt, from a dinner July 14 at the Odessa restaurant, on Facebook. No tip had been left on a bill for $ 108.73, and the waiter's name was circled next to a message that read "We do not tip terrorist."
"I share this because I want to understand that this is racism, and hatred still exists, "Cavil wrote in the Facebook post. He has since deactivated his account.
