It seems like a Philadelphia burger joint tried to get some viral publicity by casting Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in a bad light. The Philadelphia Daily News ran with it, as did Philadelphia Magazine, but Facebook sleuths have tried to debunk the story.
PYT in Philadelphia posted a picture of a receipt bearing McCoy's name on its Facebook page Monday afternoon. It showed that McCoy paid with a Visa card and tipped 20 cents on a roughly $60 bill. That's .03 percent.
But the commenters on the original Facebook post are a bit skeptical. Some think the waiter provided bad service. Others claim to have waited on McCoy and been tipped quite generously. "He's left me $200 on a $100 check at the bar I worked at," a guy named Seth Stewart posted. "Something is off here."
Another Facebook user posted a picture of the same receipt with a different name.
