Eagles' LeSean McCoy confirms 20 cent tip, says it was deserved

Friday September 12th, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy has confirmed that he left a 20 cent tip for a waiter at a Philadelphia restaurant, and says the waiter deserved it for providing poor service.

The two-time All-Pro told reporters that he generally tips well but he felt that he was disrespected at the burger spot where he ate with friends on Monday, according to ESPN.

"A 20-cent tip is kind of a statement," McCoy said. "You can't disrespect somebody and expect them to tip you. I don't care who the person is. That's why I left my card, so they could see my name."

The owner of the restaurant has said it was McCoy and his party who were rude, but others have taken to Facebook to defend the running back, saying he has left them very generous tips.

McCoy was willing to concede that the food was good at the restaurant, and Charlie Sheen has offered to give the waiter in question $1,000 so it looks like PYT Burger is coming out as the winner in this fiasco.
