When this story broke, I told you on the show it was likely fake.

I told you so.

 
A black waitress who received thousands of dollars in donations after she claimed she received a racist note and no tip from a patron last month, fabricated the incident, the customer claims.

Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anita’s New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote “Great service, don’t tip black people” at the bottom of his receipt.

But the receipt was fabricated, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the patron.

Hebda said in a statement Friday that his client did leave Carter a small tip — one penny — because her service was poor, not because she is black.

The receipt she showed everyone with the fake hate message on it was printed several hours after the restaurant closed.
