Warren Sapp became an instant headline maker earlier today (July 2) when decided to leave a sports bar waitress nil on the tip because he claimed he experienced terrible service.
After the receipt became social media fodder, the owners of the restaurant are saying the waitress is a bit of hot water.
The waitress who got stiffed out of a tip by Warren Sapp — and then posted his credit card receipt online — will be punished by the Florida restaurant where she works … management tells TMZ Sports.
We spoke with the restaurant manager at the Upper Deck Ale and Sports Grill in Florida who tells us, “Regardless, famous or not [the bill] should never have been posted. It should not have happened.”
The manager says they are “going to have to deal” with the waitress who posted the bill — and told us she will be reprimanded for her actions.
When asked if the restaurant would be terminating the employee, the manager would not say.
The manager says the restaurant has been getting flooded with phone calls from people voicing their opinion — “it has been mostly negative.”
“People don’t want this to happen to them.”
TMZ also spoke with the waitress who says it was her sister who posted the bill after she received it privately. She also said his service was terrible and even claimed she refilled the bucket of beer with ice just to keep it from melting in the heat.
While the waitress–who goes by the name Corey–will have to deal with her boss, Sapp needs more people with his side of the story.
Check out the massive loads of slander he got for the entire situation. A cool, crisp Alexander Hamilton could have prevented all of this, buddy.
