Customers Refuse to Tip Server Because of Her Rainbow LGBTQ Tattoo


Homophobic customers refused to tip a server last weekend, and Twitter has been rallying behind her ever since.

The server, Samantha Heaton, has a rainbow equal sign tattooed on her forearm as a show of support for LGBTQ equality. She was serving a table at the Buffalo Wild Wings where she works last weekend when the customers decided to use her tattoo as an excuse to not give her a tip.
“Can’t tip someone who doesn’t love Jesus,” they wrote on the receipt. “Bad tatoo [sic].”
Heaton’s coworker, Joelle Maish, posted a photo of the receipt as well as the offending tattoo to Facebook that night, saying: “I would just like to say that being gay does NOT MEAN you don’t believe in God or Jesus,” she wrote.
“And people who are ‘religious’ should not disrespect or act in such ways to other people. p.s., they spelled tattoo wrong.”
The image was also shared to Twitter, posted by @EmilySotakoun, who wrote, “Just a reminder, customers/people like this REALLY exist,” she wrote on Twitter. “LOVE IS LOVE.”
