‘We don’t tip white ppl, LOL’: Young Memphis waiter receives racist note in lieu of tip

A young waiter at a Mexican cantina in Memphis, Tennessee, recently received a racist remark on a check in lieu of a tip.


Nathan Bergeron, a white waiter at “On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina” in Memphis, told WATN-TV last week that while waiting his last table of the night recently he received a $0 tip on a meal that was nearly $50. The patrons included a husband, wife and a teenager.


Receiving no tip on a large meal is not surprising, Bergeron told WATN. But what he did find surprising is the reason the customers left no tip. At the top of the check, the customers wrote, “We don’t tip white ppl, LOL.”


Bergeron told WATN the note shocked him.


“I was more shocked,” he said. “The fact that they would be so blatant and put it out there.”


“I treated that table no differently from anyone else,” he explained.


After he left the restaurant that night, Bergeron told WATN that he took a picture of the receipt and sent it to a few of his friends to find some humor in the situation. One friend in particular, Brandy Sciara, took issue with the note so she posted it to Facebook to “raise awareness” about Bergeron’s situation, according to WATN.


“He’s a good person. He goes to work, does his job,” Sciara told WATN. “When I saw the comment I cried. I was always told, ‘If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all.'”


In response, Sciara created a GoFundMe page for Bergeron. In just three days, the crowdfund has well exceeded its goal of $500 and has raised nearly $7,000 for Bergeron.


“Community support has been wonderful,” Sciara told WATN. “Everyone is standing behind Nathan.”


It’s not clear who left the tip, but Bergeron said he isn’t going to let the incident dampen his spirits.


“I’m not going to let this bring me down,” he said. “I love what I do. I get to meet new people every day and interact with people from all different backgrounds.”
