A recent video capturing the moment a waitress confronts a group of teenagers who wrote racist remarks under the tip section of their receipt instead of leaving a gratuity has gone viral on TikTok. Here’s what happened.
She Was Doing Her Job
Amira Donahue, a 19-year-old college student and waitress at the restaurant, had been serving the teenagers, believed to be between 15 and 17 years old, during their visit to the restaurant.
The Shocking Remarks
When she cleared their table, she noticed that instead of leaving a tip, they had written “black” on the receipt.
She Felt a Mix of Emotions
She described feeling a mix of disbelief, anger, and disrespect upon seeing the note.
She Saw the Teenagers Outside
Determined to address the issue, Donahue spotted the teenagers outside the restaurant and decided to record herself confronting them.
She Confronted Them
In the video, which has garnered over 6 million views, Donahue calmly asked the group to clarify what they meant by writing “black” on the receipt.
The Teenagers Were Guilty
The teenagers stumbled over their words, claiming they didn’t know what she meant.
She Questioned Them
Donahue persistently questioned their motive and highlighted the impact of their actions.
Throughout the interaction, Donahue remained composed and sought to understand their intentions.
She Asked Why
She made it clear that her goal is not to receive a tip but rather to shed light on their behavior.
Donahue said, “It’s fine, I just wanted to know why you wrote that on your check. I don’t care if you tip me or not.”
The Teenagers Stuttered
As a result, one of the teenagers replied, “I wanted to tip you, I didn’t know what that meant.”
Donahue replied, “So you wrote black? Is that your favorite color?”
The Teenagers Shifted The Blame
The uncomfortable teen then pointed at another friend and said “he told me to write it” before insisting again he wanted to pay her the tip.
Facing the Consequences
The video exposed the teenagers’ discomfort and the apparent guilt they felt when faced with the consequences of their actions.
She Made a Follow-up Video and Explained Her Surprise
In a follow-up video, Donahue expressed her surprise at the incident, stating that she had never experienced anything so outrageous before.
This Situation Was Next Level Disrespect
While she had encountered low tips in the past, this incident took disrespect to a new level.
She also mentioned that she had not seen the teenagers in the area since the incident.
It Was Horrible
Social media users reacted strongly to the video, condemning the teenagers for their insensitivity.
The Teens Must Have Learned a Lesson
Many viewers noted the unmistakable sense of guilt in their voices, emphasizing the need for awareness and understanding.
One Tiktok user wrote, “I know their hearts were beating fast. That’s what they get.”
Another user added, “This is very uncomfortable to watch. I’m glad you confronted them. I hope they were just as uncomfortable as I am.”
