The waitress — Toni Christina Jenkins — posted Devin Barnes’ receipt on Facebook which showed that he didn’t leave a tip and he allegedly used a racial slur. Barnes admits to being cheap but he denies ever writing the slur on the receipt and he is now suing Red Lobster and Jenkins for $1 million.

Red Lobster suspended Jenkins for her actions as she violated the company’s policy of posting guest information online. She was eventually allowed to return to work along with a top of over $10,000 from the Internet.

A fundraiser in support of Jenkins was created online and the waitress received $10,759 from Internet users all around the country.

DRI stock is up Friday afternoon.
