The patron accused of writing the n-word on the tip section of receipt for teenage waitress Toni Christina Jenkins is denying he wrote the slur.

While serving at a Tennessee Red Lobster, Jenkins says Devin Barnes signed his receipt with the n-word and she posted a photo of it to her Facebook page.

The photo included the caption, “This is what I got as a tip last night… so happy to live in the proud southern states…God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee.”

In the picture the word “none” was written on the tip line and “Ni**er” on the total line. Barnes does admit to writing “none” on the tip line but claims he left the total line blank. “He’s just not that type of individual,” Richard Dugger, Barnes’ attorney said. “He doesn’t speak that way.”

The receipt posted to Jenkins FB page included Barnes’ name, signature and part of his card number online. “I’ve never had to deal with that before,” Jenkins said, standing by her initial report that the slur was there when she got the receipt.

In a handwritten statement, Barnes wrote: “I do not approve of the use of that type of talk, not now or ever!”

According to Dugger, Barnes continues to receive threats over Jenkins’ post, even though he maintains his innocence. “Whoever put that on that receipt was very wrong,” Dugger said.

    I am very sorry that this “young lady” (and I use the term loosely)
    took advantage of “You Caring” and all of the donors:

    As seen on News Channel 4 Nashville at 5pm on Friday Oct 4, 2013, Devin Barnes and his attorney were interviewed. A handwriting analysis was done and the truth is now out there. The handwriting of the racial slur was not Devin’s or his wife’s handwriting.

    After Mr. Barnes (and his Attorney, Richard Dugger) successfully sue Miss Jenkins for slander and defamation of character, I hope she has enough money left to pay all of the donors back!

    It is so depressing that people in her generation have RUINED what ABRAHAM LINCOLN, MARTIN LUTHER KING, AND JOHN F. KENNEDY had successfully started…she is looking for a handout, and is going backwards in time with HER RACIST FEELINGS TOWARD WHITE PEOPLE!

    ANYONE WHO HAD Miss Jenkins AS A WAITRESS (or if she rang up your “to go” order) SHOULD DOUBLE CHECK THEIR CREDIT CARD STATEMENTS…who know what other mysterious things ($$tips) MAY HAVE BEEN ADDED AFTER CUSTOMER LEFT THE BUILDING.

    and since when does a “to go” order warrant a “tip” for service.

    and for the im not a handwriting expert but i can still be an authority on it tool serpetine, i will make certain that the new article will contain some of the waitress’ handwriting so you can actually make an informed decision… for once

  3. Maybe he didn’t write it, but someone at the table did! So if they order handwriting samples should get it from everyone at the table that night.

  4. Other than the same ink they didn’t look similar to me. So I searched for a copy of his handwritten apology and it really appears to NOT be the same writer. Why do we always believe the accuser?

      • More like they racist people, not all white people are racist…I have encountered them from all groups and they are all cowards

      In case you’re wonderin’… the case is going to court now.

      The chick’s being sued for fraud. It’s pretty obvious by this point that she framed him.
      Keep an eye out for the outcome case you all don’t believe me.

    Of course he wrote it. Look at the letters “n” and “e” in both words. I’m not a handwriting expert, but they look the same to me.

    • The Ns look nothing alike. The Es look like a standard cursive E that we are all taught. We should wait until there is more info.
