Idiot of The Week
And, it’s not Donald Trump
In complete honesty our idiot of the week could easily be Donald Trump, every week so, I thought to shake things up and that I’d highlight someone new.
A waiter by the name Khalil Cavil from Odessa, Texas took to Social media to share a story about a racist encounter he had with a customer:
“I share this because I want people to understand that this racism, and this hatred still exists”
“Although, this is nothing new, it is still something that will test your faith.”
This particular incident unfolded earlier this month when Khalil Cavil, 20, a now former waiter at a Saltgrass outpost in Odessa, Tex., posted an image to Facebook that showed a $108 bill with zero on the tip line, and “We don’t tip terrorist,” written in ink at the top.
The Texas restaurant company Saltgrass, in Odessa, Texas, as it turned out decided to take swift and corrective action by banning a customer after Khalil’s story of the receipt scrawled with a racial epithet went as stories like this often do, viral.
Khalil by the way is part Caucasian and part African American.
Monday, the restaurant said that it had parted ways with poor Khalil upon learning that the story was completely false.
Yes, totally falsified.
Terry Turney, the chief operating officer of Saltgrass steakhouses, said in a statement: “Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equaling disturbing.”
Disturbing is one way of putting it, it’s actually completely disgusting.
Supporters on Facebook actually sent this guy money, he exploited a way to con people by playing on one’s emotional response to racism and all the poor customer received was an apology and an invitation to return to the restaurant to dine whenever they’d like.
Khalil has earned this week’s idiot award for being a truly disgusting display of being a human being.
