A bartender at a Mexican restaurant has spoken out after allegedly receiving an offensive message on a receipt in lieu of a receipt.
Hehsus Baeza, of Texas, claims a customer left a rude message and no gratuity after dining at Tkilaz Mexican Restaurant Bar and Grill on Sunday (February 17).
After finishing a $17.55 meal – which included ‘a plate of asado’ and a drink of ‘Dos XX’, the patron reportedly wrote the following message:
My tip is to build the f*cking wall now!
Baeza took to Facebook to share a picture of the receipt in question, calling out the customer’s apparent hypocrisy:
F*ck you! How are you going to come eat a plate of asado and drink a Dos XX and write this! #hypocrite.
Baeza’s Facebook post quickly went viral, with many people expressing shock and outrage at the spiteful message.
One person commented:
Very hypocritical. It’s one thing to have an opinion, but to write it down as a ‘tip’ …then …to write it down on the merchants copy at a Mexican restaurant, is disgusting for sure. #Hypocrite #CheapAss
While another person noted:
They want the wall but sure love Mexican food
Well they have his name, ban that MFer from the restaurant.

However, others have been left unsure, claiming the receipt in question is a ‘hoax’.
One person commented:
If this turns out to be fake you will get sued for blasting this persons name. This happened in Odessa sometime last year and the server was punished.
I guess you people never learn, last time this happened it WAS FAKE! Ya just a bunch of sheep that jump off the cliff without any evidence.
Seems a bit suspicious to me, I rarely believe these stories.
