Charlie Sheen gives big tip to waiter stiffed by NFL star
Charlie Sheen has proven time and time again that, despite his quirks, he is really a good person. This time, Sheen's generosity came in the form of a $1,000 tip — to a server who didn't even wait on him.
It all started with one Facebook post from restaurant, PYT, in Philadelphia. Philadelphia Eagles player, LeSean McCoy, and some friends went to eat at the restaurant. They ended up spending $61.56, but McCoy reportedly only left a 20-cent tip, according to owner, Tommy Up.
For the record, McCoy told the Philadelphia Daily News, "It's bulls***."
The restaurant posted the receipt on its Facebook page and social media went crazy with the news. The post itself has already received more than 4,000 comments, but they were mixed. Some didn't think it was appropriate that the restaurant posted the photo, while others were upset that McCoy left such a small tip.
Charlie Sheen is one of those who didn't appreciate McCoy's lack of goodwill, according to E! News. He posted on Twitter a generous tip for the waiter who had served McCoy.
Up reposted his restaurant's post with a thank you to Sheen.
"Charlie Sheen is an American hero and a gentleman."
This isn't the first time that Sheen has gone out of his way to help those less fortunate. Back in November, he granted a dying fan's wish to meet him by paying for him and his family to fly to Los Angeles. And for his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, he poured money on his head and said he would be donating it all to charity.
