Eagles Running Back LeSean McCoy leaves 20 cents tip at a Restaurant & Charlie Sheen Steps In

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is not backing down after the owner of a Philly burger restaurant wrote a scathing Facebook post calling him a bad customer.

McCoy left a 20-cent tip on a $61 meal at PYT on Monday afternoon. After he left, the restaurant's owner Tommy Up posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook. A day later, he wrote a long post where he accused McCoy and his group of being "verbally abusive" toward the staff and only tipping 0.03% despite "impeccable service."

The server, Rob Knelly, admitted in an interview with NJ.com that he messed up their appetizer order, but he said McCoy was rude:

"As soon as they sat down, they were pretty rude. I asked some questions, they weren't really responsive. They were cursing, making derogatory comments. I put their order in and forgot one of their appetizers, which I apologized for. They ordered things, and once they got it, said 'We ain't eating this (bleep)! We don't want it.'"

McCoy is not apologizing. He said in his media availability on Thursday he said that he tips for service and he wouldn't change a thing about how he tipped at PYT that afternoon. He also claimed the server was the rude one.

Quotes from his interview:

McCoy added that the tip was "more just a statement" against bad service, which is certainly justifiable. Too bad Charlie Sheen didn't know that when pledged $1,000 to the waiter on the receiving end of McCoy's two-dime contribution.

From Zach Berman of Philly.com:

PYT is milking this for all its worth.

Charlie Sheen vowed to give $1,000 to the server.

With a classic he-said, she-said situation on our hands, the controversy continues.

ONTD waiters/waitresses, what's the worst tip you've ever received? And will you be getting a check from Charlie Sheen?
