“The 20 cent tip was kind of a statement,” McCoy told reporters on Thursday. “I didn’t do anything wrong and if I had to do it again, I’d do it the same way.”

“Just to be honest, like I’m always—I tip on my service. I think there’s a difference between good service and bad service or just having a bad day. There’s a big difference with just being rude and disrespectful. That’s how that went,” McCoy said. “In any restaurant I go around in Philadelphia, I tip very well. I’m very respectful. You can’t be disrespectful and just expect somebody to tip you. I don’t’ care who the person is. That’s why I left my card, so they could see my name. Simple as that.”

“If you check on that restaurant, the backlash that has from everybody talking bad about that place, but good food, good food,” McCoy said.

The post that accompanied the receipt picture and the alleged tip read:

“The twenty cent tip that the Eagles’ LeSean McCoy just left our server on his $60 check is going to come in really handy for that new official NFL McCoy jersey he had his heart set on. That is a .03% tip. New record!”

Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News tweeted out the following regarding the incident and McCoy’s reaction to it.

The Northern Liberties burger joint is widely known for its interesting food delights. However, patrons are not unanimously defending the establishment. Comments have been mixed on the business’ Facebook page as some of those commenting feel like the business acted unprofessionally in posting a customer’s receipt on Facebook.

CBSPhilly.com has reached out to PYT management regarding the situation and has not yet received comment.
