What a fantastic outcome for receipt insult waitress

 An African American waitress Toni Christina Jenkins was working the day shift at seafood restaurant Red Lobster in the affluent suburb of Cool Spring, Tennessee, when the table of two she was serving left her an unwelcome message on the receipt.
 
"None," is written next to the "Tip" line, while "N*****" sits scrawled underneath it.
 
The waitress described the customers as a man and a woman in their 20s, who were "extremely rude" and that she "introduced herself to them and they didn't respond. When Jenkins came to take their order they simply told her they wanted their food and to put everything in a to-go box. She offered them dessert but they told her snappishly that they just wanted the check. As soon as she went back to the table they had gone, left a receipt and the customer had written comments on it.
 
Jenkins felt insulted and she posted the rude receipt on social media (Facebook) and wrote a comment on her post stated "This is what I got as a tip last night ... so happy to live in the proud southern states. God Bless America, land of the free and home of the low class racists of Tennessee,' It has since been deleted.
 
In an extra slap to the face, the restaurant suspended Jenkins with pay after her story spread, citing company policy that prohibits staff posting receipts online.
 
But in a positive turn of events, a California man, Matthew Hanson, has raised a sum of $10,000 in an online fundraiser called "Tips for Toni" in honour of her lost tip
