Just a day after his team won their home opener in impressive fashion, Philadelphia Eagles All Pro running back LeSean McCoy and three friends reportedly visited a hamburger restaurant called PYT.

Apparently, the diners were not pleased with the service and/or the food. According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Rob Knelly, the man who waited on McCoy's table expected the bad tip. Knelly told the Daily News that the party was rude and loud, commenting on the food by saying, "What is this s**t?"

Less than two hours after McCoy left the puny tip, a copy of the receipt was posted on the PYT Facebook page.

That post went viral, triggering local and national news reports.

The small tip was probably not due to a lack of finances. The All Pro running back is in the middle of a 5-year, $45 million dollar contract.

Shortly after the first tweet, Bowen added one more on the subject:


The story raises interesting questions about tipping and a restaurant's response to bad tippers.
