Waitress Fired For Facebook Post Complaining About Bad Tippers

Erik Sherman

A waitress at a Famous Dave's BBQ restaurant in Bismarck, ND set off an online firestorm and lost her job after she allegedly posted a picture that implied Native Americans are bad tippers. No doubt her timing was off; she posted it during the United Tribes International Powwow held in the city, according to a report by the Bismarck Tribune.

It also didn't help that the founder of the chain -- which has outlets all over the country -- is Native American.

In the photo posted to Facebook, the waitress is wearing a Famous Dave's shirt and standing in a restaurant kitchen; she is holding a cardboard sign that reads:

Spare Change? Help I'm a server at Famous Dave's on Pow Wow weekend! Anything helps! 5¢ 10¢! Its more than my tips <sic>
