Is Andre 3000 A Cheapskate?

Yes Andre 3000 has many faces, but apparently the generous and appreciative restaurant patron isn’t one of them.

One of Peta’s Sexiest visited a restaurant in Atlanta that wasn’t exactly vegan friendly. After the waiter, who identified himself as Matt Moore, was finally able to find a dish that suited the veggie king, he claims Andre showed his gratitude (or shall we say lack of) by leaving no tip.

A photgraph of the receipt looks like Andre was guilty of cheapness.

Moore responded by saying:

“The chef had tried to please them with original dishes and took time out of the busy dinner to customize a meal for them.”

“Despite the spot-on service and super-catered food, they felt the need to leave me no money. I had nothing to do with the food, yet he stiffed me.”

Moore auctioned off the receipt on eBay for $14.50.

Most of us vegetarians have had problems here and there when dining in a restaurant that was made for carnivores, but absolutely no tip?! If the staff made an honest effort, it seems only fitting to at least give them credit, right? Unless they bring out beef wellington 4 times…What do you think? Is this half of Outkast a cheapskate?
