Los Angeles waiter Eme Ikwuakor was the envy of restaurant workers everywhere on Easter Sunday when rapper The Game announced to his followers on Instagram that he had left a $6000 tip for the Capital Grille employee. Along with posting a picture of a smiling Ikwuakor holding a roll of bills, Game revealed his “generosity” in a caption that reads:
“Left my waiter @ikwuakor a $6,000 tip !!!!!!!!!!!!! My HEART made me do it… & before yo hatin a*s get to doing what you do best, YES I help the homeless, YES I help families in NEED, YES my nig*as ALL straight & so is MY FAMILY….. My kids… Well, you already know that swaggin dumb out here…. & anyone I can help I do…. But today…. @ikwuakor took care of us…… So I took care of him…. & remember… He has a family too !!!!! Each one Teach one….. Walk a day in my Barkley 1′s (picture coming next) & your heart would be in great shape…. Love is love.”
While Game’s speech is very admirable, when asked by one of his own Instagram followers if the hip-hop star really did tip him $6000, Ikwuakor replied, “The Game is a chill guy but didn’t leave 6000. I will leave it at that.”
The Game admitted that he was drunk when he gave out the huge tip — so maybe that’s why his math is off.
