Chad Johnson left a $1,000 tip for a Florida waitress to show he’s got a big heart.
Chad Johnson leaves a four-figure tip for a waitress in need.
Formerly known as “Ochocinco,” the former Cincinnati Bengals flashy receiver helped a waitress in need. Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, dine-in restaurant Havana’s Cuban Cuisine in Cooper City, Florida had been closed. Shortly after it reopened, Johnson was a costumer. While paying his $37.40 tab, he tacked on an extra $1,000 tip for his waitress Catalina.
“Congrats on the re-opening, sorry about the pandemic, hope this helps. I love you,” Johnson hand-wrote under his signature on the receipt.
Johnson tweeted a photo of his receipt on Monday, May 18.
“Proverbs 11:25,” Johnson captioned the tweet.
A verse that reads as follows: “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”
Havana’s Cuban Cuisine thanked Johnson via Facebook.
“We would like to thank Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson for his continued patronage. We greatly appreciate your generosity to our employees now during these most difficult times. Many blessings to you and your family. Thank you again!” Havana’s Cuban Cuisine posted on Facebook, along with a photo of the receipt.
Johnson was known on the gridiron for his quickness and flamboyant touchdown dances. Dances where he knew he would get fined by the NFL but done so to provide entertainment for fans.
Johnson once legally changed his last name so his nickname “Ochocinco” could officially be labeled on the back of his NFL jersey. No longer on the football field, his generosity to make others feel better is still a part of him. Leaving a $1,000 tip for a waitress in need is just another example.
