ROCKFORD, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A waitress from Illinois is taking a stand after she says a family did not leave her a tip because of her tattoo.

Samantha Heaton was working at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Rockford when she served a family that left her an unusual note on a $60 tab.

According to Heaton the note read, “Can’t tip someone who doesn’t love Jesus. Bad tattoo!”

Heaton says she noticed the family of five staring at her LGBT rainbow tattoo while she served them.

“I knew they were staring at my tattoo when I first introduced myself and throughout the meal, I could see them looking at my tattoo,” said Heaton.

Heaton made a post on Facebook that has been shared across the country.

People have contacted her to offer tips and she plans to donate any money sent her way.
