When it was discovered that the Philadelphia Eagles player left such a small tip, there were reactions from the restaurant and even actor Charlie Sheen. McCoy initially didn’t have much to say about the incident until now. Hit the jump for details.


I tip on my service,” McCoy said Thursday. “There’s a difference between good service and bad service and just having a bad day. There’s a big difference between just being rude and disrespectful. That’s how that went.”

McCoy and some friends had lunch Monday afternoon at PYT, a burger place in the Northern Liberties section of the city. The check came to $61.56. McCoy, who has a base salary of $7.6 million in 2014, added a 20-cent gratuity and signed the tab with a flourish.

“A 20-cent tip is kind of a statement,” McCoy said. “You can’t disrespect somebody and expect them to tip you. I don’t care who the person is. That’s why I left my card, so they could see my name.”

In regards to Charlie Sheen’s involvement in the situation:

“It’s good to finally see him do something positive”.
