Accused of stiffing bar, Kendall Jenner fires back on Twitter

Between her tone deaf Pepsi commercial and appropriative t-shirt line, it’s been a bad couple of months in the press for Kendall Jenner, but her latest “hiccup” looks like it’s probably a misunderstanding.

Over the weekend, a Brooklyn bar and music venue Instagrammed a photo of the Keeping up with the Kardashians star’s $24 signed receipt. Their gripe? The tip field was left completely blank.

“Don’t forget to tip your bartender :)” they cheekily captioned it, leaving “JENNER/KENDALL N”* clearly visible beneath the signature line.

The photo went viral for obvious reasons, but the bar deleted it hours afterward and gave no explanation as to why. Then, Monday evening, Jenner cleared things up with a single tweet.

First, she embedded a message from a fan: “I love @KendallJenner I’m sure there’s more to this story. Everyone’s so quick to judge cause she’s part of the Kardashians.” Then Jenner added her own thoughts.

“Damn, I guess next time I won’t tip in cash,” she tweeted.

And just like that, the story makes sense. Is there proof that she tipped in cash? Not that we’re aware of—but at least the explanation sounds feasible.

*Fun fact: the N. stands for Nicole after Nicole Brown Simpson, Kris Jenner’s dear friend.
