NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp embroiled in bitter row with waitress after his tip-less receipt is posted online

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp has come under fire for stiffing a waitress at a Florida sports bar Tuesday - but the former player insists he didn't tip the server only because the service was terrible.

The kerfuffle over Sapp's tipping habits erupted after a photo of his receipt from Upper Deck Ale and Sports Grille in Hallandale with a '0' scrawled where the tip was supposed to go went viral on social media.

To add insult to injury, the famed defensive tackle scrawled across the printout: 'Boys don't tip.'

On his Twitter page Wednesday, Mr Sapp defended his actions, writing that he decided to withhold gratuity on his bill totaling just under $70 because his server repeatedly called him and his companion 'boys.'

'No waitress will ever call me a boy twice after the 1st time & I say to her "when u look at me do u see a boy?" #HenceBoysDontTip' he tweeted to his 1.09million followers.

Sapp, 41, an analyst for NFL Network, headed to Upper Deck bar in Hallandale Tuesday afternoon to watch the epic World Cup match between Team USA and Belgium.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Hall of Famer and a friend ordered a pizza, a Reuben sandwich, a platter of wings, a bowl of crab soup and a bucket of beer, which came out to be $69.39
