New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees found himself at the center of controversy earlier this week when a blogger posted a picture of a receipt showing he left a measly $3 tip on a $77.41 bill. The post went viral, and fans were quick to shame the millionaire quarterback for being stingy.
But it turns out, the $3 tip was for a takeout order. Brees defended himself on Twitter saying the tip would have been 20 percent or more if he had sat down.
