Several news outlets including The Daily Mail, NME and The Sun published stories on how the Canadian rapper reportedly gave two female McDonald’s workers a $20,000 tip in cash.
The stories were based on tweets shared by a user known as AJ, a University of Southern California alumni and ‘actor’ according to his Twitter bio.
Just saw Drake in McDonald’s… crazy.
And he gave two female employees $10,000 each… in cash.
Although the tweet didn’t go viral receiving, at time of writing (January 31), only 309 likes, news outlets caught on sharing the story.
However, it turns out AJ was grossly exaggerating on Twitter as a McDonald’s representative has confirmed in a statement to E! News the tip was actually only $200.And he gave two female employees $10,000 each... in cash.— AJ 🌹 (@imajnoel) January 26, 2019
So each female employee received $100 each in cash, rather than $10,000.
The statement read:
Despite early reports, McDonald’s learned that the amount Drake tipped each employee was $100 not $10,000.
