Alright, vultures, here's the bloody carcass of a fresh social-media meltdown for you to pick over. A barbecue restaurant in Atlanta called Boners lived up to its name this week with a staggeringly inappropriate Facebook post (since deleted) directed at a customer who allegedly stiffed a waitress on a tab. "NOT WANTED! (Stephanie S.) left waitress 0.00 tip on a $40 tab after she received a Scoutmob discount," the post read. "If you see this women [sic] in your restaurant tell her to go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself. Yelp that bitch." Wow, strong words, Boners! As it turns out, there's more to the story. Apparently, Stephanie S. wrote a none-too-positive review of Boners on Yelp, which began: "The food was tepid. The flavors odd to bland and the atmosphere a bit lackluster. The fact that they were playing talk radio when we came in and the fact that the decor is secondhand picnic-y could be excused if the food was really good. The short: It wasn't." Meanwhile, Stephanie tells the Huffington Post that she did leave a tip. Andrew Capron, the owner of Boners BBQ, has since posted a personal apology to Stephanie on Facebook, but the whole page is now a raging mess of flying insults toward Stephanie. The most recent post reads: "To our friends on Facebook: we appreciate your support, however let's stop the name calling . . . have you not learned your lesson from this firestorm?"
