After a day’s worth of controversy involving an Olive Garden restaurant and local comedian Ricky Smith, there’s a new wrinkle unfolding.
On Wednesday night, Smith tweeted an update that the restaurant chain offered to make a sizable donation to his non-profit organization known as RAKE: Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere.
Olive Garden confirmed with WKYC they are donating $5,000 to RAKE.
This all comes after Smith claims that he was asked to leave the chain’s Parma location after his party requested a new server Tuesday.
An Olive Garden employee called 911 around 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to recordings released from the Parma Police Department Wednesday afternoon.
A report states that one of the officers spoke with the Olive Garden manager who stated that the dispute began after a customer declared that the waitress who was serving the party made a comment about not liking to serve black people because they don’t tip.
