ST. LOUIS – A pastor said she used bad judgment when she left a snide comment on a receipt but she did leave a tip. 

Our St. Louis sister station, KTVI, reported the pastor found herself at the center of a viral mess when her tab was posted on

The pastor said it happened at an area Applebee’s restaurant. 

“What they didn’t show is the money that I left and that we all left on the table,” Pastor Bell said. 

The pastor said she left $6.29 on the table and her credit card was also charged the tip amount.

She said everyone else at the table also left tips in cash.

KTVI reported, when the receipt was posted to Reddit by user gateflan, reportedly by a server, people started sending her messages. 

“I’ve actually been harassed because of this and it doesn’t tell the whole story,” Pastor Bell said. 

According to KTVI, she admitted it was a lapse in judgement but she said she and her ministry do good work around the community and would never want to tarnish the light of Christianity.

The server who posted the receipt to Reddit was reportedly fired.
