The restaurant receipt that a California banker supposedly used to denigrate a waitress--while also leaving her a one percent tip--was "altered and exaggerated," so says a spokesperson for the Newport Beach restaurant where the businessman supposedly dined earlier this month.

A photo of the receipt has gone viral in the past few days. The claim about the tip--and a photo of the receipt--first appeared last week on a blog that is now offline (along with a related Twitter account).
