Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson Leaves Waitress $1,000 Tip

Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson has helped out one restaurant in the best way he knows how. After making a $37.40 purchase with Havana’s Cuban Cuisine restaurant, the 42-year-old father of four tipped his waitress $1,000. Underneath his signature, Chad Johnson wrote:

Congratulations on re-opening, sorry about the pandemic…hope this helps. I Love You.  

Chad Johnson also shared his heartfelt gesture on Twitter.

He tweeted the receipt and added the caption:

Proverbs 11:25

Havana’s Cuban Cuisine responded to Johnson’s generosity in a post on Facebook. The restaurant wrote:

We would like to thank Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson for his continued patronage. We greatly appreciate your generosity to our employees now during these most difficult times. Many blessings to you and your family. Thank you again!

His good deed comes just a couple of months after he paid a woman’s rent. She reached out to him on Twitter and said she was at risk of being evicted. He told her,

“Show me today’s deadline notice & we’ll handle it!!”

He promised to not only pay her rent for that month but added in “a few months in advance.”
