A Latina waitress in Harrisonburg, Virginia, is getting widespread support after receiving a note that said, "We only tip citizens" from customers who stiffed her.

"They wouldn't talk to me. They would just nod their heads," 18-year-old Sadie Elledge told CNN of the customers who visited Jess' Lunch last week.

Elledge, who was born in the United States of Honduran and Mexican descent, said she wasn't surprised that the couple didn’t tip her. But she called the note rude.

"It shouldn't even matter, I just feel like it's rude and disrespectful. I've never met, I've never done anything to them," Elledge told WHSV-TV.

Elledge's boss, Angeliki Floros, told the station that she would like an apology from the couple, whom she called cowardly.

"I would like for them to not come here unless they regret what they did," Floros said.

The couple was caught on surveillance video, but WHSV-TV withheld their identity unless they come forward to speak.

The waitress's grandfather, John Elledge, was angered by the incident, drawing attention to it with a post on Facebook, calling the customer "a complete and total piece of dung."

Since then the story has been shared widely, in publications including The Huffington Post, The New York Times, and the Daily Mail.

"I've gotten six wonderful grandkids," Elledge told The Washington Post. "Sadie's the third oldest. Her dad's Honduran — my son — and her mother is Mexican. We're a totally bicultural family. A pretty typical bicultural family."

Many Twitter users expressed outrage.
