PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is defending his decision to leave a 20-cent tip. The owner of Philadelphia's PYT Burger joint posted the receipt online showing the two-dime tip on the $61 bill.

McCoy says he left such a low tip because he received bad service.

"Just to be honest like I am always, I tip on my service," McCoy said. "I think there's a difference between good service and bad service or just having a bad day. There's a big difference with just being rude and disrespectful. That's how that went.

"Listen, anybody that knows me can't say I'm disrespectful.  In any restaurant I go around in Philadelphia, I tip very well. I'm very respectful. If you check on that restaurant -- the backlash that has from everybody talking about that place, but good food, good food."

The owner of PYT Burger disputes McCoy's claim that he received bad service.

Actor Charlie Sheen joined the controversy, pledging on Twitter to give the waiter $1,000.

    The waiter now gets $1000 for being a terrible waiter and then on top of it, posting a receipt which is repulsive. The waiter shouldn’t be given $1000, he should be fired.
