I Am Sure That Millennials Everywhere Have Heard This Story, At Least the Lie on Social Media

7/23/18 Washington Post:
The Texas restaurant company that banned a customer after an employee’s story of a receipt scrawled with a racial epithet went viral said Monday that it had parted ways with the employee and learned that the story was spurious.
“After further investigation, we have learned that our employee fabricated the entire story,” Terry Turney, the chief operating officer of Saltgrass steakhouses, said in a statement. “Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equaling disturbing.”
There are real hate crimes, but so many of the publicized ones are just progressive agit-prop.

My heuristic for this is if the initial report isn't from the local PD and the story goes national quickly, it's either a fake, or completely misreported.

Completely misreported but not fake: Trayvon Martin was actually shot by George Zimmerman. But almost nothing else about the story as it appeared in the media was true.
