Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams isn’t just out here stiff-arming defenders—he’s also stiff-arming food servers he says don’t bring his food quickly enough.

According to TMZ, on Monday night, Williams, who was in Washington, D.C., to take on the Washington Redskins, stopped by the Ledo Restaurant in College Park, Md., with a few folks for a quick bite to eat. According to a bartender who took to Twitter to blast the 33-year-old running back, he left a 75-cent tip.

“Just now at work I had DeAngelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar,” the server wrote. “His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but 75 cents. So there you go Stealers [sic] fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh.”

Williams didn’t take too kindly to the jab and took to Twitter to tell his side.

Jimmy Marcos, a co-owner at the restaurant, later told TMZ that the server had been fired for airing the restaurant’s dirty dishes on a public forum. “We were in the wrong” and “the customer is always right,” said Marcos, who added: “I want to offer anything I can do. I’ll be sure to apologize in person next time he visits, and pick up his next meal.”
