A Saltgrass Steak House employee's post went viral on Facebook after he shared a photo of a racist note that was left on a receipt.

The server, Khalil Cavil, shared a photo of the note that said "We don't tip terrorists" on a bill for more than $100.

Cavil captioned the photo on Facebook saying he wasn't going to let the comment bring him down.

"I have decided to let this encourage me, and fuel me to change the world the only way I know how," said Cavil in the Facebook post.

CBS 7 reached out to Saltgrass Steak House on the incident and received the following statement:

"We stand by and support our employee. Racism of any form is unacceptable and we have banned this customer from returning to our establishment," said Saltgrass Steak House COO Terry Turney.
