Vice President Mike Pence has been accused of undertipping after his alleged receipt was shared on social media.

A Twitter user claimed that the Republican politician had only tipped a few dollars after a visit to a cafe.

Sachin Chheda tweeted a picture of the unverified receipt and said: “Here’s the character of these people.

“A friend’s friend works at a restaurant that served @Mike_Pence at lunch today. He tipped $5 on $45 bill.

“This is who these people are. Remember that, always.”

He later added: “The issue here is that he should be shamed for undertipping.”

The vice president allegedly ordered two chipotle chicken sandwiches, ginger ale and two hot chocolates.

In another reply, Chheda said: “The minimum wage for servers is $8-something in Beaver Creek, where this restaurant is.

“...Any good person would have tipped at least $9-$10 on this bill. That’s what this is about.”

Twitter users reacted to the viral claim, with one working out what they believe Pence should have tipped.

Some were also angry due to the impact of the pandemic of the hospitality industry.

Others agreed that the alleged actions demonstrate the true character of a tipper.

A few claimed it showed inherent problems with the tipping system.

However, some social media users defended Pence’s alleged tip for the meal.

The vice president is reportedly on holiday in Colorado.
