Willie Robertson may be known for his long beard and patriotic bandana, but now the “Duck Dynasty” star may also be known as a big tipper. A report has come out from TMZ on Feb. 11 that says he left a 100 percent tip for a couple of waiters at a steak house as he hung out with a small group of conservatives at the restaurant.

Willie and Korie Robertson were having dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Washington D.C. after the State of the Union address last month. They were joined by a group of some famous faces including radio hosts Mark Levin and Sean Hannity, former Congressman Newt Gingrich and GOP Senator Ted Cruz. The group ate together and looked like they were deep in conversation during their meal. Hannity had posted a couple of photos on his Twitter account right after the event.

Robertson was said to have picked up the tab and paid for the tip along with it. However, his version of tipping the waiters that brought their food and drinks was quite extravagant. The tip was for $5000, which was the full cost of the tab. Yes, he is a 100 percent tipper! Although the cost of their dining seems quite extravagant to begin with, it is great to see this kind of generosity coming from someone that seems to have a big heart. Although the “Duck Dynasty” reality star probably didn’t intend for this to be in the news, it is pretty cool to hear.

This kind of big tipping at various restaurants has been in the news recently by people that are sharing their money with others. Employees are always surprised and thrilled by the kindheartedness of strangers. It just goes to show that there are still generous people that are out to make the day of others they choose to help along the way.

Willie Robertson may not be a stranger, but he did seize the opportunity to share his wealth with a couple of waiters that will remember the day well.
