Khalil Cavil is a Texas waiter who fabricated a racist story that landed him on front pages but it has now been reported that he made up the whole thing.
Cavil sold himself as a victim of racism after he made public an alleged note left to him by a customer at the restaurant he works. The note which he posted to his social media read, ‘we don’t tip terrorist’ also circled his name.
