    Praying for you, at the bottom of receipt. This did not sit well with Judd, the 20-year-old waitress who got stiffed.

Don't pray for me darling, I have everything I could possibly want and need in my life. (The post is no longer visible to the public. Judd has either deleted the post or changed her privacy settings.) — SPLC (@splcenter) April 15, 2016 I never expected a hateful gesture like this, Judd told KAUZ.
