The restaurateur who took to social media to blast NFL star LeSean McCoy for leaving a 20-cent tip told CNBC it "wasn't right" to publicize the incident but refused to apologize for doing so.
Tommy Up, the owner of the Philadelphia burger restaurant PYT, caused a stir after posting McCoy's receipt that showed the Philadelphia Eagles running back left a 20-cent tip on a $61 bill last weekend.
"I would like to apologize for taking the receipt down the first time after I chickened out, and then I put it back on. … I'm not going to say I'm sorry," Up said in an interview with "Closing Bell."
