A waitress who was given a $40 tip by George W Bush later trashed the former president on Twitter accusing him of ‘doing’ 9/11.

Smith tweeted a photo of herself with Bush and wife Laura and added: ‘Bush did 911 but he did me a solid and left me a hella tip #’.

But Leisa Smith’s joke has backfired and many took to social media to call her out for her ‘insensitive’ and ‘stupid’ comments.

One tweeter commented: ‘Bush didn’t ‘do’ 9/11, terrorists did. Bush retaliated against them’.

While another said: ‘I hope you work there till you 70 lol. You ain’t ready for the real world! haha #Stupid.’

And a user called Bob Koch wrote: ‘You gladly take his money and then dog him on social media? So disrespectful and uneducated. I hope you grow up and learn. Good luck’

But Smith claims that she was ‘only joking’ when she sent the tweet and ‘doesn’t actually think that Bush ‘did’ 9/11.

She told Mic: ‘I have a couple of friends that use the meme a lot and they were the only ones I was expecting to see the tweet.

Smith also tweeted a statement that re-iterated that it was only meant as a joke.

She said: ‘I don’t believe Bush did 9/11 it was meant as a sarcastic joke. I didn’t mean to make fun of 9/11 or the people involved, I was only trying to mock the people that believe in the conspiracy.’

She also added: President George W. Bush (sic) and his wife were the nicest people I have ever met and had I known the tweet would blow out of proportion like this I would have never tweeted it.’

And while the $40 tip on the $21.47 bill was generous, the former president is currently valued at around $20 million, according to TIME.
