Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen has offered to give a waiter $1,000 after he was left a 20 cent tip by an NFL star.

The 49-year-old actor's offer comes after American footballer McCoy hand wrote the 20 cent tip on his receipt after splashing out $61.56 on a meal at the eatery which led to restaurant owner Tommy Up sharing a picture of the bill on the establishment's Facebook page.

In a message accompanying the image, he wrote: ''The twenty cent tip that the Eagles' LeSean McCoy just left our server on his $60 check is going to come in really handy for that new official NFL McCoy jersey he had his heart set on.

''That is a .03% tip. New record! (sic)''

Tommy then deleted the post after making a statement addressing the situation.

Server Rob - who is a Baltimore Ravens fan - claims McCoy and his friends were using rude language and making "derogatory comments" during their time in the restaurant.

Speaking to, he said: "I kept my cool for as long as I could, where you just don't want them yelling and cursing you."

''I asked some questions, they weren't really responsive. They were cursing, making derogatory comments. I put their order in and forgot one of their appetisers, which I apologised for."

''They ordered things and, once they got it, said, 'We ain't eating this s**t. We don't want it.' "
