Country Singer Darius Rucker Blesses Guests by Buying Their Breakfast
By Movieguide® Staff
Grammy-winning artist Darius Rucker decided to spread some love by treating the guests in a South Carolina IHOP to a free meal. Rucker stopped by the local IHOP in Mt. Pleasant, SC, surprising diners with breakfast and servers with a generous tip.
“It was a full restaurant, there were a lot of people. I added it up and he paid,” General Manager Stephen Vitale told CBS Affiliate WCSC-TV.
Vitale said that people were excited and appreciative. However, many did not recognize Rucker, who wore a mask into the restaurant.
“It caused a lot of excitement,” Vitale said. “We know him because he does come in quite often and we consider him a regular. It was a good morning at IHOP.”
After news outlets shared the story on Twitter, people quickly responded to Rucker’s heartfelt blessing:
As if we didn't love this man enough… https://t.co/VAVQnA9IAz
