A waitress has received  $82,000 in tips from people around the world who have been left heartened after they saw her stand up to a racist Silicon Valley CEO inside her restaurant.

Gennica Cochran, a server at Lucia restaurant in Carmel Valley, California, escorted Michael Lofthouse, 37, out after he yelled ‘Trump is going to f*** you’ at an Asian family enjoying a meal out on Fourth of July.

She was hailed an ‘everyday hero’ by people who have been donating money to the waitress on GoFundMe.

One page set-up to tip Cochran is titled ‘A Big Tip for an Everyday Hero’, and has already raised $65,000.

Two other GoFundMe accounts have raised an additional $15,000 collectively – and the money is still pouring in.

Cochran told KGO-TV that the money will allow her to pursue yoga teaching, and she is also trying to devise a way to send some of the money on to others in the service industry.
