A CRUMBL Cookie customer has hit out after claiming the company automatically added a $2 tip to his bill.
Lawrence Kim took to TikTok after questioning his $8 charge for one of the popular sweet treats.
The food influencer who blogs under the handle @asianchowdown said: "So I got a notification on Apple that I had spent about eight bucks on a Crumbl cookie for one cookie.
"So I was checking my Apple history and it says that they automatically put a $2 tip.
"I'm like 'what the hell did you guys even do to deserve this?'"
His video has now been watched more than 300,000 times.
'CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS'
But some of his followers have been quick to point out they believe it to be Kim's fault.
One said it was "nobodies fault for but you're own" adding: "Check what you pay for. Don't just press pay."

Others backed Kim, with one viewer writing: "Tipping is becoming insane."
Another said: "As a waitress, I feel like only waitresses or people who do personal services should get tipped."
Kim later told The Daily Dot he has lived in LA his whole life and said that automatic tipping "is only common in restaurants where you have a table of usually about 6-8".
He added: “Not common for a self-service register cookie shop."
Crumbl Cookie replied to his video, writing: "Hi! You can tip $0, but are opted in initially which is common for food & bev.
"Each Crumbl is individually owned so baker pay may differ."
The Sun has reached out to the company for additional comment.
