Tip Receipt Hoax: Family Denies Leaving a Nasty Comment in the Tip Box for Gay ServerBy: Erika Watts - November 26, 2013
Remember the waitress in New Jersey that claimed she wasn’t given a tip because she is gay? It turns out that is a hoax. A couple that wishes to remain anonymous contacted NBC 4 New York and said the whole thing is a lie, plus they showed their receipt and credit card statement as proof that they did leave a tip.
Dayna Morales submitted a picture of a receipt to a pro-gay Facebook page earlier this month that contained an anti-gay message where her tip was supposed to go. The note left on the receipt reads “sorry I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle & the way you live your life.”
Morales said that in addition to not receiving a tip for being gay, the family also made a rude comment to her based on her appearance. “Not only was it a family with two kids, but as I introduce myself and tell them my name is Dayna – the mom proceeds to look at me and say ‘oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!'” In the Facebook post, Morales went on to say that she is a former Marine and that she served “to keep ignorant people like them free.”
