Dayna Morales, an openly gay woman and former Marine, claims that she was not left a tip while she was waitressing at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater New Jersey, because she was a lesbian.
Earlier this month, Morales posted a picture on Facebook (which has since been removed) showing the receipt from a couple she had served that night. The picture showed a line through the tip section and a note that read, “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life.”

Despite Morales allegations, the couple contacted the press and informed them that they did, in fact, leave a tip and that they had the documentation to prove it. There meal was $93.55 and they claim they left an $18.00 tip. They presented their visa bill that shows that they were charged the amount that included the tip ($111.55) proving that the whole thing was a hoax.

The couple is outraged that they would be in the middle of such a ridiculous hoax, and says they would never say anything like that. “We’ve never not left a tip when someone gave good service, and we would never leave a note like that,” the wife said. The husband says that he supports gay marriage and that he didn’t vote for the Governor, Chris Christie, because he didn’t support it. “Never would a message like that come from us,” he said.
They came forward after hearing that Morales was receiving tips from all over the world. “I just felt like people have a right to know that — it’s fine if people want to donate to her or to the Wounded Warriors, but they’re doing it under a false pretense,” the wife said.
Even with the proof that she was lying, Morales is still standing by her story. “I don’t know, all I know is what I’ve been saying,” Morales told the press. The restaurant is aware of the incident but has not released a statement until they complete their investigation.
