Dayna Morales, a gay waitress at a New jersey restaurant, went public with the allegation that a Christian family did not tip her, due to her sexual orientation and left a gay slur on a copy of their bill. People began sending the waitress money, due to the fraudulent story. However, the family has come forward, producing a receipt from their meal which reveals, they did indeed leave her a tip.
The bill was $93.55 and the family left a reasonable tip of $18.00. The family produced a copy of their restaurant bill and VISA statement as proof. Based on new reports, the waitress made up the story to make Christians look bad, due to the Bible forbidding homosexuality and referring to it as a sin one needs to repent of.
Family Says They Did Tip Gay Server, Didn’t Leave Note
Tuesday, Nov 26, 2013 | Updated 4:56 PM EST – After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn’t write any such note.
Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip. The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.”
Morales indicated in her Facebook post, and in subsequent media interviews — including with NBC 4 New York — that the customer wrote that line. But a family contacted NBC 4 New York claiming their receipt from the restaurant shows they did leave a tip, and provided what they said was a credit card statement as proof.
The husband and wife, who asked to remain anonymous, showed NBC 4 New York a receipt that appeared to be printed at the same minute, on the same date, for the same $93.55 total, except with an $18 tip. They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55…
A manager and the restaurant owner insisted they had the original ticket for the $93.55 charge, but would not produce the receipt for NBC 4 New York and could not explain why the family’s credit card was charged for more…
They said they came forward because the story of the receipt note didn’t appear to be going away; Morales had recently announced that people were sending her tips from all over the world, and was donating some of the money to the Wounded Warrior Project. “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.
