‘She’s doctored up our check!’: Couple disputes lesbian waitress’ viral claim they stiffed her
BRIDGEWATER, NJ, November 26, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A lesbian waitress' story about anti-gay patrons who wrote on her receipt that they refused to tip because they do not “agree with your lifestyle” is a “fraud,” according to the family involved.
A man and woman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted New York's NBC 4 to say not only did they not write the message, but they actually left the waitress a tip.
Earlier this month former Marine Dayna Morales said she served a rude couple at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, New Jersey.
Instead of a tip, she said the family wrote, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life."
Morales posted a picture of the check on the "Have A Gay Day" Facebook page. (The entry has since been removed.)
“I am THOROUGHLY offended, mad, p---ed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free,” she wrote. (Emphasis in original.)
At the time the bistro's general manager, Byron Lapola, stood by her, saying if the family returned to the restaurant, "Honestly, I would ask them to leave."
That triggered a flood of support – and cash – for Morales. People from across the country showed their support with financial donations.
The story shocked millions – including the anonymous couple, who recognized the receipt as their own. Well, most of it.
“I said, 'Oh my God, she's doctored up our check,” the woman told NBC 4.
The family provided the reporter with copies of the bill – which has the same date and time stamp as the one in Morales' picture, to the minute – as well as copies of their credit card bill, which shows a full charge plus 20 percent tip.
Both receipts show a bill of $93.55. But the family's receipt and the credit card bill show they paid an $18 tip, bringing their total to $115.88 – paid in full.
The couple denies the handwriting is theirs and would be impossible, as the woman is left-handed.
The husband said Morales' alleged Internet fraud was “a disgusting thing to do.”
Confronted with evidence the Bistro's manager asked, “How do you this is not a copy [and] they made it?”
He said Morales is still waiting tables while the restaurant investigates.
Morales denied any wrongdoing. “That's not my handwriting. I don't know,” Morales said.
She said she still intends to donate all of the $3,000 in donations to the Wounded Warrior Project and would not keep a dime for herself.
The husband said Morales obtained those funds by lying about his family. “It's fraud,” he said. “It's a scam.”
If the couple's story holds up, Morales' fib would be far from the most elaborate hate crimes hoax perpetrated by the LGBT movement or other minorities.
Last July Charlie Rogers, a lesbian and former college basketball player, carved a cross into her own chest with a knife in a simulated hate crime. She claimed three masked men broke into her home, bound her with plastic zip ties, carved a cross into her chest and anti-gay slurs into her body, spray painted slurs on her walls, then tried to set her house on fire. In April, she pleaded “no contest” when presented with evidence she staged the entire event. A judge sentenced her to a week in jail and two years of probation.

In August 2012, a homosexual in Montana, Joseph Baken, said three men beat him and called him anti-gay slurs as he was celebrating his 22nd birthday. But video surfaced of him doing a backflip and smacking his face on the pavement.
In 2012, Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) held a “solidarity rally” on behalf of 19-year-old Alexandra Pennell, a lesbian allegedly receiving hate notes. Officials later discovered she planted the notes herself.
In May, police charged a lesbian couple in Colorado with writing “Kill the Gay” on their own garage.
More recently, the Internet lit up with stories of a persecuted 18-year-old lesbian, whose only crime was to fall in love with a 16-year-old girl. As it turned out, Kaitlyn Hunt's victim was 14, and Hunt cyber-bullied her by sending her 20,000 messages after being ordered to have no further contact.
The most famous gay “hate crime,” the murder of Matthew Shepard by "homophobes," has also been exposed as a lie.
A substantial number of hate crimes hoaxes take place each year, whether on sexual or racial grounds.
