NJ Couple Says Gay Waitress Lied About Receiving Note Instead of Tip [VIDEO]

Remember that shocking story about the gay New Jersey waitress who was left a ‘tip’ in the form of a nasty note about her lifestyle?

Turns out it might have all been a hoax.

Dayna Morales, a former marine and now waitress at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, made national headlines when she shared a photo of a receipt on her Facebook page showing no tip left on the customer’s bill. On it was a handwritten note reading, ‘I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life.’

Morales is gay.

People were understandably outraged by this, with patrons and donations pouring into the restaurant in support of Dayna. She warmed more hearts by saying she would donate the money to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Except a New Jersey couple has now come forward and said they were the customers associated with that receipt, and not only did they generously tip Dayna Morales, they left no such note for her.

The husband and wife couple want to remain anonymous, but they say they know for a fact it is their receipt, the husband telling NBC New York he could make out his name through the blurred print. He added that he thinks the whole thing is a scam.

The couple shared their customer copy of the receipt, which shows the $18 tip, with the date and timestamp seeming to match up to the slip Morales presented.

But hey, anyone can doctor a customer copy and act like they added a tip, right?

Well, the couple’s credit card statement also shows a charge from the restaurant for $113.55, which would be the total they paid if they added an $18 tip.

When NBC’s reporter asked Morales about the discrepancy or if there had been a misunderstanding, she said, ‘it’s not my handwriting, I don’t know.’

The restaurant released a statement referring to a ‘pending internal investigation.’

Err…sounds like something’s not right.
