Charity: No donation from server who said she was ‘tipped’ with anti-gay note

Friday, December 6, 2013

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — A spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project told LGBTQ Nation on Friday they had no record of any donations received from a New Jersey waitress who received thousands of dollars in extra tips and donations after she claimed she was stiffed by a family who left her an anti-gay note instead of a tip.

Dayna Morales, a server at the Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, N.J., said last month she was donating more than $3,000 to Wounded Warriors, a support charity for post-9/11 wounded veterans, after tips began pouring in from around the country on news of the homophobic note.

Morales alleged that on Nov. 13, she received an offensive note scrawled on the customer’s check in lieu of a tip. The message said: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life.”

But days after the news went viral, Morales’ story began to unwind.

A New Jersey couple, who asked to remain anonymous, contacted WNBC-TV claiming that the story was a scam. The couple produced their receipt that was printed at the same time, on the same date, for the same amount, except with an $18 tip. They also produced a copy of a credit card bill supporting their claim they were charged for the meal plus the tip, a total of $111.55.

The Gallop Asian Bistro first insisted they had the original ticket for the $93.55 charge, but days later announced that “Ms. Morales is currently not on our employee schedule while are still working to complete our investigation.”

A manager for the restaurant told LGBTQ Nation Friday that Morales remains suspended indefinitely, pending the results of its investigation. He declined to comment further or provide further details.

Last week, former colleagues and friends reported Morales that has a reputation for lying.

According to her former co-workers, Morales, an ex-Marine reservist, once told co-workers she was sent to Afghanistan and that everyone in her platoon died in an explosion — except her.

A U.S. Marines spokesman later said “there is no indication of combat service in Iraq or Afghanistan” in Morales’ military record.

A Pentagon source told LGBTQ Nation Friday that Morales had in fact been given an administrative general discharge for failure to appear at required monthly reserve drills.

Morales could not be reached for comment, and has not spoken to the media since confronted by WNBC-TV with allegations that she fabricated the story.

  4. I guess you're right, the world will see this as a gay person doing others an injustice and representative of that. Ugh. :( Although for me, at this point it doesn't matter if she's gay, straight or a donkey. None of that is the issue anymore. The issue is that a human being decided to make up a ridiculous story to scam people out of their cash, and I'm upset with her for using real life issues some of us actually face as the means. Disgusted.

  11. She is an embarrassment for human kind, period. Anyone with morals and/or values would not stoop this low to scam people out of money the way she did. She made the restaurant look like a fool, the poor folks who did tip her a fool, the people who supported her...a slew of people. This has nothing to do with race, color, sexuality or creed. But, because she used-as her story-her sexuality, and the notion of racism and also, the fact that she was in the military, she has karma coming right to her. Sad, really. Because she just made it bad for people who are shunned every single day because they are from the LGBT community. She makes me sick.

Bridgewater is a rich town too, so she’s probably not hurting for money, unless of course the amount of tips she’s getting is solely based upon her attitude. Can’t believe she totally USED the Wounded Warrior Project as a cover up for her grimy agenda that was all a product of a huge lie in the first place and had nothing to do with being discriminated upon/some anti-gay bias. Really she is a disgrace to the LGBT community.

  117. In her defense (undeservedly, mind you), she said she’d donate “once all the money was in.” Granted it’s not necessary to wait, but that’s probably why there’s no record yet. Doesn’t mean she’s gonna keep all of it (though I think she’s a horrible person for doing what she did and keeping any of it for herself).

Her co-workers say she lied about having brain cancer, she lied about having a whole platoon of soldiers die and she lived, as far as the information, yes you can find out why people where released from service as well as if she was involved in battle. Please don’t act as if the gays and lesbians are honest. I’ve met a handful that are and 3 handfuls that aren’t. Clearly she heard the other similar story and thought she’d try it.

  143. It’s hard enough to get discrimination against the LGBTQ community noticed by authorities. We have to deal with it daily and In order to make this change, we should report it, but HONESTLY!….being dishonest about it perpetuates the anger and hate that is leveled against us and is a step in the wrong direction!

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:06pm

  148. Ok so she is giving the LGBT community a bad reputation. The next time this happens, god forbid it does, no one is going to believe the employee. I’m outraged and embarrassed for the LGBT community as we are just honest as everyone else, but this woman is a liar, a thief, and a criminal. She needs to be punished for theft.

  154. How many times are you going to repost this fucking thing

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:13pm
  155. Steven, I completely agree with what you’re saying, however it’s not just isolated within the LGBT community. I know that’s our main focus here, but by saying that only a quarter of the LGBT’s you met have been decent is a bit far fetched. Humanity as a whole is completely flawed and will guarantee to disappoint, however I don’t think marginalisation on grounds such as this is fair. In conclusion to my rant, this behaviour is not strictly limited to this community in particular and I think sometimes we’re so quick to put labels on actions that we forget at the end of the day everyone is just a human being trying to get through their life the best way they can. I’m in no way condoning what she’s done, but clearly there’s evidence here to support the suspicion of a mental illness and that has to be taken into consideration. We need to look beyond the actions and see the people commiting them and see and understand their motivations and desires. Was this intended to be malicious? Probably not. Was she anticipating how viral this would become? Unlikely. I would just hate to see this girl commit suicide over the words of complete strangers over something she shouldn’t have done, but at what end will there be resolution? There’s so much hate in this world, there’s no harm in having an abundance of compassion or empathy. I hope this can only serve as a valuable lesson for her and for others.

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:14pm
  156. true what she did was wrong maybe before we judge her we should step in her shoes maybe this was her way of crying out for help true a bad way to do it so instead of hating her give her the help she obviously needs

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:25pm
  162. If anyone hears about this story and says to themselves, “See!?!? All LGBT people are bad!”, the they either 1) already had their mind made up or 2) need therapy. And I agree with John Croteau’s comment…Wounded Warriors has MANY MANY ways to donate to their cause without people going through a private individual to do so.

  172. And this is why I'm against Hate Crime Laws. . .this bitch needs a beat down. Not because she's gay, but because she is a scumbag.

    Replied on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:40pm
  173. That's why whomever gets their hands on her, if someone does, would have to refrain from using any derogatory terms that involve her sexual orientation. They could call her a lying scumbag and pathetic loser all day long, though.

    Replied on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:41pm
  174. Doesn't work that way in practice. That's the problem with the laws, they don't clearly define what is a Hate Crime. All it takes is a prosecutor that states that her orientation was partial motivation and it becomes a Hate Crime with more stiff punishments. Trust me, if I kill a person. . . I hate them at the moment. I fucking hate "Feel Good" laws. Laws that are redundant, but are easily abused by prosecutors and/or media bias; just to make people feel better.

  204. Omg are people really still defending her? Looking through the comments there are actually people who still believe her? I mean really, there is no debate anymore that she did this. Stop defending her just because shes gay. This isnt an issue that has anything to do with the LGBT+ community any longer. This is now only concerning a sick individual, a human. Not a lesbian, not a woman, a person. A human being. This does not reflect everyone in the community.

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 8:31pm

  265. I agree with all the comments. She should also apologize to the family and restaurant she wronged. And I would add if she broke any laws, she should be prosecuted for scamming and be made to pay restitution to her donors.

  266. I bet she’s on a plane right now to somewhere tropical with all those donations “she was gonna send in” That’s why they can’t reach her. Petit you’re right though. It doesn’t matter who or what she is she’s human and did something that makes the whole human race look horrible. and people who are antigay assholes are gonna have a field day with this and she’s gonna be the one to blame for lying.

  267. I think is rather obvious this girl was trying to drum up a cool story so she could appear on the Ellen show…

  268. A con artist is a con artist regardless of their standing in the spectrum of gay or straight

  270. Talk about a true fucked up situation. It went from bad to worse. Hope she gets help cause obviously needs it.

  271. For 1 I have been a server for over 23 years for 2 I am gay so this makes me look bad both ways but I am a very firm believer in karma she will get what is coming to her

  272. Whats wrong with her. I fully support lgbt but it is NOT ok to use that as an excuse for attention shes making everyone else look bad

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:29pm
  273. There’s this thing called karma. It’s coming for her.

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:32pm
  274. Yep. Called it.

  276. Get a new job

  277. I agree that she should apologize, but I do NOT agree thay this says anything about gays-or fans any fire to those already hating gays. That’s what someone who already hates gay people is going to say as an excuse (dem gays are dem dere crooks!). If they are using this as an excuse to hate gays more, they’re probably hate mongers to begin with (and idiots). She’s a terrible reflection of people in general, not gay people! !

  279. She needs help. I lived with a habitual liar… don’t anymore.

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:54pm
  280. She is a disgrace and really makes our cause suffer. I’m ashamed for her and at her

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:54pm
  281. Wow, now that’s low, falsely claiming you didn’t get a tip and also saying you’re going to donate a large portion of your support tips to a charity but not following through is the worst. I can see now why she was discharged, she’s not a good person.

    Posted on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 11:55pm
  282. She’s definitely going to get fired since she’s already suspended, she’ll find it really hard to find new employment now with this crap on her record.

  284. Makes the rest of us honest people look bad. It will come back to her. KARMA
