Some donations to waitress who said she received anti-gay note being refunded

UPDATE: Dayna Morales no longer employed at Gallop Asian Bistro
Saturday, December 7, 2013

NEW YORK — The New Jersey waitress who said she was stiffed on a tip because she is gay is now returning donations sent to her by people across the country.

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 that she received an offensive note scrawled on a customer’s check in lieu of a tip.

But after a New Jersey couple claimed that the story was a scam, and the Wounded Warrior Project said they had no record of receiving any donations from Morales, some of her supporters began reporting they have received emails from PayPal indicating “Dayna Morales just sent you a refund.”

WNBC-TV says it has confirmed at least four donations to Morales have been refunded, and that Morales’ PayPal account was opened the night she first reported the homophobic note on Facebook, before her story went viral.

WNBC-TV reports:

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 the couple whose receipt Morales allegedly used, said their tipped her generously, and produced the matching customer copy printed 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.

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

Update: On Saturday, the Gallop Asian Bistro announced that it and Morales had made “a joint decision” that she will no longer continue her employment at the restaurant.

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

  16. She had a negative impact on many people in the LGBTQ community...We seriously do not need very public stories like hers to drag us down ....Her sudden change of conscience to return the money is the only right thing to do...However this does not make her immune to the consequences, that ANYONE, regardless of their sexual lifestyle, would have to face for deceit ...Fire her and get her into counseling.

  17. Made a mistake? Really? Sounds like she knew fully well what she was doing. As far as returning the money and having a change of conscience I don't buy that. Her story came apart at the seams after the couple she slandered came forward. She should be fired (head first out of a cannon) and have her Veteran's benefits revoked. She is an insult upon all Veterans and the LGBT community.

  20. It’s really a shame her accusation was false. I shared the initial story thinking how horrible and discriminatory it was. To find out after the fact is was all a lie and so many good people stepped up to support her, it really makes you lose faith in some.

  27. Yes, this is their proof that both subtle and candid heterosexism does not exist. Bottom line: it is proof that no one group has monopoly on deception or honesty. If they want to point to Dayna, I got a whole lot of fingers pointing back at televangelists (just to start with).

  40. I’ll definitely give her that she didn’t ask people to send her money, so she’s not technically required to give it back. However, shame on her! There are so many people being discriminated every single day, and she steals the attention they should be getting. Not cool chick, not cool.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 1:46am
  41. It's fraud though. She lied, opened up a Paypal the night she lied, and accepted people's money on the pretenses of that lie. It's very meticulous, you don't open up a Paypal the night you plan on lying to a bunch of people ABOUT money with a sensitive topic as your push unless you plan/hope to get money out of people. (Isn't that also information you have to give another? I'm not well versed in Paypal. If it is info you give out, how is it not asking for money?) Lying, knowing that you're lying, intending to get money out of people, these people reasonably being able to believe the lie, and damage to these people are all parts of fraud. She's technically not required out of her own free will, but if she doesn't someone might take her to court in which she'll then probably have to pay them back anyway. Because this is fraud.

  42. I didn't say it wasn't. She did prey on people's kindness, but people have got to stop sending their life savings to these people when this stuff happens. It sucks and yes if it were a true story then the people who do that sort of thing should be humiliated. She should be ashamed of herself for making a mockery of the LGBT struggle in society. I agree that she should pay it back, but the point is she didn't twist their arms to make them send it either.

I would guess she has personal issues and needed to prove herself in some way. What’s even more sad..is our society at helping this person become famous. I say we need to pass along a few good therapist to her that are in her area and end this. There are more important issues in our world that needs our attention!

We don’t know what happened in her past to make her perpetrate this type of lie. Think about it from her perspective and the kind of pain that makes someone do this.

    But that doesn’t take away from all those who really do face discrimination like this on a daily basis.

I am so disgusted at what this act of fraud has done to the integrity of the lgbt community and frankly I am not too inclined to give it a “mental illness” type of excuse. I see this as a self-centered attempt to defraud good hearted people who would give to the “poor waitress” in an attempt to show that not everyone feels that way. It may cause these people to feel that they might not want to give as freely to someone truly in need.

  113. A mistake Catherine? A mistake is forgetting your checkbook at home. A mistake is accidentally making a wrong turn. What she did was hardly an “oops, my bad” situation. She deliberately calculated a false story, a LIE, to gain public sympathy. She created a pay pal account with the calculated expectation of sympathy money. She used a family who did nothing wrong and who actually tipped her generously for her own personal gain. She lied about what she did in the service to gain even MORE money by lying about donating it to a military charity. Exactly where is the “mistake” in all this? I agree that people shouldn’t call her such viscious names because that is just as wrong as she is. But I’ll be damned if I will give her one ounce of sympathy because she made a “mistake.” What she did was a scam and a fraud and unfortunately there are those who will jump on this to defame and blame the lgbt community.

  123. She just hurt herself by doing that. She will not be able to get a job now. Everyone knows who she is.

  124. Why drag on “straight” people cause more issues for themselves then the “gay community” itself! News shows just that. But what she did is wrong and she is human

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 9:47am
  125. Oh geez. We are spreading hate guys! Yeah, what she did was very wrong and i wont argue that. However, our community is suppose to be about NOT judging, acceptance and forgiveness, right? Sometimes as humans we must fuck up huge to get a new perspective on life. Hopefully she takes this as a “lesson learned” and us a whole can move past this without the unnecessary negativity below. Remember “never sink to their level” well some of you have with bashing her. No one is perfect but karma takes care of what needs to be done. Live with love within your hearts. :)

  126. Bitch indeed..look closely into her eyes. Lies are so damning and damaging.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 10:01am
  127. oh Please, And people in the Strait World Dnt lie and scam?! Why Would Any Normal Balanced Member of society use Her as an Example of The Lbgt World, it just Goes To Show Theres Bad And Good In Both sides, and We re all The Same !

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 10:02am
  128. All this shows is that there either she doesn’t have family and friends support with her mental health nor is the accessing medical support, she isn’t the first and won’t be the last it could have quite easily been another minority to do this and it’s not a president for the LGBTQ community, it’s just a sorry state of affairs that the media has fuelled.

  129. I dislike liars, she gives all gay people a bad name. She should be jailed.

  130. Nikki Bergen tell it girl you are so right and this situation shouldn’t be taken lightly period

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 11:27am
  131. This woman is a disgrace. She manipulated the LGBT community in order to make a profit for herself. Her lying and self-serving plan should be grounds for losing her job. Further, the LGBT community should issue some sort of statement expressing our dismay and affirming that her actions are her own and in no way supported by us.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 11:36am
  132. she should be charged with obtaining money by deception.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 11:57am
  133. Too bad this was her 15 minutes of fame and this was the way she chose to use it!! I shouldn’t feel sorry for her but in all reality we don’t know what’s going on in her life.. and unless she responds we never will!! I am not God, I will not judge.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 12:26pm
  134. The fact is this story should have been better researched before it was reported as truth

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 12:38pm
  135. I have been fired from many jobs..been discriminated against left and right for looking the same way and for having the same lifestyle..the crap she pulled just makes things harder for people like myself..if you actually have a good job..where people treat you well..why in the hell would you risk all of that just to pull some shitty stunt? No matter how crappy I get treated by anyone..I would never pull something like this!

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 1:05pm
  136. Thanks for setting us back a few years. But hey just because you’re gay, doesn’t make you a perfect person.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 1:35pm
  137. Thanks for setting us back with fighting for our rights and respect!

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 2:10pm
  138. STOP POSTING HER. She needs a psychiatrist, not more attention.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 2:47pm
  139. What a douche

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 2:50pm
  140. It is a shame that she exploited an already discriminatory subject for personal gain and her 15 seconds of fame. The LGBT community would be better off without people like this in our community. This type of action, is what keeps the fires burning in the hearts of those that are willing to discriminate against te LGBT community.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 3:05pm
  141. She is such an embarrassment to us

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 3:28pm
  142. She lied to get her 15 min of fame and now she’s paying for it because the whole world will now know her as a liar…

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 3:53pm
  143. Exactly Christopher Cleary, your are 100% correct. Well said.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 4:02pm
  144. SOME donations being returned? Why not all bitch! She should lose her job & be run out of town.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 4:04pm
  145. What we need to do is stop giving her additional fame and stop talking about it! The more she is out there like this, the more acceptable she thinks it is…she is getting all the attention and like a psycho does not care that it is negative……best way to get something to go away is to IGNORE!

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 4:06pm
  146. Why didn’t she just give them to a charity?

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 4:12pm
  147. Lies catch up to you! Hope she learned thru all this embarrassment.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 4:53pm
  148. there are all kinda crazies out there

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 5:11pm
  149. she is a piece of *&^%, she lied, she set us up, all of us, I am 47 years old have been the target of hate, judgment, and discrimination we have worked hard for the equal rights we have and this baby dyke in one swift move set us back make us out to be liars

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 5:24pm
  150. She should be prosecuted!

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 5:38pm
  151. Must have been her first scam. She picked the wrong customers in her setup.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 5:55pm
  152. awesome. you defame a family in order to garner sympathy and steal from others who show support. something is inherently wrong with you.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 7:54pm
  153. She is worse than garbage. She set us back just when we were moving forward. She got her 15 minutes of fame now crawl back into the sewer.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 7:59pm
  154. she has obvious mental health problems… if you choose to criticise , then remember this person stills has feeling too. be positive if you can

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 8:04pm
  155. Very very sad.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 9:16pm
  156. I hope her 15 minutes of fame was worth it. I H8 liars.

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 9:43pm
  157. Put her in jail

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 11:25pm
  158. She should fry

    Posted on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 11:29pm

  160. FB: Why wont you let me read Christopher Cleary’s replies?

    Posted on Monday, December 9, 2013 at 4:16am
  161. this is highly disgusting. doesn’t matter what her orientation is…. anyone who pulls this kind of crap is a disappointment to the human race! there are lots of stories out there around the same time of not tipping over various discrimination. one lady was awarded $10K.
