Waitress Accused of Forging Anti-Gay Note from Customers

After getting media attention, family says she was tipped and they didn't leave note


Dayna Morales, a gay former Marine who waits tables in New Jersey, made headlines earlier this month when she said a couple left her an anti-gay message on a credit card slip instead of a tip.

But the family accused of leaving the note has since produced a credit card statement to show they paid a tip, an NBC affiliate in New York reported.

The note Miss Morales initially posted on Facebook said, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."

People from all over the state visited Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater to make up for the tip for which Miss Morales was supposedly stiffed. She even announced that she would donate the money she received to Wounded Warrior Project.
