Lesbian waitress fired after 'anti-gay' hate speech hoax

A US waitress who raked in thousands in donations after claiming a couple didn't tip her because she's gay was fired from her job on Saturday.

Dayna Morales, 22, was finally canned from Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater — nearly a month after she made international headlines over what's likely a hoax.

The restaurant announced her termination on Facebook Saturday shortly after it was revealed she was returning donations from supporters across the world.

The waitress, a former Marine, claimed the couple stiffed her on a $93.55 bill and left a note saying, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."

But her tale of prejudice began to unravel after the unnamed diners came forward with receipts showing an $18 tip.

The purported incident created a media firestorm, with well-wishers sending Morales at least $3,000 in donations through a PayPal account.

Morales claimed she'd send proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project, a veteran's group, but the organisation said it hasn't received anything.

Acquaintances say Morales — who was dishonorably discharged from the military — has a history of fibbing and at one point pretended she had terminal cancer.

"She exaggerated every story," former coworker Julie Howat told The New York Post. "I knew [the receipt] was fake. When the articles came out, everyone at my job laughed

I don't know which is worse: The people who never learn from those who came before them, inventing a false case of intolerance and expecting to get away with it, or the media that reports these cases as fact without looking further into the circumstances/history of the accuser?

What was that definition of insanity again?

A female (and) a lesbian, two of the Left's premier victim groups, and you think the media wouldn't jump all over that story? Sadly, in most of these cases, it's usually the complaining "victim" that's behind it, be it sex-based, race-based, or religion-based.

Recently, three young men were arrested for painting Swastikas on dozens of cars in a Jewish neighborhood in NYC. Yes, all three were Jewish.

Or, the black NYC firefighter who was found to be behind placing a noose on the lockers of other black firefighters to (create) the (false) impression of racial discrimination.

Unfortunately, we now live in an age where it's very easy to get instant and almost unlimited attention via these so-called "social media sites". And, human nature being what it is, people will very rarely miss the opportunity to make fools of themselves, simply for attention.

The sad thing is that the media did do its diligence *after* the couple who did pay a tip proved it. If they had done their diligence first then a wiser reporter would have not only rejected the story but hopefully put this young lady into touch with a mental health counselor who could perhaps have helped here get over her problem.

Its obvious she's been looking for attention and making up stories to get it, she needs help.

But no, the blind to the truth media we have today never do their due diligence when the story meets one of the PC metrics and as so often happens the story turns out to be greatly exaggerated or completely false.

Every openly lesbian woman I have ever known has been batshit crazy.

I don't mean kooky or different.

I mean bipolar, depressed and prone to acts of violence.

Every. Single. One.

No Duh!, that declaration too may have been another cry for attention by her.

However, a proper definition of sanity would exclude any homosexual since not procreating is a form of suicide. They will angrily deny it but the truth is not so complex as they would like it to be.

2:55 So first you think that homosexuals do not procreate and then you say that people who don't procreate are insane! Look in the mirror buddy for a definition of insanity and ignorant stupidity!

stinky said...

Um, it's true, homosexuals do not procreate, at least not genetically (barring an occasional modern-day tech miracle).

I don't think it's necessarily insane, though, as there are other ways to contribute to the future: e.g. the soldiers of WWII who risked and/or gave their lives to end holocaust were not insane, they were heroes.

It's those who choose an empty, purposeless life, for whatever reason (usually vanity), who are truly crazy.

Many homosexuals marry and have children through social pressure, or may recognize their homosexuality long after having children. Some homosexuals who want to be parents father or mother children with homosexuals or heterosexuals of the opposite sex, whether or not using conventional methods.
Yes, genes aren't the only contribution people make to posterity. Even having children doesn't guarantee they will have descendants.

Anon 4:35 - Did as I predicted, angrily denied the truth that stares them in the face.

There is a reason why suicide is still a huge cause of death in the homosexual community and you can deny it all you want but that doesn't change reality a bit.

3:41 It's bigots like you whose cruel attitudes drive people to suicide. Clearly, you lack a conscience or any human compassion. (I hope you don't pretend to be a Christian!)

3:41 AM is making a safe prediction that there might be disagreement (angrily or otherwise) with such an egregious claim : that homosexuals commit suicide because they are insane due to an inability or unwillingness to reproduce (which is patently untrue beyond the population in general).
It would seem that 3:41 has some sexuality issues closer to home!

Ah the gay bigots and their usual attacks. Give it up, you sound like a broken record repeating the same old stuff.

Also very leftist of you to move for personal attack instead of reasoned debate because the other side has a point you cannot deny.

2:54 - The remedy is with yourself, as clearly the criticism ("attack" is your drama-queen term) would obviously be given up if the anti-gay bigots like yourself gave up their bigotry in the first place.
