Controversial receipt leads to lesbian waitress Dayna Morales resignation

The New Jersey waitress that ignited the debate about fair tipping for the LGBT community, has been let go from her employer.

According to a December 7 announcement on Facebook, Gallop Asian Bistro made a statement regarding Dayna Morales’ employment with their restaurant. The company explains that they have launched an investigation and the results of it are “inconclusive”. They further went on to say:

Ms. Morales and Gallop Asian Bistro have made a joint decision that Ms. Morales will no longer continue her employment at our restaurant.

Morales made international headlines after she posted a “copy” of a receipt on Have a Gay Day’s Facebook Page. The picture went viral and stirred a tremendous amount of controversy concerning gay rights and equality. Morales claims that a Christian family left her a note claiming they wouldn’t tip her because of her lifestyle.

The story took several turns in some very unlikely directions. Morales reportedly was a former Marine, but after some research by NBC, it turns out Morales was dishonorably discharged after she stopped showing up. The same investigation also claims that Morales told people she had brain cancer. Former Marine’s who worked with Morales won't even acknowledge that she was a Marine because of her history with their elite organization.

Morales then began to receive donations for the incident. Which also backfired after the couple who left the check, came out and explained that they did leave a tip for a total of $18.00. The couple did not feel that anything unusual happened that evening to prompt the controversy.

Morales has been reportedly returning the donations, which were received from all over the world.

The original post by Morales had the following comment attached to the image:

“I am THOROUGHLY offended mad pissed off and hurt that THIS is what her kids will grow up learning and that I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free. Sorry lady but I don't agree with YOUR lifestyle and the way you're raising your kids but you didn't see me throwing that in your face and giving you s****y service. Keep your damn mouth shut and pray we never cross paths again.”

Hope the attention was worth it Ms. Morales.
