New Jersey waitress let go: Dayna Morales' lies over anti-gay note costs her job

A New Jersey waitress was let go after it was determined she had lied about a homophobic note left on a receipt at her job. Dayna Morales' initial story went viral, but it didn't take long for the family involved to step up and prove she was lying. Now Morales and the Gallop Asian Bistro have made a “joint decision” that she'll no longer work there. NBC New York shared the details on Dec. 9.

Dayna Morales initially seemed a sympathetic figure to many. She posted a photo on Facebook of a receipt she had from her shift at the restaurant. She supposedly had served a family at the Gallop Asian Bistro and she had gotten stiffed on the tip. The receipt showed a note that said, “I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.” Morales is gay.

Donations poured in for the veteran, and she said she was going to donate the money to the Wounded Warriors Project. Within days, the family involved came forth. They said did they tip her fairly well and did not leave a note, and they had their credit card statement to back it up.

Soon media learned that Dayna Morales had a history of lying about situtations, and the restaurant launched an investigation. Now the New Jersey waitress was let go. The restaurant posted the update on their Facebook page, adding that “This has been an unfortunate incident for Gallop Asian Bistro, our employees, and our customers.”

Though the New Jersey waitress was let go from her job, she still isn't coming entiring clean. She seems to maintain she was telling the truth, but she has been refunding donations to those who had used PayPal for their contributions.
