A New Jersey waitress let go over an anti-gay receipt case that turned out to be a hoax has allegedly been fired this week. The lesbian waitress was let go from the New Jersey restaurant, Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, following reports that a homophobic message she received was faked, the Huffington Post reveals this Monday, Dec. 9, 2013.
The New Jersey waitress let go was seemingly fired because the (lack of a) tip she received — the woman said she was denied a formal tip because she is a lesbian, according to the text on the note — turned out to be only a hoax. The alleged note for the server, Dayna Morales, was from an initially nice family that criticized her “homosexual lifestyle.”
Here’s an unofficial statement regarding the Dayna Morales’ firing from a Facebook post:
“The Gallop Asian Bistro has taken seriously the allegations made by Ms. Dayna Morales, and those made against her. Despite news reports to the contrary, this is not a simple, straight-forward matter and we have conducted our own internal investigation. The results of that investigation are inconclusive as to exactly what happened between Ms. Morales and the customers that night. However, in light of the investigation and recent events, both Ms. Morales and Gallop Asian Bistro have made a joint decision that Ms. Morales will no longer continue her employment at our restaurant. We wish her well in the future.”
It was added that the New Jersey waitress let go incident was an “unfortunate” one.
Almost overnight, Morales’ anti-gay story went absolutely viral online following the apparent receipt being uploaded to Facebook early last month. The family soon met with the media, adding that they did not write anything about the lesbian server’s “lifestyle,” and even left her a 20% tip, giving their credit card statement as proof of the matter.
An investigation was soon launched into the apparent hoax, and Morales has since been fired from the Gallop Asian Bistro restaurant due to the ordeal, concluded the report.
