Earlier this month, Dayna Morales became a very famous lesbian. She alleged that the couple she was serving at the restaurant she works at didn’t tip her and that it was because of her homosexuality.
She posted a photo to her Facebook profile of the restaurant’s copy of the receipt. The subtotal of the meal was $93.55; the space where the tip is usually written had a line drawn through it; and the left margin had a message, allegedly written by the customers: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.”
Gay victimhood is all the rage these days, so Morales decided to cash in, going to her local NBC affiliate to tell them her story to play up her victim status.
Morales became an instant charity case for homosexual sympathizers. Private donations came flooding her way, totaling upwards of $3,000.
Well, the whole thing was a sham.
From NBC 4 New York:
The husband and wife, who asked to remain anonymous, showed NBC 4 New York a receipt that appeared to be printed at the same minute, on the same date, for the same $93.55 total, except with an $18 tip.
The number written on the Total line of this customer copy was $111.55.
This copy proves nothing, of course, since both the tip and the total are handwritten, but the couple also showed NBC a copy of the credit-card statement, which shows their credit card was indeed charged $111.55 by the restaurant.
Morales still maintains her story, even in the face of proof that it was a lie. It’s easy to feel embarrassed for her, but she brought it upon herself.
It’s another case of the protected class faking discrimination or bigotry against them. Given how discriminated against they claim to be, you wouldn’t think it necessary to fake instances of discrimination.
Yet they do it anyway. I guess the warm fuzzies produced by public sympathy of romanticized victimhood is worth far more than the truth.
And those private donations to her, by the way? She says she plans to donate it all to Wounded Warrior Project. If that’s true, here’s hoping that she presents documentation to prove her donations, and, further, that she doesn’t forge that documentation, as she has proven herself all too willing to do.
