Waitress/Marine Follow-up

Another follow-up to a previously posted story last week. Dayna Morales is paying it forward after receiving tips from around the world in response to her venting online about the homophobia she experienced at work.

An openly gay waitress and marine who was stiffed on a tip because of her “lifestyle” has received an outpouring of support from the public since her story went viral. Now, she wants to pay it forward.

Dayna Morales, a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, N.J., made headlines last week when she posted her encounter with homophobia to the “Have A Gay Day” Facebook page. Instead of leaving a tip on a $93.55 bill, a family of diners ridiculed Morales and scrawled an anti-gay note on the receipt, that read: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life.”

She took to Facebook to air her grievances about such treatment, explaining, “I served in the Marines to keep ignorant people like them free.”
