The Gallop Asian Bistro posted this note on Facebook on Saturday.
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.
Overall, this has been an unfortunate incident for Gallop Asian Bistro, our employees, and our customers. We are dedicated to providing excellent Asian cuisine and superior service. We have the utmost faith in our management and staff and we welcome the opportunity to serve our customers.
Morales made national news when she claimed to be a former Marine who had been subjected to an anti-gay nastygram on a receipt while working as a waitress at the bistro. Morales also accused the family of not leaving her a tip because she is gay. Donations poured into her PayPal account, and she claimed she was sending the donations to the Wounded Warriors project. The whole story was too good for many in the media to check.
Then it all started falling apart. The accused family came forward with strong evidence that they did leave a tip, and did not leave any note to Morales. Morales’ claim to be a former Marine turned out to omit the part where she dropped out of training. Wounded Warriors has no record of her donating to them.
Now, she’s out of a job. In Obama’s Obamacare economy.
