UPDATED: A New Jersey family claiming to be the patrons Morales accused of homophobia are contesting her story. Read Salon's update here.


A few weeks after two homophobic jerks in Kansas refused to tip their server because he was gay, another homophobic jerk in New Jersey has done the same thing, leaving her waiter a hateful little note in place of gratuity.

On a bill of almost $100, the woman wrote, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and the way you live your life."

Former Marine and waiter Dayna Morales sent an image of the note to Have a Gay Day, where she wrote she was "thoroughly offended made pissed off and hurt that this is what her kids will grow up learning."

"Sorry lady but I don’t agree with your lifestyle and the way you’re raising your kids but you didn’t see me throwing that in your face and giving you shitty service,” she added.
