claimed a family wrote her a hateful note on a receipt, outrage ensued. "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle and how you live your life," read the note. Morales, who is gay, posted a photo of the receipt on Facebook. Morales went on news programs and showed off the receipt with the message. But now, the alleged customers have come forward saying they left no note and did leave the waitress a tip. The message on the tip reads in part, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I don't agree with your lifestyle." The family, which wished to remain anonymous, told NBC New York it left Morales a $18 tip. " The wife told NBC New York that she is left-handed and couldn't have made the slash in the tip section of the receipt. "We've never not left a tip when someone gave good service, and we would never leave a note like that," the wife told NBC New York. The husband said he didn't vote for Chris Christie because of the governor's lack of support for gay marriage. "Never would a message like that come from us," he said. Morales told NBC New York that she didn't receive a tip and repeated that the handwriting on the tip was not hers. The restaurant told NBC New York it is conducting an internal investigation into the incident.
