A 22-year-old New Jersey waitress and former Marine who alleged she was denied a tip because her customers didn’t approve of her lifestyle has been let go from the restaurant where she worked.

Following an internal investigation into the allegations, the Gallop Asian Bistro, located in Bridgewater, N.J., announced Dayna Morales’ termination on FacebookCNN reports.

Morales initially claimed that a family of four refused to leave a tip on a $93.55 bill, and that they wrote a hateful note on the receipt, which she posted on the “Have a Gay Day” Facebook page:

The story quickly gained traction across the web, sparking an outpouring of sympathy and cash donations.

But the family came forward with a copy of the receipt, which showed they left an $18 tip and did not write a hateful note, NBC 4 New York reports. The family also claimed they had a credit card statement to back up their claims.

In the meantime, Morales received at least $3,000 from supporters around the world, which she claimed she was donating to the Wounded Warrior Project. But the organization could not confirm that Morales made any donations, Bridgewater Patch reports.

A few donors have received refunds via PayPal — though they’re not sure who is issuing them. Michael Knote, founder of the Facebook page where Morales’ story was first posted, told Good Morning America that she has since taken down her own Facebook page and he hasn’t been able to reach her.

Oh, it's "allegedly" now, but not for the initial story? Your bias is showing!

I would far rather trust people and get burned once in a while than walk around suspicious of everyone all the time. What a dark, bleak life you must lead.

@BobFromDistrict9 @Openminded1 @LoraPfundheller Your comment shows your hate for cops, and your ignorance. I retired a police commander with a major Police dept. That is a one star chief . At that rank my salary was over 96,000 a year. Maybe if you where that smart and or successful you could do the same. There is 401 K's investments and a wife who also retired from civil service. Thus the fine wine, gourmet meals, two vacations, two kids graduated from college and a condo overlooking the beach. It is called smart investments and hard work moron.
