Yeah, but that's a really hateful 18 dollars! (Screengrab via NBC News 4 New York)

Well, this is disconcerting. It appears that when gay waitress Dayna Morales claimed a family left her a hateful, homophobic note on a restaurant receipt explaining that they were withholding her tip because they didn't agree with her lifestyle, she may have made the whole thing up.

A couple that claims to have been the diners who filled out that receipt came forward to NBC News 4 New York with their copy, revealing not only did they not write the hostile note, but they did in fact tip Morales, and they presented their credit card statement which reflects the full amount including tip.
