Yet Another "Bias Crime" Story Turns Out To Be A Hoax Created By the "Victim"

A lesbian waitress claimed she hadn't been tipped by a couple after she served them dinner. She claimed they wrote on the receipt "WE HATE YOUR LIFESTYLE!!11!" or something.

Her story went viral.

First of all, wait -- this went viral? This was big news? Really? Some alleged bad behavior and rudeness is now a national news story?

Anyway, somehow she was able to start receiving donations, and she got 10,000 dollars' worth of them. One woman sent her $3,000.

For her travails.

Well, guess what: The couple accused of the Sexuality Crime (or whatever) realized she was talking about them, and objected-- noting they'd actually tipped her 20%, and, more importantly than that, they could prove it. Their Visa statement shows a payment including a tip.

And the handwriting doesn't match theirs, either.

Do watch the video to the point where the local news reporter asks the "victim" about these discrepancies, and she all but folds, offering nothing but stutters and shrugs.

Honest people, accused of lying and perpetrating a hoax, do not fold up all demurely like that. They get rather angry and hot about it. They don't just go, "Well, like, I just know, whatever."

Remember some time ago, when another Hate Crime Receipt became a big story? In that case, it was claimed that a couple had written on the receipt that they don't tip n***ers.

Yeah, that was fake too (Item 4).

How many times is the media going to fall for this?
