Another mean receipt faked by a fame hungry server for attention

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Gay-Server-Tip-Lifestyle-Receipt-Discrepancy-233040811.html

The comments on one of the articles I read mentioned that the restaurant where she worked was going under, and the manager insisted on her doing all her interviews at the restaurant, with the name showing.  Of course, business got much better with pity customers coming in.

So far we've seen fake racism and fake gay bashing.  Anyone going to believe one of these stories again?  Anyone think the chances of this really happening just went up, since nobody will ever believe it?

  • I think it will end up being like the story of the boy who cried wolf. Eventually there will be no outrage because people will stop believing it, and some day it will happen for real (be it racism, or homophobia, or sexism, or some other -ism) but no one will believe it.

  • The sad part is that I'm sure it does happen but who's going to believe it. Just like the people who stand on the corner asking for money because they're homeless. Are they or are they not homeless? A few have ruined it for those truely in need.

  • Sadly, people will continue to believe these stories, and they will send scammers like this money, report it on the news, and spread it all over the internet. People are too eager to believe this kind of thing.

    Even more sad though is this kind of thing does more harm than good, and will likely give those who do hate based on race, sexual orientation, etc, even more 'reason' to hate. You know, like 'damned gays, knew they was nothin' but liars, even more reason to hate 'em' kinda thing.

  • Sadly, stuff like this makes me doubt even what many consider legitimate newsworthy events.
