“She made the story up about being assaulted by a male subject at the bar and punched herself in the eye because she wanted to raise awareness about the social hardships of people in the LGBTQ+ community.”
After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn't write any such note. They also provided a document they said was a Visa bill, which appears to indicate their card was charged for the meal plus the tip, for a total of $111.55. The couple told NBC 4 New York that they believed their receipt was used for a hoax.
State Representative Ellie Hill, D-Missoula, seized upon the attack to suggest sexual orientation be added to Montana’s hate crimes law, vowing to introduce the bill in January. “What occurred over the weekend in Missoula evidences” the need for such a law, she said.

In November, a Brown County church that recognizes same-sex marriage was vandalized with hate-filled graffiti, including an anti-gay slur, a swastika and the words "Heil Trump." The incident, which happened right after President Donald Trump was elected, generated media attention, and fear in the community and at St. David's Episcopal Church in Bean Blossom.
Brown County Prosecutor Ted Adams on Wednesday filed a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief against George Nathaniel "Nathan" Stang, 26, of Bloomington, accusing him of vandalizing the church. Stang though, is a gay man himself, he told IndyStar. He said he did not vandalize the church out of hate, but rather, out of a misguided attempt to spur people to action after the election left him afraid for his future.

UC Santa Barbara Morgan Triplett, 20, claimed she was violently raped at UC Santa Cruz while visiting the campus for a Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender academic conference. News of the rape provoked fear across the campus. But police now say they believe Triplett staged the rape by hiring a man on Craigslist to beat her. She paid him with sex: Triplett took out two ads on Craigslist, one asking for someone to shoot her in the shoulder and the other asking to be beaten in return for sex. “No charges would be filed,” the ads said, according to Schonfield. UCSC police found the ads during an intensive investigation that started President’s Day weekend, when the rape report terrified the campus.

Matney told campus police a man branded his wrist at 3 a.m. April 4 on the footbridge outside of Craige Residence Hall. But the injury was self-inflicted, his father said. “A friend saw the wound, and he was embarrassed to say it was self-inflicted. He made up something on the spot, thought that would be the end of it,” said David Matney III after consulting his son. But after learning that the reported assailant called him a “f—-ing fag,” friends said they believed Quinn Matney, who is gay, was the victim of a hate crime. So they pushed him to report the incident, his father said. “He did not know how to stop the ball once it started rolling,” David Matney said.

Now Pennell has been expelled from the university and faces numerous criminal charges that she faked the notes, The Hartford Courant reported.
