  • Hope you enjoyed your meal, I'll take this whenever you're ready.

  • Your ring is just so beautiful, I've been admiring it this whole time.

  • Thank you. Your husband has great taste.

  • Oh! It's my wife actually, I'm so lucky to have her in my life.

  • Wife?

  • It's a scenario ripped right from the headlines,

  • at a restaurant in Illinois, a couple refused to tip their waitress,

  • simply because she's a lesbian.

  • They leave her a note saying:

  • 'Can't tip someone who doesn't love Jesus! Bad tattoo.'

  • And that tattoo; an equality sign in rainbow stripes on the waitress' arm.

  • Well, she's not getting any extra money out of us.

  • If you overheard this couple,

  • Marriage is heterosexual by definition.

  • skip out on tipping their waitress, simply because she's gay;

  • It even says so in the bible.

  • what would you do?

  • Today, our hidden cameras are rolling at

  • the Daily Planet, New York, and instead of a tattoo,

  • our actress Leah will be wearing this pin, promoting LGBT pride,

  • which hits close to home. 'You may now seal your vows with a kiss.'

  • She's happily married to her wife, Stacy.

  • Alright guys, hi, I have this for you

  • I'll get it when you're ready. (Couple: Thank you so much.) You're welcome.

  • Your ring is so pretty, beautiful. Thank you

  • What does your husband do?

  • Oh, my wife's an accountant.

  • You... you're married to a woman.

  • Yeah! I have a picture if you want to see.

  • No no, actually I don't want...

  • You're a lesbian?

  • Yeah.

  • Right away, our couple's words

  • draw in disapproving looks.

  • Is that what that pin...

  • Isn't it gay rights...thing?

  • All three women are listening.

  • This one in particular. She's jumping in... watch out.

  • Excuse me?

  • You don't need to be having this conversation with her right now.

  • What she chooses to do with her life is her life...

  • Are you hearing what she's saying?

  • She's a lesbian.

  • You know that's a sin? We're very religious.

  • Are we supposed to support this? Are we supposed to give her a tip?

  • Is she asking me for a tip?

  • I can't believe they hire people like that here.

  • I can't believe they hire people like this here.

  • She then suggests to our waitress to just walk away.

  • Thank you.

  • And this woman...

  • You don't agree to this, do you?

  • With the way we feel, right?

  • She quickly shuts down our couple.

  • Okay, let's go. This is the world we live in.

  • Don't leave a penny more.

  • After our couple storms off,

  • we send our waitress back in.

  • Thank you.

  • And these two customers rally together to show their support.

  • That show?

  • Alright, let's go and break this one, alright.

  • Well, in this case it certainly is.

  • Time to say, hello.

  • Hi there, how are you?

  • Oh my god.

  • It's 'What Would You Do?'.

  • It's a show, I said it was!

  • I watch this show all the time, I'm literally shaking.

  • You were very upset.

  • I was very upset. Nobody deserves to be treated that way, regardless of how they choose to be.

  • Your message to people who believe what they believe?

  • Don't judge. We need to be more openly accepting of people.

  • Others serve criticism, with a strong dose of sarcasm.

  • We'll pay for the food but we're not giving her a tip.

  • But some people see eye to eye with the couple!

  • But it's wrong.

  • She's so pretty, I didn't even think she was a lesbian.

  • That's a sin.

  • We roll again, and this time our husband writes a message on the bill, just like those diners did in Illinois.

  • I'm writing: 'We don't tip sinners.'

  • That'll be her tip.

  • Our angry and frustrated wife then turns to these customers for reassurance.

  • I mean, would you tip her?

  • We're not going to give her money for her life.

  • But, once again, no tip from our disgusted duo.

  • You guys can tip her.

  • Our waitress comes back in to grab the cheque.

  • What?

  • Yeah... did they tell you?

  • Really?

  • We roll one last time.

  • Is this okay to take?

  • No, no. I haven't done it yet.

  • But understand, don't be looking for a tip in here.

  • There won't be one.

  • Immediately, this woman jumps right out of her seat.

  • God has judged her, it's in the bible.

  • She's pushing her agenda with that pin on her.

  • Why are you defending her? Why are you defending this lesbian?

  • Here we go. Here we go. Here we go.

  • We'll pay for our meal, but we're not leaving a dime, a tip.

  • I'm not supporting that lifestyle.

  • As things get more heated,

  • Such a shame. I'm disgusted.

  • these women try to cool things down.

  • Thank you for saying something.

  • Strangers standing up for this victim of bullying, that seems to be the special of the day here.

  • Hi Sir, how are you doing?

  • This is What Would You Do, I'm John Quinoñes.

  • You were not about to stand for it.

  • No. Bottom line, no.

  • I was ready to let 'em have it. You've got to respect people's feelings and their lifestyle. That's just the way it should be.

  • What did you think?

  • I was very upset.

  • It's just, she reacts more externally, and I'm more in here shaking.

  • And in the end, my first thing was to go hug her.

  • Love is love, and I just can't - I just couldn't stand for it.

  • And you know what? It's programs like yours that teach people to stand up in these types of things.

  • What do you think of the reactions?

  • I mean just to have people - she literally stood up

  • It's nice to see that other people, even if they don't feel the same way, you know, that they support you.

  • And it's real for a lot of people, in a lot of different ways. Not just gay people, but people get discriminated against all the time so

  • it's real.

Hope you enjoyed your meal, I'll take this whenever you're ready.
