December 25, 2014 Reply Honky Tonk That homeless man video is fake. It's staged. December 25, 2014 Reply Dardania Lion You might think that only bad people get homeless but that is not true. I know a friend of my father who had a very good life. He had a wife, house and a very good car. I think it was Audi A8. One day he saw his wife cheat on him with a guy in a shop she worked with. He wanted to kick her out but she was bregnant. Not sure if it was his child. Then he left her and became homeless. He lived on the street for a year where no one use to care for him. Now, a month ago he got his life back on his hand and makes around $35.000 a month by collecting metal and selling it. Trust me some homeless people are pushed into it not that they want to.

December 26, 2014 Reply Fooly's Mind Imagine living on the street. Having no job to pay for medical care, to pay for a roof over your head, to buy food. You don't even have access to a shower or clothes washer to look good for a job interview. I can't blame any man or woman who would want a six pack of beer in that situation to forget just how shitty their life is and how so many people who have so much care so little for their fellow man. It wasn't until I started working and making money of my own that I realized just how hard it is to not only earn a living wage, but just stick to a job that doesn't pay a living wage and keep the motivation up. It wasn't until then that I began to have sympathy for the homeless, and understood why some choose to fill their life with alcohol or drugs. While not the smart choice, I understand it and don't blame them for it.

January 2, 2015 Reply David Ball It's FAKE! Every news station reported how it is all made up. The guys even got in a car and drove to the liquor store. I will never watch one of this guys videos again! The worse thing about this is that people have donated over $130,000 to help this guy who has money already! It is nothing more than a scam.

January 19, 2018 Reply Stony Brook who was surprised? May 5, 2018 Reply ja da You just got pranked. Here is $100. I want you to pretend you do not notice us filming you. I want you to walk into this liquor store that says quite clearly above the door "Liquor", opposed to all the other corner stores in the area you had to pass to get to this one and come out with black plastic bags that could only mean one thing, even though you HAVE your own reusable bag and in fact put the black plastic bags into said reusable bag after the fact. This way the audience has the impression that we are catching you in the act of buying liquor which is what most of us believe the typical homeless man does with money that is donated to them. And then there will be this real gut wrenching twist at the end and people will laugh, they will cry, they will cheer and look like total suckers. Ok now here is the $100… July 22, 2018 Reply Jordan Parks This is fake and that dude is a paid actor.
