That people can get 14k over a pitcher of ice water is what blows my mind.
Lesson: be a victim and you can get money too.
Blasey Ford has over a million already I believe.
(that's kind of unbelievable too actually)

That was rude, disrespectful and wrong period. He should have called the cops.

He should be fired, and so should the employee filming it.

I hope that man lawyers up

He did the dude a solid by not calling the cops, it's obvious they've had this discussion before between the two of them, and the usage of the n word wasn't presented in any sort of attacking manner, he called him "my n" same as he would have anyone he was conversationally talking to


The real question is, if the homeless person were black, would this same manager pouring water on him?

The manager was a donuthead and deserved to get fired.

But seeing as how the other employee was set and ready to film it.

I’m sure it was one of those scenarios where idiot number one comes up with a idea for a joke .

Then idiot number one and idiot number two snicker, giggle and chuckle about how funny It will be on YouTube.

They continue egging each other on until the second the water hits that guys head.

It is at that moment they realize only two idiots could come up with a stupid joke like that .

So pretty much the joke was hilarious until it wasn’t.

A black guy calling a white guy the N word doesn't at all bother me. In fact, it's stupid and doesn't make any sense. If the racial roles were reverses of course they would be outrage because it's obvious.

Making this a racial issue is stupid, which is obvious.

What should outrage, or at least concern people, is that people are living on the streets in the richest nation in the world. But sure, waste your time on a non issue you are trying to make racial. That'll solve everything!

Even if the racial roles were reversed, outrage over it would be stupid and make no sense. It's a word, whoopity damn doo.

It's not racial. Though, it was not nice either, likely ruined the man's phone which he may not be able to replace. Perhaps he saved the man cops taking it into their own hands. It's that the man was continually bothering the store in the employees eyes. I've seen similar videos and cops do escort people out, sometimes unfairly and or as the store may actually be or seem.

Sensitivity training maybe? Depends on if the guy is disabled for example. I believe that is where the law may dictate what happens as well as the company's reaction, lawyers, more.

He didnt do him a favor at all. Calling the police would have got him taken to a homeless shelter because the police brought him he wouldn't get turned away which often happens. So he would have had a roof over his head and a meal if the manager just called the police.

His actions were to the point of being cruel he had asked him to leave before and wanted to do something to hurt him. He believes he fell asleep on purpose in truth he was warm and you dont get much sleep on the streets. Your cold you have to worry about people taking what ever you may have. And to make it worse odds are good that sleeping in the wrong place will get you hurt.

This man has no business in customer service

if they put water in balloons it could have taken a whole different road.

Cruelty is indefensible. Period. Full stop.

If a business needs to resort to cruelty to manage a homeless situation it speaks loudly enough to their character that id choose a different business in the future.

The worst part is the homeless man showed character. He was polite when abused.

If I was a franchise owners, I'd be happy with this man as the manager of my franchise.


What would you name your franchise?

It was, quite simply, cruel and unnecessary, and I'd have fired the two jerks, as well.

Call the cops, the cops show up trespass the guy, life goes on.

I've done it any number of times. Or, I nudged the guy/guys and told them, hey I can't have you sleeping in front of the store. Polite, yet firm. There was no call, at all, to do the water dumping.

He's only a homeless derelict, no one gonna care if we're cruel to him. Seems they were wrong.

This go-fund me seems a bit more palatable then some others I've heard about lately...hopefully it'll be used to get a new start.

As I understand it, the man is schizophrenic. I doubt there will be much "new start" for him short of another round of inpatient treatment.

THe most painful part of this story to me was that he was just trying to charge his phone a bit so he could make his nightly call to his mother.
