Yossi Gallo wanted to do something kind for a homeless man in need of a meal, but instead the two ended up being escorted out of a McDonald’s by police and the subjects of a video that has quickly gone viral. Gallo said he came across the homeless man near the fast-food restaurant in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and decided to invite him in to buy a warm meal. Gallo said as soon as the two got inside the restaurant, the woman working at the register told them that the homeless man would not be able to get any food. The employee claimed that the homeless man had been begging several people for food and money, and the restaurant’s staff then called the police.
… The video shows a police officer speaking to the homeless man and informing him that he would need to leave the McDonald’s and not return. Gallo jumped to the man’s defense, telling the officer that he was not begging for food and that Gallo offered on his own to buy the man a meal. Gallo then began to yell at the restaurant’s staff. As the argument on, the homeless man began to cry and tried to explain that he did not have any money to buy himself a meal.
