A man had backfired his good deed after the homeless man he bought fast food for decided to make him fat and told him to eat healthier food.
Toronto, Canada influencer Stuart Jeffrey shared a video on TikTok earlier this week, which has since been viewed more than two million times, explaining the encounter.
“I’m just back from … I can’t,” Jeffrey says before being overwhelmed with laughter. “It’s so terrible,” he manages after composing himself, but then starts giggling again.
Finally he pulls himself together and says, “I just got back from McDonald’s where I got a coffee and … a homeless man was sitting outside and he said, ‘Can you spare some change?’ and I thought, ‘I can’t, I don’t have any change, but if you want me to get you something from McDonald’s, I’ll be more than happy.
“So he said, ‘Can I have a coffee with two creams and a Big Mac?’ So I get his food and give it to him and I say ‘have a nice day’ and he says, ‘um … some advice in the future, I would give up McDonald’s. “

Jeffery then bursts out laughing again, but goes on to say, “The worst part was being ashamed of myself for a good deed.” Jeffrey subtitled the video: “No, I can’t re-record this, I laugh too much.”
You’d think an incident like this would be a rarity, but notably, the comments are filled with people who have had similar experiences.
One person replied, “Once I gave money to a homeless man at the intersection and he said I should clean my car.”
One woman who was heavily pregnant during her experience said: “After I gave him his meal, as I walk away he says, ‘Hey lady, you walk like a horse.'”
Actress Lauren Ash stepped in, saying, “I once gave a homeless man a 20 when I stopped at an intersection. He thanked him and said, ‘Don’t worry, not all men like thin women.’ “
Come on guys. Being a good Samaritan helps, but don’t always expect gratitude.
