Good Samaritan faces backlash for showing kind KFC gesture to homeless man

A content creator was accused of pulling a stunt on a homeless man when he shared his kind gesture on TikTok.

The man, who goes by the name 'Mr Jack', posted his encounter with a homeless man in Fairfield, Australia, after he reached out to offer him help and buying him a meal.

In his now-viral video, he said: "I saw this man again and I told him 'what do you want for lunch' and he said 'I want KFC with big drink'.

"I told him 'gimme one second and I will be back'."

He then heads to the nearest KFC restaurant and buys a meal with a bottle of Pepsi.

Jack said: "I was excited to see his reaction. I ran to him to see his reaction.

"He knew I was filming everything and he watched the video and said ‘that’s fine if you want to post it’. Look how happy he looks."

In his previous video, he filmed himself buying groceries in a supermarket for the homeless man and leaving the bag as a surprise while he was sleeping.

Jack's kind act was acknowledged by viewers but some suggested he should "do it from the heart" rather than on camera.

One said: "Seriously! Charity is not about receiving recognition from others."

"That is such an amazing thing you did, but don't post it on social media," a second commented.

A third added: "I understand your kind gesture but you don't need to prove to anyone that you are helping the homeless with your camera, do it from the heart."

Some defended Jack that his video could inspire other people to do the same.

"This is something wholesome to motivate others to share what they have!" a viewer penned and another said it's a "great reminder" for people to do the same.
