Are people more likely to help a homeless man who wants money for drugs and alcohol, or needs financial support for his family? The answer may shock you!
YouTube star Coby Persin did a social experiment where he dressed as a homeless man on the streets of NYC. He first posed with a sign that said "Homeless. Need money for weed, drugs, and alcohol." Then, he sat outside with a little girl and his sign read "Homeless single father. Need money for family."
Shockingly enough, hardly anyone gave money to Coby while he was with the little girl, but quite a few people wanted to help him buy drugs. Passerbys said things like, "Stay high, man" and "Make sure you get a big bottle." Wow!
The most shocking and heartwarming part of the entire video happens at the end. Check it out below, and grab a tissue – the emotions are real.
