McDonald’s Employee Teases Homeless Man With Free Hamburger, Throws Water At Him (Video)

A cruel McDonald’s employee at one of the company’s Detroit locations is drawing the ire of the Internet after a video surfaced of him luring a homeless person with food only to throw water at him.

“Hey Willy, come here, do you want a sandwich,” the employee is heard saying. “Come on man, I’m going to give you a sandwich man, come on man.”

But when the homeless man goes up to the drive-thru window, the employee quickly puts the sandwich away and chucks a cup of water at him. The customer filming the video is heard laughing at the homeless man.

The video has been viewed more than 20,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube on Nov. 7, Mirror.co.uk reports. Many YouTube users expressed their outrage and called for McDonald’s to take action against the employee.

“Baits him over with food only to humiliate a man who already has nothing,” wrote one user. “If they don’t fire this morally bankrupt punk there’s something wrong.”

Another commenter expressed his concern for the homeless man’s health.

“This is Detroit in November,” he wrote. “You soak some poor homeless dude at night like that… hypothermia is a VERY real possibility if he has no access to an adequate heat source or shelter.”

“How much of an arsehole must you be to throw water in the face of someone who is old, hungry, cold and homeless,” questioned another.

McDonald’s has not released any official statements regarding the incident at this time.

    McDonald’s Corporation shouldn’t be at fault in this issue….what about putting this employee in a place for “rehabilitation”….don’t they “rehabilitate” people in prison ?

    Manager should call the employee back in the office. “You want a raise, huh? You want a bonus? Here’s your bonus!” and throw a pink slip in his face. “You’re fired!”
