What would you do if you saw a man walking the busy streets in your city, wearing a sign that said “F--- THE POOR”?
Your gut tells you to give the guy a piece of your mind regarding his offensive protest, but in reality, as this shocking video demonstrates, most of us are guilty of turning a blind eye … and ultimately “F---ing the poor.”
In a social experiment used to discover how much Londoners care about their less fortunate, a U.K. charity called The Philon Trust used the slogan “F--- THE POOR” to stir up reactions from people.
The charity hired a man to roam the city’s streets wearing a sandwich board that had the slogan boldly printed on the front and back. The entire experiment was filmed.
As the man wandered about, he yelled the slogan out loud and passed out pamphlets to people walking by.
Many took great offense to the message that this man was sending and voiced their opinions to him by calling him an idiot and disgusting.
