A Detroit rapper known as Stizz was widely criticized for laughing as he filmed a McDonald's employee offering a homeless man some food then throwing water at the man. Stizz is trying to redeem himself and decided to do so in a bizarre manner.
Stizz and a friend took to the streets and gave out Gucci bags to homeless people. In the self-serving video, Steez tries to prove he's not a "bad guy" by showing off this kindness with this deed. One can only speculate why someone would think a homeless person needs a Gucci bag instead of food, water, shelter and a host of other things.
CBS Detroit spoke to homeless advocate Shere Dore, who expressed her disappointment in Steez's actions.
"A Gucci bag isn’t food, water, toiletries, mental help, housing, a warm blanket," Dore said. "Sadly, the purse will be received and sold for up to $50 then a day later, the homeless individual is right back where they were. I’m not looking for the guy to give designer bags that mean nothing to the homeless. I think his action defines just out of touch he is with the homeless.”
