After A Woman Shamed A Homeless Dad For Napping In McDonald’s The Community Rallied To Support Him

Social media can bring out the worst in people, but it can also inspire strangers to be their best. This story starts out with an all too common random social media shaming, but it ends with even more random acts of kindness.

21-year-old Simon Childs was taking a break between shifts at the McDonald’s where he works in Fayette County, Georgia and resting on a bench when a woman snapped his photo. She shared the picture on Facebook along with a complaint.

“Just another reason for me to leave Fayetteville,” she wrote, noting that she complained to Childs’ coworkers about his nap.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, Childs recently lost his mother and has a newborn son he’s working to support.

“Everything I do, I want to work for it,” he told them in an interview. He also said he was “hurt” by the picture.“It kind of hurt to see my picture up there, you know? I thought it was something negative and nobody would care about it,” Childs said.

When news of Childs’ story started trickling out, the donations started pouring in. Diapers, clothing, shoes—even a car to borrow for job interviews donated by local business owners. Childs was floored by the generosity. “I didn’t think the community would even care enough to do that, but they care,” he said.

And Childs isn’t holding a grudge against the woman who inadvertently made him a local celebrity. “I’m not homeless, not now, thanks to her,” he said.

After WSB-TV broadcast their report on Childs, he’s received a brand new haircut and new job offers as well.
