Jeffery could barely speak through his chuckling, saying a man who appeared to be homeless asked him for spare change, which he didn’t have. He offered to buy him food instead.

When he returned with the man’s coffee and a Big Mac, the stranger gave him an unsolicited suggestion about his diet. 

‘I hand it to him and I’m like, “Have a great day,” and he goes, “Yeah, just in the future, a word of advice, I would lay off the McDonald’s,”‘ said Jeffery, who once again burst into laughter. 

‘And the worst part is I was fat-shamed for doing a good deed.’

Wild: Jeffery didn't have any money on him, so he offered to buy him food. When he gave the man his coffee and Big Mac, the stranger told him he should ' lay off the McDonald's'

‘I once gave a homeless man a 20 while stopped at an intersection,’ someone else shared. ‘He thanked me and said, “Don’t worry, not all men like skinny women…”‘

‘After I gave him his food, as I’m walking away, he says, “Hey Lady, you walk like a horse,”‘ she explained.
