WWE star Titus O’Neil was a good samaritan this weekend when he offered to take two homeless people to dinner at the Yard House in San Diego but was disappointed when employees at the restaurant were uncomfortable in the presence of O’Neil’s guests.
An upset O’Neil posted a video the next day saying he’d be back later with an entire group of homeless people because everyone needed to learn to treat each other with respect and equality.
I'm gathering homeless people to take them out to eat at @yardhouse last night I did the same thing and the manager seemed distant in Serving the two last night so I said instead of just posting I'll gather more and eat lunch with them at that Resturant. They need to learn how to treat All humans as such. #ContentOfCharacter #AllLivesMatter
O’Neil later posted another message — along with a picture of what looks like a much better experience — explaining why he felt compelled to do this.
Completely Different Response than Last night at the @YardHouse in San Diego I'm Not a Fan of Injustice or Prejudice of any sort towards Anybody. My Mother Raised Me with the Help of many others from all walks of life and there were many Times that I had to go without as a youth because of A Lack of Financial resources. People will categorize those that they can't relate to criticize those that stand up and speak out against what's wrong all until it directly affects them. I'm not the richest man in the world, but Money,Fame and Status have never held me Bondage because at the end of the day I've Gone without before and God has always provided for me. Now I have the opportunity to do the exact thing that others did for me when I had nothing to give them in return....LOVE OTHERS!!! Thanks to those that accepted Help&Those that Treated my guest at lunch as Humans,Patrons and Gods People. On to Ontario for @WWE Live tonight #WWEOntario
'Whatever you do for the least of these brothers & sisters of mine, you did for me' - Matthew 25:40 Thank you @usatoday @sbnation @bleacherreport and Every other Media outlet, Individual or group that shared this via Social Media&Other Various Platforms. My intent with act was Not a Mean spirited one towards @yardhouse in San Diego, but it was A Conscience Effort to relay a Bigger Message to the Masses that Look down on those that they don't Relate to. We're all one Situation away from having our lives turned upside down whether it be via Health issues, A loss of a loved one or Becoming Homeless We ALL Are People that can and will deal with struggles of all sorts and its up to those that understand this to continue to Bring Light to the Places and issues that are Deemed Dark. @wwe had Nothing to do with Why I did what I did so for those that want to throw shade towards me or @WWE It falls on deaf ears. Hopefully at some point you too will use your platform to Promote,Produce&Permit Positive Change in this world. @WWE Superstar is What I Do for A Living, It's NOT Who I AM For A Living. I Have A Family,Friends& A University @uflorida That Can Attest to the Man That I Am and As Long As God Is Pleased and My Family is Proud of The Man that I Am I'm Good. #ContentOfCharacter Drives Me Not The Media,Money or Fame...All of that is Superficial&Stereotypical, the Life that God allows me to Live is for One Purpose...His Glory!!Im Blessed to be a Blessing and So are you...Question is..Will you act on what you are Blessed to do? With Love, THANK YOU ALL!! #AllLivesMatter
Kudos to O’Neil for bringing some good into the world.
