Man who filmed McDonald’s viral video speaks out !!

“I’ve been getting lots and lots of messages, people from all over the world, from Australia, from Brazil, from all over the world, messaging me not nice things,” said Yosi Gallo during an interview about his video of a Myrtle Beach police officer asking he and a homeless man to leave a local McDonald’s after reports of the homeless man trespassing.

 

Homeless man booted from McDonald’s after being bought food:

In the video, an officer is seen telling the homeless man, later identified by the officer as James Davis, after he finished eating, that he needed to exit the building and was not allowed to return because he had been begging inside the restaurant.

Gallo said: “He didn’t ask me for food. I saw him across the street and I brought him over here.”

The officer gathered Davis’ information, said he could no longer visit the restaurant, and asked him to leave.

“I have a place in my heart for homeless people and people in need, I think that a lot of my blessings in life with things that I was successful with, I think that comes from helping people because I love to give, I love to help others,” Gallo told Myrtle Beach Online in the aftermath of the incident.

Hundreds of internet users gave the McDonald’s at 2200 N. Kings Highway the lowest score possible on the Yelp restaurant rating website, lowering the restaurant’s score to one star out of five and leaving comments condemning their staff’s behavior toward Gallo. Other McDonald’s in the area have 2-3 stars based on several dozen reviews.
