The way this type of video works is that a person (the person doing the video) pretends that they are homeless or have not eaten or has some sort of desperate story and then begs for food or drink. If the person gives something to them, the big revile is that the person doing the video IS not broke and homeless and has lots of money so gives away money for people’s kindness.
The fruit vendor gave the Tik Tok guy some mango and sticky rice for FREE after the guy had said he had not eaten all day and had no money.
This type of video has been going on for a few years on social media and it’s a good way to increase likes and subscribers.
Is it a nice thing to do? Well, giving someone 2000 THB might not change their life and to be fair it’s cheaper than paying for online adverts so maybe it is a good thing to do.
I guess it must work as it made the local news.
