WWE wrestler Titus O’Neil treated a group of homeless people to lunch at a restaurant in San Diego over the weekend and documented the experience on social media.
On Saturday, O’Neil posted a picture on Instagram saying he had taken two homeless people to the Yard House restaurant for dinner the previous night. But he said the restaurant staff “seemed distant in serving the two.”
“They need to learn how to treat all humans as such. #ContentOfCharacter #AllLivesMatter,” O’Neil captioned the photo.
Later Saturday, O’Neil returned to Instagram to post another photo, this time of a larger group of homeless people enjoying lunch at the same Yard House.
“Completely different response than last night,” the wrestler said.
“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!!!” O’Neil added.
In a statement, restaurant spokesman Hunter Robinson said he was “pleased” that O’Neil gave the Yard House another shot at hosting the homeless for a meal.
“We regret that Mr. O’Neil felt his guests didn’t receive the type of hospitality and attentive service we strive to provide for all our guests when they visited our restaurant initially,” Robinson said, according to NBC San Diego. “We appreciate that he was willing to give our team a second chance, and we’re pleased to hear that everyone enjoyed their experience.”
O’Neil’s Instagram posts had gathered more than 10,000 “likes” as of Tuesday morning.
