Photo Goes Viral of McDonalds Employee Helping Disabled Man Eat His Meal

A picture of a McDonald’s employee in Chicago helping an elderly disabled man all by himself cut and eat his meal has gone viral on social media.

The image, along with a description, was posted to Facebook Sept. 16 by user Destiny Carreno. Since then, it has been shared over 310,000 times on Facebook alone.

Carreno stated she was waiting in line at McDonald’s when a handicapped man wheeled himself to the cashier, identified as Kenny, and asked for help. Kenny, confused at first by the request, came out from behind the counter with gloves on, sat down next to the man and began to cut his food.

Seeing this today brought tears to my eyes! Compassion has NOT gone out of style.Today I made a quick stop at McDonald…

Carreno later added that she was brought to tears by Kenny’s compassion, saying in her post, “My heart was so appreciative for what he did. I couldn’t contain my emotions in the crowded restaurant.”
