Youtuber JoshPalerLin, in 2015, set up a social experiment that brought a moral lesson to its viewers: Don’t judge people by their looks and status.
At the beginning of the video, Lin shared that he had been talking to homeless people and found out that they are treated like they are not human beings. What he was about to do will break you.
Lin conducted his experiment on a couple of restaurants while dressed as a homeless person. Despite his insistence on eating inside both the restaurants, the staff kept on pushing him away. As expected, they doubted that he had the means to pay for the food. Lin then had no choice but to go away---until an hour later.
The youtuber then came back, now dressed in a neat, white shirt, and riding his batmobile-looking luxury car. Upon his arrival, the valet was seen quick to offer him assistance. Even the receptionists were nice to him and were eager to have him as guest.
However, upon closer look, the staff from the two restaurants recognized him. After asking for the menu and being accommodated by the employees, Lin decided to not dine at the two restaurants leaving the staff red-faced.
When he was about to leave, a staff member followed him obviously feeling sorry about what happened. Lin then told him: “We don’t want to be judged by people by the way we look, by status. everybody should be equal.”
