Not too long ago, a Cambridge University student was filmed burning a £20 not in front of a homeless man and it elicited national outcry.

Rightly so, people were livid and called for the young man to see justice in the appropriate form.

More or less, that story just died down and pretty much everyone forgot about it, but more recently, something quite similar has happened and once again, the public are outraged.

At 2am on Sunday, Adam Thorpe, 29, was filmed throwing a kebab in a homeless man’s face after offering him £10.

The incident was filmed in Derby city centre and as you may expect, people have seen the video are disgusted with Thorpe, who shows a callous regard for the wellbeing of the homeless.

However the 29-year-old has responded, offering his apologies and trying to make amends with the victim…

What I did was bang out of order. I know that, but I don’t deserve the abuse I’m getting online. I’m no angel by any means, but I’m not someone who buys food just to throw at homeless people.

I felt so bad for what I did afterwards and I spent ages the next day and the day after trying to find him to say I was sorry.

I looked all around the centre of Derby trying to find him, but I couldn’t. If I thought that he was homeless, I never would have done it. I wish I could take it back.

I’ve had so many people try to point me out, but I don’t care about them. All I care about is finding the guy I did it to. It’s between me and him. What everyone is saying online, making stuff up about me, is wrong.

If I find him or if he comes forward, I will go into my savings and buy him whatever he wants.”

I mean, at least he’s sorry.

What I don’t understand is why do people keep filming themselves doing very stupid things? It doesn’t make any sense.

Obviously don’t do them, but they’re actively asking for trouble when they upload videos of them breaking the law or being bad people on the internet.
