A YouTuber attempted to shed light on how homeless people are treated by society by dressing up as one and trying to get a table at a restaurant.
Coby Persin, a 23-year-old vlogger famous for his social experiments and pranks, dressed up in rags and hoisted a black bin bag over his shoulder as he approached a waiter at an unnamed restaurant.
He asked if he could have a table for him and his friend Ronaldo.
The waiter gave him a frosty response:
I’m sorry. We’re not going to be able to do that sir.
Persin tried to give the waiter the benefit of the doubt, and requested a menu.
No. We can’t serve you, we’re not going to serve you today. I’m sorry about that.

Persin tries one last time – telling the waiter he can pay, that he has money.
The waiter was unmoved:
Can you please go away? Go eat at McDonald’s – some other options but not here.
‘Ronaldo’, Persin’s friend, then shows up at the restaurant driving a Rolls Royce with a suitcase full of money.
Persin parted with a warning to the waiter:
'I told you I had money. What's crazy is the way you judged people just by there appearance. I might buy this spot just I can fire you - you're lucky.'
