Titus O’Neil may play a violent wrestler on TV, but he’s an empathetic superstar in person.The six-foot-four, 270-pound WWE wrestler recently tried to treat two homeless San Diego people to dinner at the Yard House restaurant.Surprisingly, the restaurant manager was reluctant to serve him and his two guests. So, according to O’Neil’s Instagram account, he gathered an even larger group of local homeless and needy folks the next day for lunch, and received a completely different response.
I'm gathering homeless people to take them out to eat at @yardhouse last night I did the same thing and the manager seemed distant in Serving the two last night so I said instead of just posting I'll gather more and eat lunch with them at that Resturant. They need to learn how to treat All humans as such. #ContentOfCharacter #AllLivesMatter
“I'm not a fan of injustice or prejudice of any sort towards anybody,” he wrote in a follow-up Instagram post. “There were many times that I had to go without as a youth because of a Lack of financial resources. 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! Thanks to those that accepted help and those that treated my guest at lunch.”
