A viral video from Buckeye, Ariz., shows a man in his truck berating a family in line for a food drive, yelling at them to “get a f—king job.”
The video, obtained and first reported by local CBS News affiliate Arizona’s Family, shows a man in a white truck shaming the family while they waited in their car on Thursday for food offered by a local church’s food drive.
The family, which asked the outlet to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation, says the man accused them of not needing the free food and yelled at them in front of their four young children.
The parents said they’ve been struggling like many families during the coronavirus pandemic.
“He looked at my son and told him that his parents were pathetic and couldn’t afford to feed him. At that point, all my manners went out the window,” one of the parents told Arizona’s Family.
Arizona’s Family said it also identified and spoke to the man in the truck who yelled at the family, and he told the outlet he stands by what he said, adding: “Those people need to go to work. They should be ashamed of themselves.”
