This Rude Diner Lashes Out at an Autistic Boy. How did the People React? Awesome!

This video was taken from an episode of What Would You Do?, a reality show aired by ABC that setup actors in public places with hidden cameras all around. The actors are instructed to provoke some sort of conflict or illegal scenarios, and viewers watch how the public reacts. Whether they interfere in the conflict to do the “right thing” or they simply walk away from the situation.

This particular scene was taken in a New Jersey diner where a group of actors appear in a scenario that depicts a family having lunch with their autistic child. Also, in the scenario is another actor playing the role of a bad-mannered diner who’s acting incredibly rude towards the mentally-impaired boy. He will start the conflict by lashing out at the child and his family while other diners are trying to eat.

How did the people react to the rude diner’s behavior?

Watch the heartwarming video:

When the actor starts castigating the kid and his parents, it was very heart-warming to see these compassionate strangers stepping up against the rude man to defend the embarrassed family. Ultimately, they were able to drive the bully away from the restaurant much to the delight of everyone.

After this scene, host John Quiñones came out to inform the diners that they’ve been on a hidden camera show. He interviewed some of the diners who made a significant stand against the bullying and asked them about their reactions when they stepped into the situation and did the right thing.

It’s amazing to know that in this kind of situations, there are still strangers out there who are willing to make a stand on what they believe is right. How about you? What would do you if you find yourself in a similar situation?
