A special report on panhandlers ruffled a lot of feathers in Grand Rapids, Michigan. WZZM-TV did a story on people who beg for money on street corners. They learned that many of these people were not actually homeless. They say panhandlers make an average of $20 an hour in the city.
The story of one particular man caught the interest of a local radio show. "Rudy" holds a sign on a busy corner that says, "Homeless vet."
But, he admits to a reporter that he isn't actually a veteran.
Obviously, this angered a lot of viewers, particularly the hosts of the "Free Beer and Hot Wings" show. The show sent their producer to confront Rudy with a sign that read, "LIAR."
Rudy did not stick around. Watch the video below.
