The video, which appears to have been deleted from the prankster’s YouTube channel, showed the creator approaching a man behind a Wendy’s to ask if he was hungry.
Tre went inside to get the homeless man the food he asked for and quickly brought it back outside.
Instead of giving it to him, however, Tre began eating the food. Many believe the video is staged but has received a fair bit of backlash since it began to go viral.
