Woman taunts McDonald's employee for sleeping at work; turns out there's more to story

FAYETTE COUNTY, Ga. - A woman took a picture of a man sleeping in a Fayette County McDonald’s and posted a negative Facebook rant about him.

It turns out he is a homeless father who was resting between his shifts at the fast-food restaurant.

The community saw the woman’s post and is now helping this man by donating hotel rooms and clothing for him and his child.

Channel 2's Matt Johnson found the father, Simon Childs, and spoke to him Monday.

"I've been going through a hard time with my mom passing," he said.

The 21-year-old recently lost his mother and is raising his young son.

"Everything I do, I want to work for it," he said.

When he heard about the photo posted on Facebook, he was hurt.

"It kind of hurt to see my picture up there, you know? I thought it was something negative and nobody would care about it."

But he was positively shocked when he came back to work and saw piles of donated diapers for his son, supplies and clothes.

"They changed my life in a couple of days," he said.

Chefs Xavier and Theo Thomas own the Fusion Chefs Eatery right down Glynn Street South.

"It just touched our heart," Xavier Thomas said.

The Thomases' new restaurant afforded them an opportunity to reach out to Childs to let him borrow a car for job interviews.
