This video was taken from an episode of What Would You Do?, a reality show aired by ABCthat 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 is a crucial element to be observed.
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?
