“If Swiggy’s delivery boy stole a pair of shoes while delivering food at someone’s house. Don’t take any action against him. In fact buy him a new pair of shoes. He might be really in need. Be kind,” Sonu Sood wrote. He ended his post with a heart and another heart emoji.

What did X users say about Sonu Sood's tweet?

“Asking for no action is still okay, but don't justify it by giving nonsensical arguments. Poverty/need is no justification for stealing. There are millions of people, poorer than this delivery guy, who work hard and earn their livelihood. They don't steal. Justifying stealing is an insult to their hustle,” posted an X user.

“If a chain snatcher steals your gold chain, then don't take action against him. In fact, buy him a new gold chain. He might be really in need. Be kind,” sarcastically added another.

“Dishonesty must not be encouraged unless someone is in dire need of help,” joined a third.

“And what if he is a consistent thief and doing it regularly?” asked a fourth.

“So if I need anything, am I allowed to steal anything from anyone’s house? This is one of the weirdest posts I have ever read,” wrote a fifth.
