The post reads: To the people who are making fun of this whole situation, bear in mind that those people are just hungry and not thieves. You should look for the people that made them like that.


With Egypt’s economy going down the drain and the prices skyrocketing, some people are defending the act that happened with comments such as, “They’re not thieves, they’re just hungry.” While others completely disagreed and said, “People who say those people were just hungry don’t know what actual hungry people look like. The people you’re talking about would not even know what Carrefour or Pringles is.”


The post reads: Don’t defend these people that you call “hungry” because they aren’t Actual hungry people don’t even know places such as Carrefour. The hungry won’t care for Pringles or chocolate or cheese. The hungry will care for rice and bread. Whoever did this hideous act are just rubbish, and they are thieves.
