In a series of videos posted to his Instagram Live feed late Friday night, Meek Mill captured an encounter with a man panhandling on the street. The man asked Meek and his crew for money, but was met with a physical challenge instead.
"Give me ten pushups, and I'm going to give you $20 right now," Meek says. "We ain't giving out no free money."
The man then actually agrees, although at some point the amount of pushups gets doubled, as we see Meek and company counting up to twenty. You can watch the whole encounter in the video above.
Reaction to the videos was immediate, and almost entirely negative. Many accused the Philly rapper of being callous.
Meek Mill has not yet responded to the backlash.
