Summary
The project was launched, some media picked up the story, collectively over 2,000 shares from stories, and approximately 10,000 comments were posted. Comments were mostly negative. After reading many comments, 3 things were clear: many people have disdain for the homeless; they didn’t like the premise of this project; and overwhelmingly, they did not read more than just the title of the article before posting comments, as most questions and issues they posted were answered in the article, the press release, and the website.
