X Slams Indian-Origin Man In Canada For Availing 'Free Food'

A man of Indian descent residing in Canada faced backlash after a video surfaced showing him receiving free food from Canadian food banks designated for students. The video quickly spread across social media platforms, with some users criticizing Mehul Prajpati for accepting free food despite holding a well-paying job.

A social media user who shared the video alleged that Prajapati was employed at a renowned Canadian firm, TD Bank, where the average annual salary reportedly amounted to $98,000. In a subsequent post, the same user claimed that Prajapati had been terminated from his position at the firm due to the video.

However, members of Prajapati’s family refuted these claims, asserting that he was a student without any employment. They clarified that he had only completed an internship with the firm, which concluded in December of the previous year.

I can confirm that the individual mentioned in the video is no longer employed at TD.” Notably, the response did not specify that Prajapati was terminated as a result of the video.
