Another wrote: ‘What the hell. He is an old man. It’s just toilet papers! Dragging on the floor and using their foot! Disgusting.’
While one woman added: ‘What happened? How can they treat a human being like that? How dare they.
‘Where is the police? It’s horrible and it makes me feel that we are monsters as humans.
‘Even in the case that he stole something they should never treat him like that. Never! I just don’t understand how some people can laugh with this.’
Morrisons and the Metropolitan Police have been contacted for comment.
