A refugee from Afghanistan was recently blasted after he shared a picture of the ‘pathetic’ appearing free food rations from Fort Bliss.
Clearly, the image divided the internet as many accused him of being ungrateful, considering the fact that he was an evacuee who managed to pull through on one of the last flights as hundreds continue to remain stranded in Kabul today.
The picture was posted by 28-year-old Hamed Ahmadi who is now believed to be living in El Paso, Texas. But he did not appear to be a happy camper as he shared shocking images of the meager-looking foods rations that were given to him and other refugees at the camp.
Local media reports claim that Ahmadi was lucky to have escaped from Kabul, just a few days back and is now living in Texas at Fort Bliss, for the past 70 hours. For those who may not be aware, Fort Bliss has been in the eye of the media recently with many looking down upon it due to poor hygiene and food conditions.
But after the images were released, they quickly went viral on social media with many shocked at the appalling living conditions. At the same time, there were plenty who felt that the Afghan refugee did not even deserve this much, and should be returned back home on the next flight.
Others began trolling him for having the audacity to complain, adding how they would trade him for a service dog, any day. While some did give him praise for having the courage to post up images, there were also those who sent him prayers and love, hoping the refugees would be treated better in terms of foods supplies.
Some even went on to compare his meal with the popular ‘pathetic cheese sandwich’ that arose from the much-talked-about yet disastrous Fyre Festival.
