Sonu Sood's reaction

"If Swiggy’s delivery boy stole a pair of shoes while delivering food at someone’s house, don’t take any action against him. In fact, buy him a new pair of shoes. He might be really in need. Be kind," Sood wrote on X.

Netizens reaction

However, not everyone agreed with Sonu Sood's approach. Some users argue that stealing is wrong regardless of the circumstances. 

"Asking for no action is still okay, but don't justify it by giving nonsensical arguments. Poverty/Need is no justification for stealing. There are millions of people, poorer than this delivery guy, who work hard and earn their livelihood. They don't steal. Justifying stealing is an insult to their hustle," a user wrote.

Another user took a critical stance, writing, "If a chain snatcher steals your gold chain, then don't take action against him in fact, buy him a new gold chain. He might be really in need. Be kind."
