Ryan later played along with that account, saying in a Facebook post that he regrets "failing to verify the original source of the story." What he doesn't seem to regret, however, is the fact that in stealing Maurice's story, he and Anderson used it to shit on everything he stands for today. They divorced it from the kindness he received and accepted. Their honesty problem isn't about attribution; it's about exploitation.
What kind of person is willing to spin lies to the public to justify taking food out of the mouths of hungry poor kids?
