The video left many tweeps unimpressed as the "cringeworthy" video it made its rounds. Here's what some of them had to say:
That video of Riky Rick telling that kid to take off his fake shoes is cringeworthy. Worse, you could see he felt like a boss doing it.

The Riky Rick video makes me sad because it's like a knock for people who aspire to be like him.

Riky getting the kid some Vans doesn't make his behavior acceptable either.There's no need to humiliate and ridicule a 3rd world child

Inoba ndinochuku, I don't find what Riky did amusing at all. How humiliating.

However, Riky has responded to the outrage of the whole altercation telling his followers to not "be sensitive".
Nkosi yam, the kid sum of u are saying was "humiliated" is saying "thank you" for being saved from "Falenciagas". Dont be sensitive bafethu. pic.twitter.com/sG4Gy0QELH
