Indeed, props to this man for doing the right thing!

In the comments section underneath Prestige Movers’ original post, numerous netizens touched on the issue of stereotypes regarding tattoos.

Netizens took notice of Jake’s tattoos and mentioned that the negative attitudes towards tattooed people are often wrong, saying “We’re all.. living in this judgemental society [who] often [see] inked people as the bad”. Many went on to say that people should not be so quick to jump to conclusions based on outward appearance.
