A video titled ‘Eksperimentas VERTIMAS’ has touched hearts worldwide, showing unsuspecting people being asked to translate a hate message for a random stranger.

People were originally invited to participate in a casting for an ad.

In advance, they did not know what the ad would be about and when they had arrived, they were told to wait a second in a waiting room.

A man sat there was part of the social experiment and asked each person to translate a nasty hate message he had received online.

Watch the reactions below.

The video was a video experiment conducted by ‘Lietuvos žmogaus teisių centras’ to promote a digital “handbook”.

It offers advice on how people can react to racial, homophobic, and other kinds of bullying and hate speech.
