You took the words right out of my mouth! It's nothing more than a publicity stunt, and almost insulting to real homeless people that have no warm and comfy kingsize bed to return to once "the experiment" is over.

Just because it's charity doesn't mean you can't be critical about it. It's great he's raising awareness for the homeless but how he does it is imho a little insensitive not to say retarded.
