Guy Who Pranked Ben Simmons in Candy Store Said He Did It Because Simmons Wouldn’t Take Pictures With Kids

Cuz had Gerald Huston, the guy who pranked Ben Simmons in the candy store, on The Fanatic today to talk about the video:

Huston said he did it because Simmons punked some kids earlier who just wanted a picture with him. I have to side with Huston and the Cuz on this one. First, renting out a candy store for you to personally shop in is hilarious to me. It’s not Rolex. It’s not Gucci. It’s a candy store. How much time do you really need to pick out candy? Second, Ben didn’t have to take any pictures, but if he was smart he’d buy some kids a couple hundred bucks worth of candy, and now we’ve got an easy kind-hearted story that the Internet will run with. Slowly build that credibility back up. Instead he gets punked on camera because he is a punk.

(Editor’s note from Coggin: What’s worse, renting out an entire candy store or building a candy store in your house like Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey did back in the day?)
