Actor Michael Rapaport returned to his neighborhood Rite Aid on Sunday only to find shelves empty just days after he saw a brazen thief calmly walk out of the store with two shopping bags full of stolen goods.
‘Back in my Rite Aid,’ he said in a video posted to his Instagram on Sunday. ‘And there’s nothing to steal because this Rite Aid like so many other Rite Aids is closing down because everybody stole everything. And the workers here don’t know if they’re getting jobs.
‘Congratulations, losers,’ the 51-year-old actor concluded in the video, which had already garnered 20,570 views in just one hour.
It came nearly one week after the actor, known for his work on Boston Public, captured on video a bold thief sauntering out of the store, at 80th Street and 2nd Avenue, with two shopping bags full of stolen goods.
