LITHUANIA — A group in Lithuania conducted a social experiment in which a man asks strangers to translate a message that was sent to him on Facebook.

The man only speaks English, but the message is in Lithuanian. When he asks locals to translate it for him, they realize the man has received a hate message.

Many of them are left speechless and on the verge of tears.

Feeling a sudden need to protect a man they just met, many of the strangers refuse to translate the message.
