A photo of former US Vice President Joe Biden chatting with a homeless has sparked frenzy online.
Caleb Baca took the photo outside a movie theatre in Washington.
The image went viral after D.C. businessman Paul Equale shared it on Facebook.
In a post on the social media site, Equale wrote: "Character is about what you do when no one is watching."
In the photo, Biden can be seen handing the man a note. "I'm not exactly sure what he gave the homeless man, but he appeared to write something down on a piece of paper inside the movie theater, which he then proceeded to give the homeless man outside," Baca told FOX 5 in Washington.
Here are some of the reactions to the photo.
And this is why, despite his age, @JoeBiden would make a formidable candidate for Democrats. He would appeal to people who want to see a little genuine empathy and humanity brought back to the Oval Office. Besides, it’s not like Trump is a spring chicken with a head full of hair. https://t.co/IZwW40exWy— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) March 9, 2018
Vice President Joe Biden was spotted speaking with a homeless man after taking his granddaughter to the movies in Georgetown the other day. You can’t buy class, compassion and decency, it’s instilled within one’s soul. 💙 pic.twitter.com/MFs14I0sbN— Ricky Davila (@TheRickyDavila) March 11, 2018
When he thought no one was watching, Trump cheated on every one of his three wives.— Patrick S. Tomlinson (@stealthygeek) March 10, 2018

Look at how he treats those less fortunate, with no expectation of fanfare.
