NEW YORK (AP) — A man who drew online mockery after he was filmed shaving at his seat on a New Jersey Transit train said he was just trying to clean up after days spent in a homeless shelter.

Anthony Torres tells The Associated Press that the people judging him on social media don’t know the struggle he’s been through in his life.

He says he was heading back to family in New Jersey after spending a week at a shelter in New York City and didn’t want to show up looking scruffy, so out came the razor and shaving cream.

A fellow commuter on the Thursday evening train took video of Torres, showing him steadily swiping away at his lathered face and tossing the shaving cream from the razor onto the floor.
