As Twitchy reported, photos of spikes on sidewalks and ledges to deter the homeless from sleeping there caused a huge public backlash, with U.K. citizens calling the people behind the installations “disgusting” and “inhumane psychopaths.”

Other photos of “activists” pouring concrete over the spikes surfaced on Twitter days later, and today they show U.K. supermarket Tesco uninstalling the spikes entirely — a move journalist Ian Fraser attributed to “the power of Twitter.”

So, is the customary boycott off or on?
