Fans praised Post Malone's authenticity, with many expressing surprise at his selfless gestures during concerts.
We all know that meeting our favorite star or celebrity is a pretty memorable moment. However, many people suggest that meeting someone you look up to in real life is the last thing you should do. Stars usually have a performative persona to maintain, but when you interact with them, you might figure out they are not going to fit the image you have created in your head and get your heart broken. However, this does not seem to apply to Post Malone fans for he does not seem to disappoint them and even exceeds their expectations.
The 28-year-old rapper knows just how to win his beloved fans' hearts and no it is not always through music. He had a meet-and-greet with fans from all walks of life as part of the promotion for his new album, "Austin." However, it was a small fan who received the grandest gesture from the singer, as Post Malone removed his shoes and gave them to the child. A viral video posted by u/Sufficient-Bug-9112 on Reddit shows the artist happily asking for the child's name and posing for a photo with him. Post Malone then asks politely if he wants anything signed. The rapper takes a knee and autographs the checkerboard Vans the boy is wearing while he looks down at his feet empty-handed. After praising him for his presence, Post Malone simply asks, "You want these?" before untying his sneakers, signing them and handing them to the boy without giving it a second thought.

Fans truly appreciate his gestures and down-to-earth attitude. "Post seems like a really genuinely nice dude from everything I've ever seen online. I hope he's continually blessed!" commented u/dreparks14. "Such a cool dude. I would honestly not feel like asking him anything because of how selfless he is," wrote u/Clear_Condition1388. "I mean, he seems like a nice guy, but God damn! The kid literally asked for the shoes off his feet right after he knelt down and signed both of the kids' shoes," added u/GastropodSoup.

While this may come as a surprise to many, Post Malone's followers are no strangers to his generosity. After attending his Tamba Bay event, an 11-year-old fan, Winter walked away with a $5,000 blue guitar that he uses with his autograph. Malone has previously given away shattered guitars to fans at previous gigs, but nothing like this, according to TMZ. Malone had the little girl pledge to treat the guitar with respect before handing it over.

Malone appears to be a generous giver of love and his admirers seem to appreciate his generosity. Jenn, Winter's mother, says that her child is a huge Malone fan, as is her other daughter, Brooklyn, to whom Malone gave away his socks. The family has now seen the fifth PM performance in Tampa. Winter doesn't know how to play the guitar, but the unusual present may entice and inspire her to learn. Winter intends to display it in a case on a wall in her room and will never sell it.
