Electra Shocks Freezing Hippie

3/7/2007 2:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Carmen Electra gave a panhandler some cash -- and nearly a heart attack.

Perhaps Carmen felt sorry for the young man, who was sitting on the ice cold concrete on 57th Street in Manhattan as the temperature neared zero degrees.

She certainly sympathized with his coldness -- she was wearing knee-length leggings and a rather thin jacket on the coldest day of the year! Girl, this ain't L.A.! Put on some clothes!

I really wish we could see more celebs doing things like this...they have plenty of money to shop for baby clothes when they aren't even pregnant or involved with anyone and waste so much money on things I would love to see them doing this. I still think Angelina and Brad are AWESOME too for doing so much for the world and the U.S. I do wish they would do more in the U.S. than outside of it though!

That dude is a total fraud. I pass him everyday on my way to work. When he can't make it, he has a girl take his spot and she uses the same cardboard sign.

Also, I highly doubt he's a fraud. He is sitting in zero degree weather for God's sake.

What's with all you nutjobs thinking she's doing something wonderful? She ain't a saint, she's a skank who's famous for being naked! She did this because there was a camera on her, not because she gives a damn. Remember when Paris Hilton gave the black squeegie guy a hundred bucks? We all know what a kind-hearted, compassionate person she is. And PS, I don't see Carmen with an actual bil in her hand, maybe a dime, if that.

And #7's absolutely right - all these sidewalk hustlers are con artitsts - there's a guy in Philly been out on the Clothespin steps over 10 years now - funny how when winter rolls around he always has a nice, expensive winter coat to keep him warm.....

#9 - His sign claims that he's trying to raise money to get back home. Over the past year and especially in light of the generous donations of half-naked celebrities, you'd think he'd have raised enough cash for a bus ticket.

And he's usually in the subway tunnel under Bryant Park. A lot of these folks come out in the cold because they're relying on your sympathy. It's probably been a very lucrative week for him.

Incidentally, what would my motivation be for saying he's a fraud if I didn't have some reason for believing so. I have nothing better to do than disparage the homeless? Then again, I'm spending an inordinate amount of time on this site today...

The money in that picture looks photo shopped. On, she doesn't have any money in her hand.
