Caught on camera!: Amazon delivery driver spits on a package
An Amazon delivery man was caught on camera spitting into his hand and wiping it on a customer’s package just outside of Los Angeles. Amazon says the employee no longer works for the company.
The incident happened on March 26, exactly a week after state Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a stay-at-home order for all of California. Luckily, the homeowners had a video on their front porch, which caught the entire thing.
Amazon denounced the behavior and said they are “aggressively investigating to understand what may have occurred in this situation. If it truly was a malicious act by the driver, we will be sure he is held accountable, up through and including law enforcement action.”
The owner of the home asked Amazon to test the former employee for COVID-19. He also said that Amazon apologized for the horrific experience and sent a $50 credit.
News quickly spread about the disgusting incident. A few people on Twitter were shocked by the cruelty and blatant act of violence during a pandemic.
@amazon thanks for firing that nasty man that spit in his hand and delivered that family package.. I feel he should be fined for trying to spread sickness to a whole healthy family smh 🤦🏽♀️

An Amazon delivery driver in California apparently spit on his hand and wiped it on a package as he dropped it off, as seen in security cam footage — this while the deadly coronavirus crisis grips the country. This is really dangerous.#COVID2019
