The West Coast ‘OG’ Says “Maybe They Should Wear A Vest With Amazon Delivery On It…..I Almost Shot a MF Creeping Up To My Crib Last Night,” On Twitter.
Ice T hit Twitter to deliver a message to Amazon about their delivery drivers. This comes after he almost shoots an Amazon delivery driver after mistaking him for a criminal.
Ice T says “Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries… Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it… I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night… Just saying,” the rapper/actor wrote.
The Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations & Customer Service at Amazon ‘Dave Clark’ makes light of the situation by replying back to Ice T with a bit of a sarcastic joke.
Dave Clark tweeted “Just sayin… thanks for the suggestion. We MF’ing love you and our drivers. Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map.”
I first heard this story while listening to Sway in the Morning on Shade 45 during a wake n bake session early this morning. I’m dead azz when I tell y’all the whole blunt went flying, I almost spit out my coffee when I heard them repeat Amazon’s reply to Ice T’s message on the radio. I can’t lie I was dying, it was hella funny how they said it on the air.
Later I began thinking “what type of reply is that from a major corporation to a customer?” IceT might be a celebrity but at the end of the day he was a customer with a serious complaint. Why would someone in Dave’s position dismiss a customer like that? Was he really trying to be funny or was he just replying like this because he isn’t taking Ice T seriously?
It didn’t stop there as people began to chime in about the some what shady reply from Dan Clark. I hope the higher up over at Amazon handle this asap, there is no reason to get this type of reply from someone in customer service who represents Amazon.
I understand where Ice T is coming from, after my short stint as an Amazon driver there were a few times I had to “creep” around several homes searching for their address or to reach the proper “zone” which is set by Amazon to drop off the package so you can move on to the next delivery.
I had my own fluorescent vest while out doing deliveries, but some people would still look at me crazy if I got too close to their own or their neighbors homes.
Amazon will send its drivers to a straight war zone; I did deliveries in some of the worst parts of Chicago. You know if Dan Clark, or other people in power at Amazon were going out making these deliveries Amazon would make sure to provide them with the proper gear to get the job done safely, thats my opinion.
