FedEx is currently being canceled on social media after the company fired two delivery drivers who documented their encounter with a racist homeowner.
The incident took place this week in Leesburg, Georgia (yes, Georgia…AGAIN).
Apparently, when the delivery guys, Antonio and Felinzay, dropped off a package at a residence, the homeowner came out and began to curse and threaten them.
Back story..All we did just delivered his package mind you he was in the house it was quick stop as soon we were leaving he ran out his house cursing and threatening us and we just apologized but he kept escalating the situation then kept saying he would whoop our black asses.
That’s when we told his wife to get the police on us… that’s when he kept following us then he pulled out his phone to record us and start playing the victim role we drove off at first but they yelled: “f**k y’all.”
So we stop the truck and that’s when I started recording the incident.. after the video the police came and we told our side of the story & the man said to the police “they look like they would’ve broke into my house while my wife is there” the white dude was lying the whole time.
Mind y’all we go through this all the time he was the first to actually come at us crazy and all we doing is our job we Work 6 days out the week to deliver these packages during this coronavirus going on.
I really appreciate the job opportunity I had with FedEx… no hard feelings but I pray I can get back on my feet because I have a daughter now.
FedEx demanded that Antonio take down the video of the incident that was posted publicly, then they fired both men.
The FedEx Cancel Party was lit!
BYE FEDEX! ??
From this point forward, I’m pulling up on the post office…

FedEx has responded to the boycott:
Via NBC News:
In a statement late Wednesday, FedEx said that the drivers had been employed by an independent service provider. The company said it confirmed with the contractor that “the drivers are no longer providing service on behalf of FedEx Ground.”
FedEx said it takes any allegations of discrimination, retaliation or improper employment actions seriously and would “be conducting a thorough investigation into these claims.”
“While we conduct this investigation FedEx will provide employment for these drivers,” the company said.
We gone see…
well I hope they do not lose their job and receive a big pay raise. plus I hope fed ex goes after this home owner by putting in a criminal complaint. if these were postal service employees the post office would go after them.
“Cancelled” on social media, FedEx must be scared. I never use FedEx, because I rarely send packages, but I doubt I’ll be able to get Amazon or anyone I order from to stop using them. The protest is valid, but just making angry Tweets really means nothing. Just my thoughts.
