Amazon employee fired after complaining on TikTok

He’s no longer at the prime of his career — because he didn’t want to do the heavy lifting.

A seven-year Amazon employee claimed he was axed because he griped about having to pick up customers’ weighty orders in videos posted online.

TikToker @thatamazonguyy, who posted behind-the-scenes videos about working at Amazon, revealed to his 35,800 followers last week that the retail giant canned him because of his complaints.

“Hi guys, I have some bad news. Uh, Amazon done fired my dumba–. Seven long years down the drain just like that,” said the TikToker, whose first name is Kendall, and calls himself “Amazon King” on the social media platform.

“Long story short, I made a video about four weeks ago where I told people to stop buying heavy items from Amazon because, as an Amazon worker, I’m tired of lifting heavy items.”

He went on to explain that although a majority of viewers found the humor in the post, others, such as senior citizens weren’t laughing.

“Most people took it as a joke, especially if you work at Amazon, you knew that I was kind of overexaggerating … but a lot of people were offended by my video,” he said.

Kendall also apologized, stating that his intentions were not to cause any harm.

“If you were offended by that video, I am sorry. I never meant to offend anyone or discriminate against anyone. I just wanted to make a funny video,” he said. “I’m not just saying that. I already lost my job and am ineligible for rehire, so please forgive me.”

In the Dec. 6 video in question — ‘Stop Buying Heavy Items at Amazon” — Kendall, a trainer at Amazon, explains he took on an extra shift, and was given the job of picker at its warehouse.

“Tell me why every other item I picked was either Fiji water or f—–g dog food?” he asked his followers.

“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but stop buying water at Amazon,” he pleaded.

“Are you telling me you’re out of water, you go on Amazon, and you wait two to three business days to get your f—–g water, bro? What are you drinking in the meantime? Take your lazy a– to the store and buy water there like normal people do.”

He also called for empathy for employees such as “the 50-year-old lady who has to grab the dog food from the top shelf” and joked about what he would do in retaliation against inconsiderate customers.

“The next time I’m picking and I see some water, I’m going to replace your Fiji water with Aquafina,” he said.

The former Amazonian asked his followers for donations. thatamazonguyy/Tiktok

“If you’re buying dog food, I’m gonna replace half of the dog food with cat food … See how your dog likes that, straight bulls–t.”

Kendall, who now refers to himself as “Your favorite ex-Amazonian” on TikTok, used the platform to post videos while at work, such as “Day in the life of a tier one Amazon associate,” “Parking at Amazon,” “Me walking in late on my overtime day” and “When you pick up a 12 hour OT shift.”

The Post has reached out to Amazon for comment.
