Rapper, Body Count frontman, Law & Order actor, and all-around icon Ice-T is now taking his talents to Amazon… sort of.
In a Tweet shared Tuesday, May 21, he told the story of a delivery that almost went way wrong. “I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night,” he admitted.
He’s suggesting Amazon do something about the lack of uniforms worn by the tons of drivers making deliveries. With a network of unmarked deliverymen making deliveries as a side hustle, it’s hard to tell who’s legit and who’s “creeping up to” your crib.
Amazon head of operations Dave Clark wrote back with a playful but less-than-favorable response to Ice-T’s suggestion.
“Just sayin…thanks for the suggestion. We MF’ing love you and our drivers,” he wrote in a Tweet playing off of Ice-T’s wording. Replies quickly bit back at the response, knocking him for his dismissal of what could be a serious issue.
“The feedback is if you don't want a MFer shot, he should have something on that says AMAZON on it” Twitter user @CarrieLGarner wrote after Ice-T received a canned reply from the Amazon support account.
All jokes aside, the problem has been compared to Uber where drivers are identified through a variety of methods. From letting users know the car’s license plate number to providing an Uber sticker to be placed on their car, there’s a lot less room for misidentification. All Ice-T is asking for is an Amazon T-Shirt, or something of the sort.
