To those homes that showed their support for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, or the Black Lives Matter movement, a 39-year-old former driver for FedEx just boasted in a popular TikTok video about how he refused to deliver packages to customers who flew particular flags in their yards.
The video is filled with curses and other foul language that cannot be published, in which Paterno was recorded while he was in uniform inside a FedEx delivery truck; he posted it on September 16, 2021, to the Chinese-created social media platform.
“What’s up TikTok, just wanted to come on here and let all you know, if you don’t have a flag in front of your house, and if you have a Joe Biden, Kamala f***ing camel toe posted up in front of your house, Black Lives Matter — I will not deliver your s**t,” Paterno said.
The driver admitted that he refuses to perform his duties if he sees someone flying a flag he doesn’t like on their property. The driver had previously refused to serve customers who promoted their leftist agenda.
He continued, reiterating his opposition to Harris and Biden, “I will not deliver your s***, I will bring that back to the station, and I will keep doing that s***. Have a good day.”
Paterno drew the attention of FedEx leaders, who were outraged that he bragged about not doing his job, although Paterno was able to accumulate a lot of views thanks to the Chinese platform.
FedEx’s response to Paterno’s actions and the incident were discussed with TooFab by a spokeswoman for the company.
The spokesperson said, “We are appalled by the behavior depicted in this video, which does not reflect the views of FedEx, this individual is no longer providing service on behalf of the company.”
Explaining how he wanted to quit working for FedEx, Paterno even showed a text message that he sent on September 13, 2021, as he explained that he was not fired because he was already planning to leave his place of employment later this month, in retaliation Paterno once more turned the camera on himself to produce a new video for the Chinese social media site.
Some users of TikTok are warning Paterno to be cautious because law enforcement officials might soon approach him. Paterno may be charged with a crime despite thinking he was clever for not delivering items to their appropriate recipients. Obstructing the delivery of mail is a crime according to 18 US Code 1708.
“This man just admitted to withholding mail over political beliefs,” one person said and tagged the FBI.
“That’s literally a crime?” another posted.
Because many people depend on FedEx to deliver their medication and other essential goods, others noted that Paterno may have endangered the lives of clients.
One person wrote, “Some people get medicine delivered, including lifesaving medicine or medical devices. You could be hurting people.”
“I want a felony charge and jail time. People get medicine delivered to them. I want him arrested,” another added.
