A DoorDash delivery driver is being sought by the police in Brooklyn, New York after he made a video of himself contaminating a meal he delivered to a Brooklyn police officer. People should not hire small children to deliver their food.
In this case, the driver was delivering from Chipolte. The driver put a note in the contaminated food that read, “Hope that d-k taste good bitch!”.
The short video clip, posted to Facebook on Monday, shows the driver reaching into the open container of what appears to be a burrito bowl to bury the note under shredded cheese and lettuce.
“Ya kno I’m bout to violate the s–t out this order 61st precient [sic],” the video, posted by a user with the handle “So Certified,” was captioned.
The driver deleted his account but he had a lot to say before he did. The video was captioned, “Ya kno I’m bout to violate the s–t out this order 61st precient [sic].”
The driver wrote:
“I dreamed of moments like this,” it continued. “god u been so good to me like idk how to re pay u.”
“This is a Facebook public announcement, I don’t violate people food like that … that was personal. we at war.”
A spokesperson for the app-based delivery service told NBC News on Wednesday that the “behavior is absolutely unacceptable and has no place in our community. We take the trust and respect of merchants, customers, and Dashers extremely seriously. We have deactivated the Dasher and have reached out to the customer involved.”
In a statement, Chipotle’s chief corporate affairs officer, Laurie Schalow, said, “The actions displayed by this third-party delivery driver are inexcusable, and we’ve ensured our delivery partner has deactivated the individual’s account.”
The police officer threw out the meal but if the food were dangerous, the driver could be charged with reckless endangerment, a felony.
Hot Air’s John Sexton writes of the sickening double standard and what motivated the driver to act the way he did.
What’s more significant than the incident itself is thinking about what might have prompted it. What sort of beliefs or messages currently circulating might incline someone to consider himself at “war” with the NYPD? Clearly this person expected a favorable response from others on social media which is why he thought posting evidence of what he’d done was a good idea. Why would someone expect clicks and likes for something like this?
