Ice-T has won the battle with a Twitter user who didn’t take kindly to his suggestion for Amazon.
The rapper made headlines earlier this week when he admitted he almost shot an Amazon delivery driver who was not dressed in uniform. But when a woman took issue with his suggestion to the e-commerce company, his response led her to report it to Twitter.
Amazon Flex is a program that pays regular people between $18-$25 an hour to deliver packages during their own business hours, according to the program website.
It appears an individual working for Amazon Flex was responsible for delivering a package to Ice-T’s home Monday night and their lack of a uniform nearly led the MC to open fire.
“Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries … maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it. … I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night…. Just sayin,” Ice-T tweeted Tuesday, May 21.
In response to the post, Amazon Help reached out to say they were sending the issue to their logistics team to look into. It also led to tons of responses from Twitter users.
“A vest or a jacket that you can put on and take off easily would work fine.”
“The feedback is if you don’t want a MFer shot, he should have something on that says AMAZON on it.”
“A lot of Amazon drivers do not work for Amazon. We are everyday people doing a side gig. We use our own cars and our own clothes.”
Amazon Senior Vice President of Operations Dave Clark also tweeted saying, “Just sayin…thanks for the suggestion. We MF’ing love you and our drivers. Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map. Thanks for being a customer.”
However, one Twitter user’s response led to a terse reply from Ice-T.
“Crazy idea: if you’ve ordered something, and you see someone walking towards your house with a package, and you know that Amazon hires plain-clothed people to deliver their packages, maybe don’t shoot them?” tweeted @maggersmorris.
“Here’s a Crazy idea… Mind your business B—-,” the rapper replied.
Apparently, Morris had a major problem with the MC’s response and reported it to Twitter. The social media platform emailed Ice-T notifying him of the complaint and noted no issues or violations could be identified.
“I’ve been REPORTED… Lol. Once again… Somebody talks s—… Then gets butt hurt when I simply reply… Lol,” the performer said in response to the message on Thursday.
The tweet prompted tons of laughs from the “Law and Order: SVU” actor’s fans.
“She went straight to the Blue Bird Authorities on you man…. LOL.”
“I’m still wondering what she hoped to accomplish with her tweets. lol.”
“RITE… An Wit Ice Out Of ALL People 🤣🤣🤣”
