San Francisco. An employee who worked for Amazon for seven years has claimed that he was fired because he made a video and posted it on TikTok. In the video, he jokingly asked customers to stop ordering heavy items.
The TikToker, whose first name is Kendall, posted a video last week revealing that the retail giant fired her due to her complaints, the New York Post reports.
The TikToker also calls himself the “Amazon King” on the social media platform. She said, “Hello guys, I have some bad news. Ugh, Amazon fired me. Seven years wasted.”
“To make a long story short, I made a video about four weeks ago asking people to stop buying heavy items from Amazon because, as an Amazon employee, I get tired of lifting heavy items. I have gone.”
She further said that most viewers found her videos funny.
She said, “Most people took it as a joke, especially if you work at Amazon, you know I was exaggerating… but a lot of people are offended by my video “
TikToker also apologized and said that his intention was not to cause harm.
Kendall said, “If you were offended by that video, I’m sorry. It was never my intention to hurt anyone or discriminate against anyone. I just wanted to make a funny video. I did it just like that.” Not saying. I’ve already lost my job and don’t deserve to be hired again, so please forgive me.”
Meanwhile, Amazon-owned audiobooks and podcasts division Audible is laying off 5 per cent of its workforce i.e. over 100 employees as part of job cuts at the e-commerce giant.
