FedEx may deliver “the world on time”, as its slogan says, but one of its drivers balked at making any deliveries to those houses on his route that displayed pro-Biden or Black Lives Matter flags and signs.
Now the company has fired Vincent Paterno, who mocked Kamala Harris’ name with a vulgar term via a video on TikTok and vowed in another profanity-laced video to never deliver packages to houses championing the Black Lives Matter movement.
The video, originally posted on September 16th, has since garnered over 40,000 views and more than 2,100 comments, many criticizing Paterno’s views.
“You about to lose your job 😂😂😂,” the top-liked comment reads.
“So if you get sick and go to the ER remember those doctors, nurses, and people have the right not to help you if they support Biden 😁😁,” another wrote. One commenter pointed out that some of the packages Paterno withheld could have contained life-saving medicine or medical devices.
“Somebody tag me in his weepy apology video after he gets fired 😂,” wrote another commenter.

“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***,” Paterno said, visibly wearing a FedEx uniform.
“I will not deliver your s***,” he reiterated. “I will bring that back to the station and I will keep doing that s***. Have a good day.”
A FedEx spokesperson recently confirmed that Paterno was no longer an employee of the company.
