Heavy reached out to Amazon public relations for comment. They didn’t respond, but they did reveal in a statement to media that the driver was fired.
“This does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery service partners and their drivers,” Amazon spokesperson Maria Boschetti told Fox News. “Allowing unauthorized passengers to enter delivery vehicles is a violation of Amazon policy, and the driver is no longer delivering packages to Amazon customers.”
The driver’s name was not released nor did the company provide additional details about the woman in question. However, the driver was from Florida.
‘Amazon Be Different,’ the TikTok Video’s Caption Says
The user @patrickhook01 captioned the viral video, “Amazon be different😮💨😮💨 #fyp #viral #florida #amazon #KFCSecretMenuHacks.” He first shared the video on TikTok on October 24, 2021.
In the video, a woman in a black dress climbs out of the back of the Amazon Prime van and then strolls calmly down the street. It’s not clear exactly what was happening inside the van.
A woman claimed to know the woman in the viral video, but it’s not clear if that was accurate. She wrote, “Lol! That’s my older sister. We know she’s a freak. I showed her this video and she freaked out lol, she deserves it though.” That user claimed they grew up in Ohio but her sister moved to Florida, where the video was filmed. Heavy reached out to the woman to see if her sister wants to comment but did not receive a reply.
People quickly filled up the original poster’s comment thread with jokes:

“Amazon: ‘your package is 1 stop away.’ Hour later: ‘your stop is still 1 stop away.’”
