Revolting video captured by a doorbell camera has caught an Amazon delivery man apparently spitting on a package on the customer’s front porch and using his hand to smear his saliva.
“I received the box and saw a big wet spot and then checked the camera!” the horrified resident, Marcus Martinez, wrote on Twitter.
The disgusting incident amid the coronavirus pandemic occurred Thursday evening in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, according to TMZ.
The footage shows the man, who is wearing a vest with the Amazon logo on the back, leaning over to spit on the package and then wiping it with his hand before apparently snapping a photo of his dastardly delivery.
Sources told TMZ that a friend of the resident contacted Amazon, whose customer service representative gasped in horror while viewing the vile video.
The rep later said the deliveryman, who worked for a third-party service, has been reported.
A neighbor also posted the nauseating tracking photo along with a strong message to Amazon.
“I’d like to believe this was an honest mistake. PLEASE make sure your staff is educated and taking all the necessary precautions!” the message says.
An Amazon spokesperson told The Post in an email: “This is clearly not representative of drivers who deliver for Amazon and the care they take for customers around the world every day. We are aggressively investigating to understand what may have occurred in this situation. If it truly was a malicious act by the driver, we will be sure he is held accountable, up through and including law enforcement action.”
People who intentionally spread the coronavirus could be charged with terrorism for the “purposeful exposure and infection of others,” according to a Justice Department memo, CNN reported.
