A delivery rider’s actions have sparked public outrage after a video of him kicking and throwing a food package surfaced online.
The shocking incident unfolded at a local restaurant and was recorded by the establishment’s surveillance cameras.
The brief yet controversial video, lasting just 12 seconds, swiftly spread like wildfire on social media following its posting on the Twitter account, Malaysia Most Viral.
The clip shows the rider visibly mishandling a food package intended for a customer. His disrespectful actions were promptly noticed, prompting an employee of the restaurant to step in and question his behavior.
Following the spread of the video, a flurry of critical comments flooded the internet, expressing distaste at the rider’s actions.
Many internet users have voiced their disapproval. The caption read, “If you’re not in the mood to work, just turn off your Grab app. There’s no need to kick around food like you’ve lost your senses. If you get banned, you’ll be the one going berserk.”
Another critic drew attention to the long-term consequences of such actions. They commented, “Just imagine if this is your attitude as a self-employed rider. Do you think you can work with people with this attitude?”
One empathetic netizen tried to understand the situation from the rider’s perspective, stating, “This might be due to the vendor’s delay in preparing the food. I can understand his stress waiting for the food to be ready. However, he definitely should not have kicked the food. That food is someone’s sustenance. Unbelievable. If you’re tired of waiting, just switch off and take a break.”
