Vincent Paterno, the FedEx driver who posted a profanity-ridden video on TikTok vowing to never deliver items to people who support Black Lives Matter, Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, is now jobless.
What happened: In a TikTok video that was uploaded on Sept. 16, Paterno, 39, is seen sitting inside what seems to be a FedEx delivery truck while wearing his uniform. The man then proceeds to condemn people who show support to the BLM movement and the Biden-Harris administration.

- In the video, Paterno said, “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*cking camel toe posted up in front of your house, Black Lives Matter — I will not deliver your sh*t.” He added, “I will not deliver your sh*t. I will bring that back to the station and I will keep doing that sh*t. Have a good day.”
- Paterno later took down the video after it received backlash online and, later, his account. Twitter account @LivingBlueTX was able to get a copy of the post before it was deleted.
- Most TikTok users criticized Paterno for his post. One of them wrote, “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.”
He won’t have to worry about delivering “our shit”, because he’ll be out of a job

Jobless: Without going into specifics, a representative from FedEx has confirmed Paterno is no longer working for the company, first reported Toofab.
- “We are appalled by the behavior depicted in this video, which does not reflect the views of FedEx,” a company statement read. “This individual is no longer providing service on behalf of the company.”
- However, it is unclear what exactly happened between Paterno and FedEx. Some reports claimed FedEx fired him, but his comment on TikTok said he quit, Fox Business reported.
