Amazon manager caught calling firm's own delivery driver the N-word for walking on his grass – then 'gets him fired'
AN Amazon manager was allegedly filmed racially abusing a black delivery driver from his own company – and then got him FIRED.
Shocking doorbell camera footage shows him calling Nikolas Mayrant the N-word after he walked on the lawn.
The video shows the homeowner ranting at Nikolas and yelling at him to "walk the f*** away", apparently while also speaking on the phone.
It is claimed he was calling another Amazon colleague at the time to complain about the driver, and also took photos of him.
The man can be heard screaming at Nikolas again for walking on the grass, saying he did not "follow the policies".
He is then heard calling Nikolas "n*****" at least twice.
A short clip of the bust-up in Cornelius, North Carolina, was posted on Instagram by Nikolas' sister Heather Rose.
Heather said in her Insta post: "I know racism is still alive, mean I see it all the time on the internet & it hurts me then, but it's a little more heart breaking & shocking to see when it's my blood brother.
"Anyone who knows my brother knows he is the most quiet person & stays to hisself!
"My brother was FIRED from his job for asking the guy why the pics & walking on his grass after he called him a N-g**."
She later posted a screengrab of a LinkedIn profile she claims belongs to the the "racist" customer. It appears to show he is employed as a program manager in Amazon's transport division.
The profile appeared to have been taken down today, along with a Facebook page in the same name.
Nikolas said he was axed after the other man sent the Ring doorbell video to his Amazon station manager – even though it shows he was the victim of racial abuse.
He claims the homeowner falsely complained he had breached a series of policies, including by how he parked his car, according to Revolt TV.
“This is nepotism and racism at its finest,” Nikolas wrote on a since-deleted GoFundMe page.
The video sparked a wave of support for Nikolas and threats to boycott Amazon over the way he was treated.
Civil right attorney Benjamin Crump reposted the video to his 714,000 followers on Twitter.
He said: "This is unacceptable! A Black Amazon driver was FIRED from his job after a neighborhood resident called him racial slurs & harassed him while taking photos of him.
"Why was this young man terminated when he was the victim of this shameful harassment?!"
Amazon has not yet responded to a request for comment, reports DailyMail.com.
