  • The scene unfolded in Detroit after Rodney King Jr. ordered a pizza for his family
  • While its not confirmed, the pizza appeared to originate at a Little Caesars
  • King and his wife happened to be watching their front porch camera at the time of the delivery, otherwise they may not have seen the pizza drop take place
  • After no refund was initially issued or apology made, King complained to DoorDash, who proceeded to deactivate the driver’s account with the company 

A DoorDash driver in Detroit is out of a job after he was caught on a video camera stuffing a pizza back into a box after dropping it on a homeowner’s front porch.

The driver in the video hasn’t been named, but he was caught by Rodney King Jr. after he ordered the pizza from the delivery service.

‘She didn’t feel like cooking, I didn’t feel like cooking, so we decided to order a pizza,’ King shared with FOX 2.

He and his wife happened to have their eye on their Vivint home security camera at the time of the delivery, located on the porch.

When the driver appeared to deliver the pizza, however, he was holding the bag he was carrying vertically, which is far from the proper way to carry a pizza in its proper box.

While its unconfirmed, the packaging of the box in the video suggests the pizza was from Little Caesars. 

‘When the guy was walking up to our porch, we saw that he was holding the pizza vertically, so from there I knew for a fact that the pizza was outside of the box,’ King stated after the fact.

That’s when the moment of disaster struck. As the driver pulled the pizza out of the box vertically, it was already escaped from the box and wound up on the porch floor.

After the delivery drop, the driver proceeded to try scooping the pizza back into the box

Rather than ringing the doorbell and telling King about what had happened, the unnamed driver instead decided to scoop the pizza back into the box as neatly as he could.

Then, the driver walked away.

‘He picked up all the crumbs and everything and walked off,’ King said.

The Detroit man was hoping for an apology or a refund, but didn’t even get a phone call in regards to the pizza he no longer wanted.

‘As soon as I saw the pizza hit the floor, my heart sank a little bit,’ King said. ‘I was hungry but I was really hoping that he would do the right thing.’

King contacted DoorDash to file a complaint, which led to the delivery driver losing his gig with the company.

‘This inappropriate and unacceptable behavior is never tolerated on the DoorDash platform,’ the company said in a statement.

‘The dasher involved was immediately deactivated, and we have been in touch with the customer and fully refunded the order. We sincerely regret that this incident fell short of the experience we strive to provide every day.’

While this incident ended up being relatively tame, a DoorDash driver was caught on camera snatching a dog from a Detroit home back in January.

The driver was later caught and confessed to the crime, according to WXYZ, and the dog was returned to its family. 

King isn’t believed to be related to Rodney King, the victim of a 1991 beating at the hands of the LAPD who died in 2012.
