‘I will not deliver your s***,’ he said doubling down on his rant. ‘I will bring that back to the station and I will keep doing that s***. Have a good day.’

A FedEx spokesperson said that they were ‘appalled’ by the video stating that the video ‘does not reflect the views of FedEx’
A FedEx spokesperson commented on the video in a statement to TooFab, ‘We are appalled by the behavior depicted in this video, which does not reflect the views of FedEx,’ the spokesperson said.
‘This individual is no longer providing service on behalf of the company.’
Paterno explained in a TikTok video posted Sunday that he had already told his supervisors that he planned to leave the company this month, and refuted media reports he’d been fired as a result.
He posted a followup video allegedly showing text messages from August 9 where he informed his boss that he would work his last shift the week that the video was posted.
The original TikTok video amassed over 74K views and more than 3K comments, the majority of which criticized Paterno’s offensive rant.
The top comment on the video reads: ‘You about to lose your job.’
Another comment asks: ‘How are you 40 acting like this?’
Paterno posted another TikTok video on Sunday explaining that he had given his resignation before the offensive video was posted

Others noted that according to 18 US Code 1708, obstructing mail delivery is a crime. One TikTok user tagged the FBI and wrote: ‘this man just admitted to withholding mail over political beliefs.’
Another posted: ‘that’s literally a crime?’
Several users pointed out the danger that some people could face if their packages weren’t delivered including people who get medication sent to their house.
‘Some people get medicine delivered, including life saving medicine or medical devices. You could be hurting people,’ someone wrote.
Another commented: ‘I want a felony charge and jail time. People get medicine delivered to them. I want him arrested.’
