‘I was delivering packages…making ends meet!’ Amazon delivery driver fired after scantily-clad woman was filmed getting out of his van reveals it was his partner
- Former Amazon delivery driver Tywan George said he did ‘what any other man in in America would do in his situation,’
- He spoke after he was fired for hosting his ‘partner’ inside the company’s work vehicle while dropping off packages in Florida
- The video, which was shot in June and recently posted to TikTok, showed the blue vested man holding the door open for a woman in a skimpy black dress
- Amazon has confirmed George no longer works for the company and does not allow ‘unauthorized passengers to enter delivery vehicles’
An Amazon driver fired over a video showing a scantly-dressed woman sneaking out of his work van says he was ‘delivering packages’ and ‘making ends meet’ in an innuendo-laden interview suggesting they had indeed been having sex.
Tywan George said he did ‘what any other man in America would do in his situation,’ which included spending time with ‘his partner’ in the back of the company vehicle.
When asked to elaborate about his behind-closed-doors activities, a smiling George replied: ‘my job,’ and added his duties included delivering packages.
‘That’s exactly what I was doing.’
The Tampa, Florida, man was fired last month after being caught on camera letting a woman in a short black dress out of the back of his work van.

The video, shot in June and posted to TikTok in October, shows an unidentified woman with her phone tucked into the neckline jumping out the back of the van as a delivery man dressed in his blue vest holds the door open for her.
The woman appears to be barefoot.
A company representative told TMZ that the driver’s actions do not ‘reflect the high standards we have for our Delivery Service Partners and their drivers.’

‘Allowing unauthorized passengers to enter delivery vehicles is a violation of Amazon policy, and the driver is no longer delivering packages to Amazon customers,’ the company said.
George said in a TMZ video posted Sunday that the public had the wrong idea about the scene – and that he knew as soon as the TikTok video grew in popularity that his time with the online shopping giant was over.
‘Everybody misconstrued the video,’ he told TMZ. ‘Rent is high in town for everything. It’s just hot. It was making ends meet, basically, if you get what I’m saying.’
He said he expected to be axed after the video went viral because of Amazon’s ‘strict’ behavior policies, and called the encounter a ‘one-time incident.’
Meanwhile, social media have thoroughly enjoyed the video, poking fun at Amazon’s ‘Prime’ service and the current state of slow delivery times as the holidays approach.
‘He was just giving her prime delivery!’ one user wrote.
Another poked fun at the slow delivery services lately, writing: ‘So this is why my packages always end up being late.’
Someone even made light of Amazon monopolizing several industries, which includes its grocery service Amazon Fresh and streaming platform Prime Video, among others.
Social media users had a hay day joking about his ‘prime delivery’ and that her package was actually ‘estimated to be delivered by 8-9 months’

‘Amazon is taking over every industry,’ the user wrote.
Most on Twitter jumped at the chance to mention that her ‘real package’ wouldn’t arrive for eight to nine months.
‘Her package is estimated to be delivered by 8-9 months,’ one Twitter user wrote.
The TikTok video, shot by Dylan Hook and posted by his brother Patrick, has racked in more than 11 million views.
