Just hours later, the FedEx driver in question, Annessa222 on TikTok, apologized for her comments.

“I’m the woman in the video and I just wanted to speak on my side of the story. I pull up to this woman’s house and there are multiple cars in the driveway and her door is open. I went through the back of my truck… and all of a sudden everyone [in the house] is in the doorway,” she explained.

“So I asked for some help and everybody just looked at me. I put it on the dolly and had to bring it up a curb. [Doing so,] I fell with the dolly and package. Im frustrated, it’s cold outside and I’m just trying to gather my thoughts.”

After a short back and forth, she ended up saying the racist comment and deeply apologized to the TikToker and FedEx. “I know better, I’m sorry,” she said.
