‘Vine you p****!’: Jeremy Vine tweets video of foul-mouthed Amazon delivery driver getting in his way as he cycles to work
BBC Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine has released a video showing him being accosted on the street by an Amazon delivery man who labels him as ‘p****’.
The video, filmed in London, shows the 57-year-old approaching a white van and driving up the road where he encounters the man, seen carrying multiple Amazon packages.
After recognizing Vine, the man is filmed saying, “Vine, you p****.”
Incredulous, the Channel 5 presenter replied, ‘What me? Why?’.
In response, the unknown man once again called Mr. Vine a “p****.”
MailOnline has reached out to Amazon and Mr Vine for further clarification on the incident.
Jeremy Vine claims to have encountered an Amazon delivery man on the way
Who, upon recognizing him, promptly and aggressively labeled him a “p****”
It remains unclear whether the mysterious screamer is indeed an Amazon employee
The cycling activist posted the clip to Twitter, where he posts footage of his interactions with motorists.
He captioned it, “I know Amazon says they provide a personalized service, but this is fucking ridiculous.”
The star was soon inundated with messages of support and shock from fellow cyclists and his followers.
One said, ‘What’s the matter with people? why do so many people feel like swearing whenever they want.’
Another said, “Big chip on his shoulder about something.”
Another joked, “On the bright side, at least he recognized you right away.”
Others warned Vine not to assume the man was an Amazon driver just because he had a lot of packages.
They said, “Not an Amazon delivery person per se. I mean, I don’t care anyway, but objectively it could be a third-party driver or a Herbert with returns.”
Others said that Vine, himself a road safety advocate, had actually been right about his behavior.
One of them said “So he crosses behind the white van assuming it’s safe to do so because the road is blocked you then swerve around it instead of just waiting politely then it’s the fault of the delivery man.
“Not even in that situation is his description of you accurate and factual.”
