Rapper Styles P of The Lox is being praised on Twitter for stepping up and confronting two police officers who body slammed a female delivery driver.

The officers were arresting the woman for a minor traffic infraction. The video footage shows the two officers slam the woman on the ground. One officer restrained her with his knee in her back while the other cop handcuffed her.

That's when Styles P stepped up and yelled at the officers. "Yo! He's a b-tch... Yo, sista, loosen up," he said.

The camera person added, "That's a girl by the way!"

And since it wasn't immediately clear to the cops that the male-identified person on the ground was a female, Styles P and the camera person assumed her gender.

"You slammed a girl for no reason!" Styles P said, referring to the grown woman.

With so many people identifying themselves as non-binary, gender fluid, or transgender, it seems politically incorrect for both Styles P and the camera person to loudly assume the gender identity of the person being arrested.

In its gender etiquette guide, Everyday Feminism says it's rude and deadly to assume a person's identity.

"Why can't you just assume others' a/gender identities? The short answer is: because it's rude, and can cause a lot of harm... Our society has imposed gendered traits onto certain body parts and secondary sex characteristics. They actually are meaningless for determining that person's a/gender identity."

According to the guide, Styles P should have asked the person's pronouns and how they identify themselves rather than assume she is a "girl."

"We need to toss the idea that you can decide someone else's identity without asking them. Because we can’t," says Everyday Feminism.

Hundreds of DoorDash customers took to social media to show off food they ordered for free. A glitch in the online food ordering app led to thousands of free food orders.

The glitch occurred on Thursday, July 7, when DoorDash customers noticed their cards weren't being charged for delivery orders.

Hundreds of customers flooded social media showing off large orders of steak, lobster, and top shelf wine at over $1,000 a bottle.

Some customers posted receipts showing thousands of dollars of worth of food they got for free. Ironically, the customers didn't tip their delivery drivers.

DoorDash discovered the problem and attributed it to an error with its payment processing service. The company is working on canceling fraudulent orders.

In a statement to The Street, DoorDash said:

"On the evening of July 7th DoorDash experienced a payment processing issue, and as a result, some users were able to check out without an authorized form of payment for a short period of time," the statement says. "We were subsequently notified that some users were placing fraudulent orders, and we immediately corrected the issue."

DoorDash added:

"We're actively canceling fraudulent orders, and are in touch with merchants impacted to ensure they are compensated for any unauthorized orders they may have received."

Philadelphia PD, WRAL

A DoorDash driver was arrested after he shot a 17-year-old Chick-fil-A employee over a missing milkshake from a food order.

The employee was treated at a nearby hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg.

The shooting happened at Philadelphia's Crescentville location on Monday night.

Police said Tyquan Austin argued with the employee because a second milkshake was missing from an order he was delivering for DoorDash.

When the employee asked to see a receipt to verify the order, Austin pulled out a gun and put it in his lap, according to police.

The worker summoned the manager, who came out before Austin drove away, police said.

Austin then returned to the restaurant and fired a single shot at the worker from the entrance.

Police said Austin shot the teenager, even after Chick-fil-A employees offered to make the missing milkshake.

"The shooting was unprovoked and endangered multiple people beyond the shooting victim, who was wounded in the leg and is expected to recover," the DA's Office said.

Austin's car was found abandoned in an alley. As police secured the vehicle, a man approached and said he was not the car's owner but his belongings were inside.

The man was taken into custody by police. Surveillance video helped police make a positive identification of the suspect from a tattoo on the man's neck.

Austin, 26, faces charges of aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault and reckless endangerment, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said Wednesday.

Police discovered more FedEx packages dumped in the woods in Alabama, about 75 miles from where about 400 packages were found in a ravine.

Nearly two dozen FedEx boxes were found along a rural road this week in the Alabama town of Jemison, police say.

According to the Blount County Sheriff's Office, the FedEx driver dumped packages into an Alabama ravine 6 times.

"We are in the process of contacting officials with Fed Ex so that they can investigate this situation and contact their customers," police said.

The driver who was assigned to deliver all the packages has been identified and questioned by police.

"This will not be an easy or fast case to close," said Moon who declined to name the driver. "Again I am asking for patience from our citizens as our investigators work through this case."

Hayden residents Chris and Andrea Finchum finally received an Xbox that was dumped in the ravine. The package that it came in was wet and damaged.

"It's heartbreaking that someone would take advantage of people when they are supposed to be delivering kids toys to them for Christmas," Andrea Finchum told KLTV.

Memphis, Tennessee-based FedEx said in a statement that the driver is no longer employed by FedEx Ground. FedEx is cooperating with law enforcement, ABC News reports.

FedEx sent multiple trucks and drivers to pick up the packages, according to the sheriff.

The fired Amazon driver who was seen in a viral video sneaking a woman out of his delivery truck finally explains what happened.

In a video call with TMZ, Tywan George confirmed that the woman captured on surveillance video was a working girl.

"It ain't nothing like I know her personally, you know what I'm sayin'?" he told TMZ.

Tywan said rent is high in the Tampa, Florida area, and the young lady was doing what she had to do to "make ends meet."

The viral surveillance footage, uploaded to TikTok by user @patrickhook01, shows the barefoot, scantily-clad woman slipping out the backdoor of an Amazon Prime delivery truck last month.

Tywan says he knew he would probably be fired because Amazon has strict policies against unauthorized people in delivery vehicles.

"There was no packages reported missing - nothing was reported stolen, you know what I'm saying? It was just the incident just went viral, you know what I'm saying? That's pretty much what cost me my job."

With nothing to lose, Tywan admitted he did what any other red-blooded American male in his situation would do.

"Honestly, I just look at it like it is what it is now, you feel me?"

Remember the Amazon driver who gave a scantily clad woman a lift in his van? According to published reports, he is currently unemployed.

The Florida Amazon Prime driver was caught on cell phone video letting the woman out of the backdoor of his van on a side street.

The woman, who appeared to be barefoot, was seen adjusting her dress as she strolled away from the van.

The video was first uploaded to TikTok where it generated over 12 million views since last weekend, according to the NY Post.

The video sparked rampant speculation on all social media platforms. Many wondered if the driver was only giving the woman a lift.

While others joked that he was giving her a ride she would never forget.

Despite the humor behind the clip, Amazon bosses didn't find the viral video funny at all.

According to TMZ, the driver was quickly identified and fired for allowing unauthorized passengers into the van.

"This does not reflect the high standards we have for our Delivery Service Partners and their drivers," a rep for the company told TMZ.

"Allowing unauthorized passengers to enter delivery vehicles is a violation of Amazon policy, and the driver is no longer delivering packages to Amazon customers."

A cell phone video that shows an Amazon driver apparently giving a friend a lift home in his delivery truck has gone viral on social media.

The video shows a woman wearing a black cocktail dress exiting the back of an Amazon truck while the driver holds the door for her.

The video is straight forward, but speculation has run rampant on social media that the driver was not delivering a package to the woman.

According to one Twitter user, the Amazon driver was simply giving an acquaintance a ride home.

The Twitter user said the driver was being unfairly judged by Twitter users who were jumping to conclusions.

Others shared their concerns for the driver's job in these challenging times. Some said he might get fired for being a Good Samaritan.

The video was originally posted to TikTok by user @patrickhook01 who gave no context to what was happening in the video.

One Twitter user wrote:

"You can't get away with anything in this century with all the technology lmao. Dude is definitely getting questioned or getting fired."

A shocking viral video shows the final moments of a delivery driver's life after two teenage girls carjacked him in Washington, DC.

The 13- and 15-year-old girls have been charged as adults in the death of 66-year-old father-of-three Mohammad Anwar, who was killed when he was thrown from his speeding car.

Anwar, a delivery driver for Uber Eats, was working in the southeast section of D.C. when two girls attempted to carjack him.

Cell phone video footage shows Anwar leaning halfway out of his car, as a girl wearing an orange hoodie attempts to push him out of his car.

Anwar tells a bystander "they're kids", while holding on to the steering wheel of his car.

Anwar had put the car in park, but one of the teenagers shifted the transmission into drive and hit the accelerator. The car sped off -- with Anwar still holding on for dear life.

Two loud bangs are heard on the video as the open driver's side door impacted two metal light poles during the car's route.

Seconds later, the car lost control, overturned and crashed, leaving Anwar sprawled on the sidewalk near death from severe head injuries.

Several National Guardsmen are seen on the video helping the teenagers out of the wrecked vehicle.

As her victim lay dying, one of the teens is overheard saying, "Please, my phone is in there. My phone!"

Twitter users criticized CNN for calling the murder an "accident" -- and D.C. mayor Muriel Bower was dragged for appearing to blame the victim by reminding residents to lock their cars to prevent auto theft.

The FedEx driver cursed while speaking to a fellow employee on his cell phone as he struggled with the oversized package.

The 144-pound sofa had been delivered by FedEx twice, but the furniture was damaged both times.

"Now we're wondering if it was broken because of the way they treat the merchandise," Wendorf told WISN.

According to FedEx's guidelines on its website, the package is within its acceptable weight limits of 150 pounds.

Wendorf said she sent the video to FedEx but she received no response. So she took her complaint to the news media.

The Postmates driver who was roasted by Lizzo for allegedly stealing her fast food has filed a lawsuit against the obese singer.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Tiffany Wells claims Lizzo ruined her life when she put her on blast back in September.

Wells says her life was threatened by Lizzo's fans and she lives in constant fear. She said she is subject to ridicule and humiliation, along with stress and anxiety.

The "Truth Hurts" singer called out Wells for allegedly stealing her delivery, tweeting: "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don't fight no more."

Postmates responded quickly, apologizing to the 31-year-old star, and saying Wells waited outside Lizzo's Boston hotel for the required five minutes, but she was unable to reach the "Juice" singer, so she left.

Some Twitter users sided with Lizzo, but others criticized her for "snitching" on a minimum wage food service worker.

"Jesus. This poor girl is going to get fired and then hunted down. Come on, Lizzo," tweeted one user.

Another user tweeted: "So you've publicly shamed someone who works in the service industry… you’ve nearly a million twitter followers… and you've now DMd their employer who will likely sack the individual you shamed publicly after accusing her of theft when you don’t actually know what happened."

Lizzo later apologized for posting Wells's photo and contact information on Twitter.com.

"I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."
