Black Fedex employees were fired after an incident in Leesburg, GA, with a racist white man who threatened them.
Antonio Braswell caught the interaction with his coworker, Felinzay Darnell Lundy, on video and put it on Twitter. The video went viral and led to FedEx firing the men. The shipping company denies all reports of firing the men over the video, but Power attorney Ben Crump says otherwise.
Crump says FedEx isn’t protecting their employees on the job. In a statement from BET, Crump stated,
“Logistics workers are on the frontline of maintaining our supply chain. They are essential employees in this pandemic, regardless of their skin color.”Ben Crump
The two men have a GoFundMe account set up on their behalf by a Georgia resident that has raised $51,000 so far.
