Amazon manager reportedly fired after berating black company deliveryman for walking on his lawn

New video captures the moment a white Amazon manager in North Carolina berates a fellow company deliveryman who is black for walking on his lawn and possibly calls him the n-word in an outburst that later got him fired.

The Ring doorbell clip shows Brad Boynton unleashing on Nikolas Mayrant for taking two steps across his lawn in Cornelius to deliver a package as he yells at the driver to “walk the f— away,” the US Sun reported.

Boynton, who was listed in a since-removed LinkedIn page as a program manager in Amazon’s transport division, shouts at Mayrant while on the phone with a colleague and tells him he didn’t “follow any of the f—ing policies.”

Mayrant claimed in a GoFundMe campaign, that has been removed, that the white manager called him racial slurs and even accused him of parking his vehicle incorrectly, according to Revolt TV

“This is nepotism and racism at its finest,” the driver reportedly wrote, claiming he was suspended after Boynton complained. He said he simply “park[ed] awkwardly on a narrow street” to avoid other vehicles.

“After waiting behind my van for no longer than 20 seconds, the individual slammed the door in my face whilst I was trying to deliver his package to him,” Mayrant said, the outlet reported.

Towards the end of the viral video clip as Mayrant walks away, Boynton can be heard twice saying what appears to be the n-word.

An Amazon rep told the Daily Mail that the manager never said the n-word, but was saying, “Nader, Nader,” referring to the person he was talking with on the phone.

Despite Mayrant’s claim of being suspended, Amazon said he is still employed, according to the US Sun.

“We were deeply concerned by what we observed in the video and opened an investigation into the incident,” a spokesperson told the outlet.

“After speaking with both parties and working quickly to understand exactly what transpired, we took immediate action,” the rep said.

“We do not condone bullying or harassing behavior of any type and as a result of our investigation, we’ve terminated the individual shown bullying our delivery partner,” the spokesperson added.

Mayrant’s sister, Heather Rose, shared footage of the encounter on her Instagram page.

“I know racism is still alive, [I] mean I see it all the time on the internet & it hurts me then, but it’s a little more heartbreaking & shocking to see when it’s my blood brother,” she wrote on Tuesday.

“I’m just so happy my brother decided to keep walkin & didn’t lash out. He probably wouldnt be here to today over an Amazon package!!!” Rose added.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Post.
