In his videos, Kendall expressed frustration over being let go after urging viewers to reconsider purchasing heavy items from Amazon. With over 35,000 followers on TikTok, Kendall’s behind-the-scenes glimpses into Amazon’s inner workings garnered attention, especially his humorous take on the physically demanding tasks.

Addressing his termination, Kendall shared, “Seven long years down the drain just like that,” recounting his dismissal due to a video posted four weeks prior. In the clip, he humorously advised against buying heavy items from Amazon, drawing ire from some viewers despite most interpreting it as a joke.

Acknowledging the unintended offense caused by the video, Kendall expressed regret, stating, “I never meant to offend anyone or discriminate against anyone. I just wanted to make a funny video.” Despite the apology, Kendall remains ineligible for rehire, underscoring the repercussions he faces for shedding light on the challenges faced by Amazon workers.

Kendall’s account of his Amazon experience highlights the physical toll of jobs in the warehouse, where he humorously revealed the monotony of picking items—ranging from Fiji water to dog food. His plea for customers to reconsider purchasing water from Amazon, considering the delays in delivery, struck a chord with viewers.

The termination has sparked a conversation about the treatment of Amazon employees, with Kendall expressing concern for fellow workers, including a “50-year-old lady who has to grab the dog food from the top shelf.” The incident invites reflection on the working conditions within Amazon’s warehouses and raises questions about the company’s response to employee concerns.
