Zomato delivery boy sacked after video goes viral


Over the last couple of days, social media was flooded with the video of a delivery guy from Zomato opening the delivery package, eating the food and putting it back in his bag for delivery. Zomato has now sacked the delivery boy who is reportedly from Madurai. They also ensured that tamper-proof tapes will be introduced so that no such incidents happen in the future.

But post firing the delivery guy’s news came out, internet expressed how disheartened this incident actually was.

The Zomato delivery chap eating from various orders is depressing. It's what happens when you make people who can't afford a square meal, keep handling mountains of food. All food deliveries should offer 1-2 square meals a day for their delivery people. It's only fair. Great CSR- Brown Sahiba

Food delivering apps like Zomato, UberEats and Swiggy are truly a blessing to youngsters who live alone and are too busy to cook. But the latest video was truly a reality check to many.

“We take food tampering very seriously”, tweeted Zomato.

“Feeling bad about the Zomato delivery guy. Everyone knows how exploited these guys are in India. And there's so much competition that many of these guys can't even afford to sit and have a meal lest they lose one more delivery”, tweeted S.
