‘Vine you p****!’: Jeremy Vine tweets video of foul-mouthed Amazon delivery driver getting in his way as he cycles to work
BBC Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine has released a video apparently showing him being accosted in the street by an Amazon delivery man who brands him a ‘p****’.
In the video, filmed in London, the 57-year-old can be seen approaching a white van and edging out into the road where he runs into the man, seen carrying multiple Amazon packages.
After recognising Vine, the man is filmed saying: ‘Vine, you p****’.
Incredulous, the Channel 5 presenter replied: ‘What me? Why?’.
In response, the unidentified man once again called Mr Vine a ‘p****’.
MailOnline has reached out to Amazon and Mr Vine for more clarification on the incident.
Jeremy Vine has released a video of his interaction with an ‘Amazon delivery driver’ on the road
The man upon recognising Vine, promptly and aggressively branded him a ‘p****’
It remains unclear if the mystery shouter is indeed an employee of Amazon
The cycle campaigner released the clip on Twitter, where he posts footage of his interactions with motorists.
Captioning it, he said: ‘I know Amazon say they give a personal service, but this is bloody ridiculous.’
The star was soon inundated with messages of support and shock from fellow cyclists and his followers.
One said: ‘What is up with people? why do so many people feel like hurling abuse whenever they feel like it.’
Another said: ‘Big chip on his shoulder about something.’
Another joked: ‘On the positive side, at least he recognised you straight away.’
Others warned Vine not to assume the man was an amazon driver just because he had a lot of packages.
They said: ‘Not necessarily an Amazon delivery driver. I mean I don’t care either way but objectively speaking it could be a third party driver or some Herbert with returns.’
Others said Vine, himself a stickler for road safety, had actually been in the right with his conduct.
One said: ‘So he crosses behind the white van assuming it’s safe to do so as the way is blocked, you then swerve around it rather than just hang on a second with a bit of courtesy, then it’s the delivery man’s fault.
‘Even not in that situation his description of you is bang on and factual.’
