Snoop Dogg Called Out Uber Eats For Not Delivering Food To His “Not Safe” Neighborhood
Snoop Dogg recently learned that it doesn’t matter how rich and famous you are, there’s always going to be someone who doesn’t want to deliver food to your house. That’s right, Uber Eats allegedly flaked on Snoop Dogg and just straight-up didn’t deliver the food he ordered. Stars, they’re just like us! Except not really, because when Snoop Dogg complains that his food didn’t show up, he’s sharing that news with 67.4 million Instagram followers. Which then gets reported on by several media outlets. And inevitably turns into a whole thing where the official Grubhub Twitter account joins in and tweets: “We’re always down to drop it like it’s hot! Order through us next time.”
On Friday, Snoop shared a video on Instagram with the caption: “Uber eats where my food at,” and a call to action directed at Uber Eats’ rival delivery service, Postmates. The video was shot from Snoop’s perspective, and showed what appeared to be the communication between himself and his Uber Eats delivery person. According to the date on the communications, Snoop was trying to have food delivered around 10:40pm on Thursday night, and when the delivery person arrived, they asked Snoop to call them, as they didn’t know where to deliver the food. Weird. I always assumed the entrance to Snoop’s home was a giant gate carved with ornate gold joints and a plaque that reads “The Dogg Pound.” But I guess not. The delivery person then followed up their first request with a note saying, “This is not a safe place.” After Snoop reassured them that yes, it’s safe, and proceeded to give detailed instructions as to which gate to deliver the food to. But, the food never made it. And that’s when a pissed-off Snoop decided to record his ordeal.
BuzzFeed did a little digging into this situation, and they believe that once the delivery person showed up, they activated Uber Eats’ 8-minute timer, which means a delivery person cannot cancel an order within that 8-minute time frame. After the timer hit 8 minutes, that’s when the driver messaged that it wasn’t a “safe” area, and that might be when they decided to put the car in drive and bounce. Snoop appears to have replied to the initial message 8 minutes after the last message was sent. Snoop, how? Eight whole minutes of radio silence? If I learned nothing from the lyrics of “Nuthin but a G Thang,” at least I know that Snoop Doggy Dogg will be at the door in one, two, three, and to the four.
But I’m still caught up on that delivery person claiming that Snoop’s delivery area wasn’t “safe.” The man is wealthy! The most dangerous thing in his neighborhood is probably a purebred Bichon Frise named Kettle Corn from three doors down who is known to bark from the window if the gardener trims the hedge too close. Then again, let’s be real here. Snoop is known to associate with convicted felons. But was Martha Stewart even over that night?
