DoorDash has reportedly fired one of its drivers in Texas after he cursed at a customer when she gave him a $5 tip for a $20 order of pizza.

TikToker Lacey Purciful (@ladybug3660) caught a heated exchange between herself and her DoorDasher on her home security camera after he finished delivering her pizza.

In the viral footage, the driver - who has only been identified as Corey - can be seen through the doorbell camera approaching her house and the conversation seemed to be going well at first.

He handed the 38-year-old her pizza delivery and then glanced at her property before snarkily saying: "I just want to say it’s a nice house for a 5-dollar tip."

Watch the TikTok below:

The woman was clearly stunned by the remark as she sarcastically replied: "You're welcome!", but the delivery driver didn't take it well as he fired back "F**k you," while walking away.

Writing over the video - which has amassed almost 300K views - the Texas homeowner penned: "So how much should I be tipping for a $20 pie??"

In a follow-up video with 1.4 million views, Lacey shared a clip and receipt from a delivery made the same day in which she tipped a more likable driver nearly 60 percent on a $17 bill.

"Just to clear the air... I do tip well!! After my interactions with dashers," she wrote in the overlay. She also added in the caption: "This was the same day as the pizza incident. I have worked in the Service Industry for over 10 years!! I do Tip very well. But I also tip on my interaction with the Dasher. This kind man was so sweet & friendly!! Thanks for being kind!!"

While the rules around tipping delivery drivers have been well-established in US culture for a long time, it continues to be an ongoing discourse.

According to Daily Dot, three to five dollars is deemed a good tip since delivery drivers aren't expected to perform the same level of service as a waiter. So, in this case, Lacey tipped the Doordasher 25% - which is quite generous.

As the video continues to make rounds on social media, Door Dash has spoken out and revealed that Corey has been fired from the delivery company, as reported by the publication.

"Respectfully asking for a tip is acceptable but abusing or harassing someone is never acceptable. We’ve removed this Dasher from our platform and reached out to the customer," they said. "Our rules exist to help ensure everyone who uses our platform - Dashers, customers, merchants - have a safe and enjoyable experience.

"We expect everyone to treat others with respect and we will enforce our rules fairly and consistently," they added.
