- A DoorDasher was caught on video spitting on their customer’s food
- The deliveryman was disappointed by their tip, which a Miami teen was ‘good’ for the half-mile delivery journey
A DoorDash customer got a side of saliva with his takeout after the deliveryman was caught spitting on the food as revolting revenge for a ‘small tip.’
Elias Crisanto, 13, ordered food for himself and his mom to be delivered to their Miami apartment. The teenager left his DoorDash deliveryman a $3 tip, which he thought was ‘good’ for the half-mile journey for the driver.
Crisanto watched the delivery happen in real-time through the Ring doorbell camera, and it seems normal at first.
The deliveryman, a man wearing a casual outfit of flip-flops and shorts, approached the door and put the food down before taking a picture to prove the food had been delivered.
But in a disgusting moment caught on Ring camera footage – the DoorDasher is seen crouching down to spit on the food, not once or twice but three times.

DoorDash said: ‘While we empathize with the frustration of not receiving a tip, this behavior is unacceptable and falls far below the high quality experience we aim to provide’
The Spanish-speaking deliveryman strutted away whilst complaining about not receiving a good tip for picking up the food and delivering it half a mile.
Elias said to Telemundo 51 he watched the incident happen through the security camera app on his phone.
“If it wasn’t because of the camera, no one knows. I wanted to vomit, because who does that?’ the teen asked.
Tampering with anyone’s food is a felony in the state of Florida, according to Florida’s Anti-Tampering Food Act.
If a person is convicted of food tampering it’s considered a second-degree felony, which could result in penalties including up to 15 years in jail or $10,000 in fines.
DoorDash responded to the sickening situation in a statement:
‘While we empathize with the frustration of not receiving a tip, this behavior is unacceptable and falls far below the high quality experience we aim to provide.
The deliveryman was caught in video as he dropped off the food and stood back to take a picture for proof
‘We have removed the Dasher from our platform and have reached out to the customer directly to help make things right.’
According to DoorDash, their ‘dashers’ are paid through a base pay from DoorDash that ranges from $2-$10+ per delivery depending on the estimated duration, distance and desirability of the order.
‘Deliveries that are expected to take more time, that require dashers to travel a longer distance, and that are less popular with dashers have higher base pay’, the food-delivery’s website says.
If ‘dashers’ are only making $2 from the company on a delivery then it isn’t surprising that they’re angry enough to start spitting over a tip that brought the entire effort to $5.
This isn’t the first time a delivery person has been caught in the act of revenge food-spitting.
A lazy deliveryman in China was caught in the act after being told to bring the food to the door. The customer then said spit was dribbling down the bag and the bag smelled of saliva.
