A Midwestern college graduate who shifted to the Big Apple from Michigan last week to fill up a position of sales development representative with the software company Outreach has been fired from his job. The company's decision came after he posted a TikTok video about not being able to find good food at the city's bodegas. The video was widely criticized, with several internet users calling him a racist.

24-year-old Griffin Green, known as 'Bodega Bro' on TikTok, started the video by saying, “OK, so I just moved to New York and I’m going to go grocery shopping, and so I type in like, ‘grocery stores,’ on my Apple Maps, and every f–king one I go to … they’re like this s–t.” “Like bro, that’s not a grocery store. I’m trying to get, like eggs, yogurt, cheese, s–t like that. Like, look at this place,” he narrated as he continued to film the video. He further stated, “Like I’ve literally been to like five of those now, and like, I don’t know what the f–k I’m about to do for dinner. Like where are the Krogers and the Whole Foods at? Like I’m about to eat f–king like cereal and ramen for dinner, like what the f–k?”

As per NY Post, Green’s TikTok page @grifgreen20 has since switched to private mode. The display picture shows the man in a football uniform. His Twitter profile says he is from Rochester, Michigan. According to Reason, critics are calling him a “Chad from the Midwest,” a derogatory term for white males who are unable to understand other cultures. His TikTok videos are private but clips of the original video are circulating on Twitter.


Many called him a racist after the clips went viral on different social media platforms. One user said, "I’m sure this “bro” thought he was being funny, but... did anyone else view this as racist? Or just me?" Another questioned the company, "Do you often hire racist employees?"



Outreach later responded, “Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Upon investigation, we took swift internal action in accordance with our company policies and in alignment with our core values. He is no longer an employee of Outreach.”


Green confirmed in a tweet that he was fired. He said, “If you’ve been following me, you know I got fired for trash. I’m stuck in NY with a 1 year lease and not sure how to pay the rent. If you want to help your boy, donate using the link in this tweet.”
