    Terry Crews Pretended To Be An Amazon Warehouse Worker In A New Commercial, And People Are Pissed

    Another day, another Amazon controversy.

    If you're on TikTok, you may have seen Amazon's latest commercial with millionaire actor Terry Crews.

    In case you missed it, here is the 30-second clip that was posted to Crews' TikTok account. The America's Got Talent host basically goes to the Amazon warehouse and discovers how ~amazing~ it is to work there. Of course this is all very ironic, considering the company has made headlines for unsafe working conditions and workers peeing in bottles.

    And yeah, people are not too happy about it. Here are some of the comments:

    TikTok comments dragging Terry Crews with one person saying "You're not gonna mention how Amazon exploits their workers for profit while paying them below industry standard"

    Twitter also had some things to say.

    Amazon: We can't afford to pay our workers more. Also Amazon: We're going to pay Terry Crews a boatload of money to come roleplay as a poor person for a few hours. https://t.co/QflTqy5j7a

    Many were quick to point out that Crews probably received a hefty check for the ad.

    Terry Crews prolly got paid more for this ad than the combined day wage of the entirety of that warehouse https://t.co/xkBLV0Q0dE

    According to Business Insider, Amazon workers are paid $18 an hour, or $35,000 a year.

    Others also criticized the actor for wearing a very pricey watch.

    Terry Crews did a propaganda video for Amazon while wearing a watch that costs as much as an Amazon worker makes in 6-12 months ($18k-39k) https://t.co/HiIDKcBUWs
