Midwest College’s Twitter mogul was fired from a job in New York City after he complained about bodegas

A college graduate has been fired from his first job in New York City after being attacked by a mob for complaining that it was difficult to shop for dinner at his local restaurant.

Reason reports that Griffin Green, 24, moved to the Bronx from Michigan last week for a new opportunity as a sales development representative with software company Outreach.

He took to TikTok to complain that the bodegas – corner stores – in his Bronx neighborhood stock only unhealthy instant foods, and that it was hard to shop properly there, compared to a bigger store like Kroger at home.

But hall watchers on Twitter quickly grabbed the clips, claiming they showed white privilege, with the cowardly employer caving to pressure from specialized accounts to terminate their employees.

He told Outreach Reason that Green was fired for sharing a job offer letter on social media, not for controversial bodega videos that earned him the nickname “Bodega Bro.”

But the post noted that Outreach was using that as a fig leaf to justify its decision to fire him for the harmless bodega clips.

The series of videos that sparked outrage online show Green walking around his Bronx neighborhood, moving to his new job, while attacking the local bodega and asking his viewers how he was supposed to prepare dinner and where he could find ‘big groceries’.

“Well, I just moved to New York and I’m going to go grocery shopping, and so I write like, ‘Grocery stores’ in my Apple Maps, and everyone I go to is… like this,” he told the camera in one video.

Midwestern college graduate Griffin Green, 24, who recently moved to the Bronx for a job, posted TikTok videos complaining about shopping in Bodegas, earning him the nickname “Bodega Pro.”

He told Outreach Reason that Green was fired for sharing the offer message on social media, not because of the controversial bodega videos that earned him the nickname.

“Like his brothers, this is not a grocery store,” he said, turning the camera to show one of the convenience stores. I try to have like eggs, yoghurt, cheese etc. Like, look at this place.

Green continues to walk his Bronx neighborhood and says he’s been to many people and doesn’t know what to do about dinner.

“Like I literally love five of those now, and like, I don’t know what I’m going to do for dinner. Like where are Krogers and Whole Foods? Like I’m about to eat f-king like cereal and ramen for dinner, like what f-k?”

The clip went viral after a Twitter user posted it where some said Green was exuding a white privilege to blow up bodegas, which are a staple in New York communities.

Blogger Perez Hilton – who is notorious for bullying stars including Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan on his website – has spin the gigs even more, by tweeting that the video sounded “racist”.

“I’m sure this ‘bro’ thought it was funny, but… has anyone else seen this as racist? Or just me?”

Dutch TikTok star De Carvalho shared in the video: “I mean, what, he’s been here for two days? And he found a way to make fun of the stores that many people in the community depend on.

More videos surfaced leading to more backlash on social media.

In one clip, which appeared to have appeared during the Pride period, Green commented on the number of gay people in New York, and asked if “being gay is just a thing now”.

In another report, he noted that he was wearing an NAACP jersey at the Bronx gym so that “those people” could feel it more.

In one video he said, ‘I’m in the Bronx for a few weeks, so I’m like the only white guy in this whole gym, so I got this NAACP shirt, so these people get on with me more’. The post has been reported.

“Well, I just moved to New York and I’m going to go grocery shopping, and so I write like, ‘Grocery stores’ in my Apple Maps, and everyone I go to is… like this,” he told the camera in one video.

The video Green posted of his offer speech and announcement of moving to New York surfaced and a Twitter user alerted the company.

The user wrote: ‘I don’t think it’s very interesting to have that kind of person representing your company’. “I would have reevaluated his job if I were you.”

The outreach program replied, ‘Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Upon investigation, we took prompt internal action in accordance with our company policies and in line with our core values. He is no longer an employee of Outreach.

The company said Green was fired for sharing the offer letter on social media, even though it was only visible for a few seconds.

“It is against company policy for employees to leak private and confidential information, reasons for termination,” Outreach’s vice president of communications told Reason. “We remain committed to building our culture that finds strength in our diversity, equality and inclusion – and a company where everyone can succeed.”

He told Green, who had just signed a one-year lease on an apartment in the Bronx, why he was fired on his second day of work. He asked for an opportunity to explain, but he refused.

‘People can be painted as these terrible people when they are really trying to explore new things,’ Green told Reason. “I was exploring New York for the first time…I didn’t know people were shopping for groceries in these corner stores.”

“It was my intention to make fun of myself for being a new person in town,” he said.

Green set his TikTok account to private but on Saturday night posted a new video that addressed the backlash and involved a group of graduates ordering food at a local restaurant.

Green posted a new video on TikTok Saturday night buying food in a local bodega and distributing it to the many homeless men in the area.

“If you came here from Twitter, you probably know me as ‘Bodega Bro’,” Green said. “So I came out private to show you guys what a Bodega Pro really is.”

Greene then loads up the bags of bacon, eggs, cheese rolls, and chopped cheese rolls he’d bought, along with Gatorade and fruit, and films himself distributing them to the many homeless men in the area.

In the video, Green adds that “if anyone is hiring in tech sales or needs a workout partner in New York,” let them know.
