A TikToker video has gone viral after she said her DoorDash delivery driver was forced to cancel her order due to a shooting at the restaurant.
In the now-viral video, user Ray (@ihaveasthma420) danced around while showing the text exchange between her and her delivery driver, Shakyra.
“Last night that was really my convo with my Dasher. She actually forgot the straws,” she wrote in the text overlay. The Daily Dot contacted Ray via TikTok comment.
In the screenshot, Ray asked her driver to get some straws and sweet and sour sauce. But when Shakyra answered, no one could have predicted her answer.
“I’m sorry hunni I’m about to cancel your order they’re shooting out here and I have to live for my child,” the driver wrote.
Ray’s TikTok had over 1.1 million views as of Wednesday.

So far it is unclear where or when the alleged shooting took place. But many people have expressed concern about what Shakyra has been going through.
“She was so nice too,” wrote one user with a crying face emoji. “I hope she is doing well.”
“That’s why she’s real,” added another.
The TikTok prompted a conversation about the safety concerns delivery drivers have to go through just to make a living.
“Crazy that she felt like she had to give you a reason to want to live more than get you your food,” commented one user. “Wait a minute, is her kid the only reason she doesn’t want to be shot? Damn,” added another with a crying emoji.
Viewers find it unfair that the woman had to justify why she canceled the customer’s order when she should have focused more on her safety.
Some viewers also didn’t like that Ray didn’t say “please” or “thank you” in her request for more straws and sauce.
“You can say ‘please,'” commented one viewer. “She’s out there dodging bullets for you and you can’t say please or thank you?” wrote another user.
“You should put the stuff in your original order, not bother the dasher for it,” commented a third.
Ray said she ended up getting her order from another driver.
“Some king named Mohammed picked it up, but it was 45 minutes late from the original time lmfao,” Ray shared.
