In a video with over 1.5 million views, TikToker Vertell Davis (@vertelldavis) shared a TikTok of her confronting the bouncer at her apartment complex for eating a slice of her pizza.
“I pay 3,000 a month to live in a luxury building just for my bouncer to eat my Uber Eats,” reads the caption.

Davis, who remained calm throughout the video, asked the man why a slice of her pizza was missing. Eventually, she found out he was the one who ate the piece from her Uber Eats order.
“Why did you eat my food?” she asks the porter in the clip. The man, whose answers are difficult to understand, said something about not knowing it was her meal and that it had passed a “certain time”.
“I’m pretty sure that could probably get you fired. I won’t even lie,” she says. “I won’t say anything but how, that sucks because I’m freaking hungry.”
She explains that she went to the gym and then came down to pick up her food. The bouncer acted like he didn’t know where their food was, Davis says, but ended up getting the pizza box from the back.
The TikToker says she should give him CashApp as compensation after saying he could just have the other piece too.
“Honestly, it’s okay. Honestly, because you might have been hungrier than me because you ate someone else’s food. This is crazy to me. You didn’t have to sit here and lie to me,” she continues.
“Oh my goddamn bro…” she said, ending the video. “How the hell?!?”
In the comments, users shared their opinion on the situation.
“You gave him too much benefit from the doubts in my opinion,” said one user.
“There’s ‘I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed,'” commented another.
“You’re better than me because I would have gone straight to this leasing office as soon as it opened,” said a third user.
In an update video, Davis revealed that the bouncer reported himself to not get as much trouble when Davis reported him — which she hadn’t intended.
She explains that she handled the situation calmly because she had too much to lose as an entrepreneur and influencer.
“I was sitting there and I was like, ‘You know what, if you’re sitting here and eating someone else’s food, you might not have money to buy food,'” she says. “So that was my thought process…”
Before confronting the bouncer, Davis said she reported the missing food to Uber Eats, which refunded her the money. But that’s how she found out that the food had been delivered and that someone had taken it away.
As for why Davis didn’t report the man, she says she understands life is tough right now.
“It’s hard for everyone right now with jobs and everything that’s going on,” she concludes. “I don’t want to fire anyone. We’re going through a recession. Shit is hard enough as it is.”
