Tyler, The Creator still hates the manager who fired him from Starbucks

Posted on


Tyler, The Creator stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and told host Jimmy Kimmel about his time working at FedEx and Starbucks. The rap star only worked at the shipping company for a week and four days (“FedEx was so depressing. The spirit there was just older dudes just pushing boxes, but okay with it”), but spent two and a half years at Starbucks before getting fired by a new manager.

“She hated on me, and she fired me, and I hope she’s watching because I still hate her,” Tyler told Kimmel about the woman. “Her firing me was the greatest moment of my life.”

Kimmel later asked Tyler if he was a good employee. “I was nice, I was cool with people. I liked talking to people. I didn’t kiss ass to the people who worked there and the manager. I think she found that intimidating,” Tyler said. “Also I was the youngest there, so I had that attitude of worst comes to worst, I can find another job. I think she didn’t like that.”
