“I have not heard anything further and I haven’t investigated any further,” he told the New York Post‘s Page Six on Thursday. “It was an unfortunate situation, but I don’t suffer fools.”
The actor added, “I’m a lot more direct with what I need right away and things percolate and move on at the rate that they should.”
The situation went down in July, when Burgess used a New York City moving and delivery company called Franks Express, after which he detailed his experience on Yelp. “These guys are the absolute most UNPROFESSIONAL workers I have EVER DEALT WITH,” he wrote in part.
After the ordeal went viral, Franks Express offered a formal apology on its website, stating, “We are very sorry for fatal misunderstanding. But we have never spoken with you by phone. We never reserve our trucks and crews via phone. It is rule!”
It’s as Burgess says on Kimmy Schmidt: “I’m pretty but tough, like a diamond — or beef jerky in a ball gown.”
