Actor, rapper, and all-around entertaining Twitter user Ice T pointed one of the lesser considered perils of gig economy after an Amazon Flex delivery nearly gone awry on Tuesday.

Ice-T put Amazon on notice Tuesday.

The star of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - which films in NY - tweeted: "Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries".

In a separate post, a social media user asked Ice-T if the delivery driver was wearing a uniform. "Just sayin. That ... ain't safe". He offered some solid advice that the e-commerce giant should seriously consider: give drivers a vest that says "AMAZON DELIVERY".

Cuomo sign New York's legislation and should Democrats then request the president's taxes, it's still unclear what happens next. Andrew Cuomo will need to sign the legislation to make it official, but it is unclear whether he will do so.

"Just sayin...thanks for the suggestion", Clark wrote. He just noticed someone near his house dressed in regular street clothes, which led to him almost firing off a weapon at the individual. "I ain't mad at them".

"Lots of innovations coming on this and many that already exist to help you track your package and delivery on a map", he added, referring to the company's Map Tracking feature.

The Amazon Help department also got back to Ice, tweeting him: "Thanks for reaching out with your feedback!"

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
