You do not want to mess with Tituss Burgess (hey, it rhymes!). Burgess, who plays Tituss Andromedon on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, recently went HAM on a moving company that made the mistake of using a gay slur when dealing with him. Come on, it's 2016, what gives, moving company?
Burgess left a searing (and still somehow hilarious, because that's his brand of genius) Yelp review for Franks Express, a Brooklyn-based moving company, who not only failed to show up to move his couch, but also stated they had a "no [Yelp] review, no show" policy. According to Burgess' Twitter account, the moving company responded to the actor's inquiry with a homophobic insult. Oh, boy. That was a bad idea.
Entertainment Weekly's version of the review, which according to Yelp is currently under investigation (since, as you can see, a whole lot of folks have weighed in with their own one-star reviews since Burgess has) reads:
My name is Tituss Burgess. Im an Emmy Nominated Actor for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt currently streaming on netflix. Thats besides the point.But watch it. These guys are the absolute most UNPROFESSIONAL workers I have EVER DEALT WITH.
I called this man this morning. We chatted. He said he could move my couch at 1pm which was the time I requested. 1:30 still no movers. I called back and he says I will give you a discount…I said ok. He says but you have to post a review on yelp. I said when you complete the job i will complete the review. FOR THE FOLLOWING I HAVE THE ENTIRE TEXT EXCHANGE SAVED. He texts saying no review no show. This went on for about 45 minutes. It Completely threw my entire day. I called him about 9 times but he wouldnt pick up but he somehow was capable of texting. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. Im going to post this to twitter to my instagram to my facebook. You messed with the wrong Queen. #franksexpress #Igotcha #lizaminelli #Iamgonnamakeavideoaboutyoubecauseofthedeepangerifeel #DONOTTHREATENMEIWILLWIN.
And just to cover all his bases, he posted an Instagram video, too.
Frank's is claiming that they're not the company Burgess was dealing with, and that they don't take moving requests over the phone, which is odd, since their phone number is listed on Yelp. But okay. Good luck with all that, Frank.
