*Terry Crews fans are blasting him for “cosplaying as a poor person” in a new Amazon recruitment ad that shows him working at a distribution center.
In the ad, Crews, 53, is seen wearing an Amazon uniform and packing orders with employees in a warehouse: The ad encourages people to apply for jobs at a company that has amazing benefits, flexible hours and paid college tuition.
As reported by The Daily Mail, Crews, who has an estimated net worth of $25 million, is accused of “cosplaying as a poor person” to push “Amazon propaganda.”

Political commentator Hasan Piker retweeted the video, writing “this is deranged man.”
“I heard Amazon was hiring a bajillion people and thought I’d take a look for myself,” Crews says in the ad, which premiered on TikTok.
In another scene, Crews gets excited when he sees someone driving a forklift in the warehouse. “Wait, I get to drive a forklift?” he asks.
According to the Amazon website, “eligible employees” can have up to “100 percent of tuition and fees (up to a yearly maximum)” paid for by the company.
While several Crews fans are calling him out for being a “sell-out,” others find the commercial hilarious. Check out some of the reactions below.

Amazon: We can’t afford to pay our workers more.
Also Amazon: We’re going to pay Terry Crews a boatload of money to come roleplay as a poor person for a few hours. https://t.co/QflTqy5j7a
