A New York City landlord is in
hot water with TikTok users...
after she posted a video on the platform showing her taking packages from the lobby that supposedly belong to residents.
“My tenant is late on rent and is
avoiding me but has money to order,”
the captions in the TikTok read.
“So I take all their packages
until they pay up”.
As of May 5, the video has been
deleted, but Abbe Awosanya is
still facing a lot of scrutiny —.
despite claiming that
she was only joking.
As people pointed out that
obstructing mail is a federal offense.
Awosanya explained that the packages featured in the video were all hers.
“Thanks for the concern,” she reportedly replied to one comment, according to BuzzFeed.
“All my mail but it’s nice that yall only care about renters like landlords don’t have bills”.
The timing of Awosanya’s statement comes in tandem with nationwide calls for rent strikes.
New York state has suspended
evictions until at least June 20
