Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess has shared an exchange between himself and a removals company – and it is pretty hilarious.

The actor shared a Yelp review he posted after attempting to move his furniture using a Brooklyn-based removals company.


Needless to say Burgess is extremely dissatisfied with the service he received reportedly from a rep at Franks Express.

He wrote: “My name is Tituss Burgess. Im an Emmy Nominated Actor forUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidt currently streaming on netflix. Thats besides the point.But watch it,” the review begins. “These guys are the absolute most UNPROFESSIONAL workers I have EVER DEALT WITH.”

Burgess continued: “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.”

He later tweeted to say that the man he had spoken to texted to call him a faggot, and later posted an Instagram video about the incident.

But a manager at Franks Expess, Guzel Gurva, spoke to EW to say that the company does not take bookings by phone, and that the man in the text messages is unknown to the brand.

“The problem is that we don’t know this guy… We never did that. I don’t know what company [he] did it with, but it’s definitely not Franks Express.”

But the actor has reiterated that it was Franks Express who he spoke to.

The company said they will contact Burgess to ask for proof that the man he spoke to was from Franks Express.

After singing an ode to ‘peeno noir’ in Kimmy Schmidt, earlier this year Burgess actually launched his own brand of Pinot Noir wine.

Neil Patrick Harris and Tituss Burgess are two of the stars involved in a new Public Service Announcement raising awareness of HIV and AIDS.
