UNION (Union Co.) – A take-out and delivery restaurant and a disgruntled customer each say the other engaged in the practice of “doxxing” or posting an adversary’s personal information online , following a delayed order earlier this month.
NJ.com reports that on April 7, Union Get Stuffed Jersey restaurant, which specializes in stuffed pretzels and pretzel pizza among a large menu, received a delivery order from a Montclair resident who goes by the name Joe Stephen on Facebook, but identified himself as Joseph Baranoff in a text exchange with the restaurant.
The customer contacted the restaurant about 45 minutes after ordering to check on the status of his food, and after a brief back and forth received a response from a person identified by NJ.com as the owner of Get Stuffed, Sandy Wallace, saying “would you like us to have someone jump in a helicopter for you.”
“His [sic] rush hour and it’s raining outside…don’t be an asshole,” read another response from the restaurant, according to screenshots posted by Joe Stephen on Facebook.
Townsquare Media New Jersey’s chief meteorologist Dan Zarrow predicted on the morning of April 7 that “there could be showers, resulting in puddles and minor flooding” that afternoon.
NJ.com reported that Get Stuffed’s food finally arrived about an hour after ordering, but the encounter didn’t end there.
Some of the customer’s initial screenshots posted to Facebook included the delivery driver’s phone number, as well as his own address, but NJ.com reported that those images had been removed.
The client’s address and phone number were later published by Get Stuffed but also since deleted, according to the NJ.com report.
The client has since filed a police report and met with an attorney, according to NJ.com. And for its part, Get Stuffed made light of the swap by saying it would be giving away “helicopter” pizza, but that post was deleted as well.
