Say it isn’t
LA Food truck owner, Chris Bautista (known as @bautistud on TikTok) went “viral” for “exposing” Stephanie Courtney (the actress known as Flo from the Progressive commercials) as “freaking rude.” Bautista stitched a TikTok of @rytoast10 asking, “Tell me about a time when a celebrity was rude to you.” Before mentioning the actress, Bautista says he has served many celebrities, including Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“But the one celebrity who was rude to me - barely even a celebrity - was Flo from Progressive,” he said. “Flo, the insurance person with the makeup and the red lipstick. She was freaking rude.” Wow Chris, that description was detailed and specific...but I digress.
According to him, Courtney walked up to his food truck with three assistants. One was holding an umbrella for her, another was holding her beverage and the third assistant spoke on her behalf.
The speaking assistant asked Bautista what was available on the menu and he directly replied to Courtney, who ignored him. While the assistant ordered for her, Bautista said he offered the actress different options for the order, and once again she ignored him. The assistant then asked Courtney the same question regarding her order and then relayed her answer back to Bautista.
“She refused to talk to me because I was service,” Bautista said. He ended his video by joking, “You know what if I was you, I’d switch to GEICO,” and flashed a peace sign.
Flo IRL when you try speaking to her:
