Fans of 89-year-old pizza delivery guy raise $12K tip via TikTok

A Utah couple orders so much pizza that they request delivery from Derlin Newey by name. After posting clips of the friendly 89-year-old on TikTok, their followers raised a $12,000 tip for the affable driver.

While mainstream media is presenting this as a feel-good story (which it is), it might also be worth taking a step back and asking why an 89-year-old has to supplement his retirement benefits by delivering pizzas.
