American soccer icon Carli Lloyd received an almighty backlash on Twitter after publicly criticising a FedEx delivery driver.

The 39-year-old jumped on social media to slam the company after a number of packages delivered to her house got soaked after being left out in the open.

She questioned why the delivery driver couldn't have walked an "extra five steps" to place the packages undercover in her porch and accused the worker of not caring about their job.

"Ringing in the new year with soaked ruined packages," Lloyd wrote in a since deleted tweet, along with a photo of the soaked packages.

"Guess the extra five steps from our @FedEx driver to place under the covered section of the porch was a hard task to endure.

"#noonecaresabouttheirjobanymore."

But rather than getting messages of support, Lloyd was mobbed by social media users who accused her being "entitled".

"Guess the 5 minutes of drive time that it would take @CarliLloyd to pick up her s*** at the post office instead of having it conveniently shipped to her doorstep was too hard a task to endure," one person wrote.

Some even suggested the USWNT legend had no right to complain about someone who might be overworked or underpaid – but Lloyd hit back.

"Overworked? Since you know them personally … that's right," she wrote.

"There are plenty of other jobs to choose from if they feel overworked from not being able to do that job.

"I take pride in every job I do. Big or small. You do it right to the best of your ability."

Lloyd later revealed that FedEx had "taken care" of the situation, and thanked them for having "great customer service," but some of her followers still weren't happy.

"Imagine blasting some low-paid, overworked delivery person on Twitter and then making yourself to be the victim," a furious Twitter user said.

Despite the bombardment of angry tweets, Lloyd insisted that she wasn't going to let the situation get the better of her.

"You guys really thought you could get under my skin that bad? If that was the case I would have left [Twitter] 10 years ago."
