·3-min read

A woman appears to have quit her job at a supermarket in the most spectacular and public way possible.

Shana, who goes by shanaquiapo on TikTok, shared a video of herself on the social-media platform of how she apparently quit her job at US supermarket chain Walmart.

She shared the video just three days ago and it has already racked up 17.4 million views.

“Attention all Walmart shoppers, associates and managers,” Shana says in the video into the store’s intercom.

“My name is Shana from cap 2 and I just wanna say, come on here and say Henry is a racist, stinky p***k, Giovanna is racist, Elias is a p***k of a manager.”

Shana then goes on to allege the supermarket chain “fires Black associates for no reason” and treats employees like “s**t” before calling out more of her co-workers.

“And Jimmy from sporting goods, Joseph the cashier, Larry from garden centre – you are all perverts, and I hope you don’t talk to your daughters the way you talk to me,” she said before giving a sincere shout-out to Arielle who gave her the job when she needed it.

Videos from inside the Walmart where Shana works show people on the floor reacting to Shana’s message which played through the intercom.

A group of Walmart employees are seen in the aisles laughing as Shana announces she has quit.

On her Twitter account, Shana said she had been “absolutely miserable for a year and seven months” and described the job as “toxic”.

Speaking to Daily Dot, Shana explained she would not have quit so spectacularly if it wasn’t for her husband.

“He made it possible for me to even quit in the first place,” she said.

“And out of everything I’ve ever done, I’m just thankful that everyone is noticing this thing, and it’s a good thing against a bad company.”

Many of the comments on Shana’s TikTok were positive and in support of her bold move against the company.

“Now that’s how you quit,” someone said.

On Twitter, in response to Shana, one person called her a “hero” for what she did.

“I quit Walmart after 12 years this year back in July and you did what I wanted to do for years, you're my hero,” they said.

In a statement to Yahoo News Australia, Walmart spokesperson, Anne Hatfield, said the supermarket is looking in to the claims Shana made in the video.

“Walmart is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace and we take every allegation very seriously. We have spoken with the person in the video and are actively looking into her claims,” Ms Hatfield said.

“Walmart does not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in any aspect of our business.”
