A Woolworths staffer has come under fire for mocking a shopper's outfit in a TikTok video.

TikTok user @tom6765 shared the video titled "don't you dare come into my store looking like this" over the weekend, where it was quick to catch the attention of other users.

The short video shows the TikToker zooming in on an unsuspecting shopper who is wearing thongs and jeans together.

Green-faced "sick" emojis are overlaid on the footage, while a voiceover says "immediately no". The TikToker then videos himself closing the store's doors.

It appears the video has since been deleted.

Some users took to the comments to agree that jeans and thongs should not be worn together, joking that the TikToker should call the "fashion police".

This is not the first time supermarket customers have come under fire for their fashion choices either.

One US expat recently claimed barefoot supermarket customers were a "culture shock", while a Sydney woman claimed she was turned away from a Woolworths store for wearing thongs.

TikToker slammed for video: 'Be better'

Many other users have been quick to label the video as "discrimination", adding scathing jabs in the comments section.

"If only we knew which store so we could all do this just to make a point. It's not ok to judge other people like that," one user wrote.

"Seriously just do your job, judging customers by what they wear IS NOT in your job description. Be better," said another.

"What kind of punk films a customer while working?" added a third.

The TikToker has also posted other videos on his channel where he dances behind a stock trolley claiming: "I will probably get in trouble".

In another clip he mouths along to a sound-bite, saying, "I do not have time for this", when referring to customers who come in right before closing time.
