In a follow-up video, @kdimagery360 acknowledges that her video sparked a debate, saying: “OK, OK. Here’s the debate: Is it your boss’ business what you do when you call in sick?”

Many agreed that it’s not an employer’s business about what an employee does with their time when they call out of work.

One TikToker’s stitch with @kdimagery360’s video went particularly viral.

“I would’ve emailed that boss back and said ‘What about it?’ I told you I was too sick to go to work, I never said I was too sick to go to the Golden State game, baby. Mind your business that’s paying you,” @yuckieth0t says in the stitch, telling @kdimagery360 in the caption: “And that’s how you handle that fren.”
