The TikToker Killa Cure (@iam_rockcity) recorded himself leaving his Walmart name tag in what appears to be his office. In the video, he reads the phrase “Our people make the difference” branded on his nametag.

“I tried,” he says. “You didn’t let me make the difference.”

Then, he sets his nametag down and walks out of the store, yelling “fuck this place” on his way out.

“My time has come! Sorry not sorry!” the video’s on-screen text overlay reads. The TikToker doesn’t share any specific reasoning for why he decided to quit his job at Walmart, but according to his previous videos, the TikToker was vocal and critical of the billion-dollar corporation and the way the company treated its employees. He had also previously gone viral for issuing a public service announcement to customers who were impatient when the AutoCare department was short-staffed. In that video, he claimed “it wasn’t his fault Walmart doesn’t make enough billions to hire somebody for the counter.”
