A viral TikTok shows a Walmart employee launching into a blistering tirade against her allegedly racist, sexist co-workers and quitting her job over the store’s loudspeaker.
Shana Ragland (@shanaquiapo) uploaded the video of her cathartic, minute-long address to Twitter and TikTok over the weekend. Until this weekend, she worked in Walmart’s Cap 2 department, which ostensibly involves unloading and organizing freight and stocking merchandise. But it sounds like Ragland’s position included a lot of drawbacks that weren’t listed in her job description.
“Attention all Walmart shoppers, associates, and managers,” Ragland begins her viral address. “My name is Shana from Cap 2, and I just want to come on here and say Henry is a racist, stinky prick. Giovanna is racist. Elias is a prick of a manager. This company fires Black associates for no reason. This company treats their employees like shit, especially Cap 2.”
She’s not done yet: “And Jimmy from sporting goods, Joseph the cashier, Larry from garden center: You are all perverts, and I hope you don’t talk to your daughters the way you talk to me.”
Ragland ends her address—and her employment at Walmart—with one grand, all-encompassing sign-off: “Fuck the managers, fuck this company, fuck this position, and fuck that big, lazy bitch Chris Price. I fucking quit.”
The scorched-earth loudspeaker announcement has earned 3.7 million views on TikTok since it was uploaded a day ago, and Ragland has received plenty of support in the comments.
“DID SHE STUTTER THO? Yeaa… a bit BUT HEY SHE SAID NOTHING BUT STRAIGHT FACTS,” one TikToker commented.
“I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THAT YOU JUST DID THAT. ROLE MODEL,” another user wrote.
Ragland, for her part, has been taking the newfound attention in stride and is happy to shed light on some of the company’s indiscretions.
“It’s been crazy obviously. But none of it would be happening if it weren’t for my husband,” she tells the Daily Dot. “He made it possible for me to even quit in the first place. 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.”
