Several Walmart workers were supposedly fired after using price scanners as guns in a video.
In a TikTok posted on Jan. 9, Walmart employees hold the store’s price scanners like guns set to a hip-hop song called “Dolo Stank.”
“They all got fired,” TikToker @mbkstank wrote in the video’s overlay text. The TikTok features eight Walmart employees.
The video received mixed reviews in the comments section. Some cautioned that @mbkstank should have included a flash warning, as the price scanners all flash at the camera. Others thought the employees didn’t deserve to be fired.
“Walmart is not in the position to fire anyone,” @allureelements commented. @sloodrtw agreed and questioned why the employees shown were fired.
“Y’all juss havin fun got fired over that,” @offixial.kxrio wrote.
Other TikTokers called Walmart out for its firing practices as well: TikToker @jaceeyoulaterwh0re went viral for saying that she was suddenly fired after her supervisors told her she was “such a great worker.”
Still, some commenters on @mbkstank’s TikTok thought that employees shouldn’t mess around on company time, regardless of how well the video turned out.
“This is a business not a [playground],” @marquirethearteest24 wrote.
“While they was playing on the job,” @cynful_69 commented before speculating that “Ppl was shoplifting” while the workers were busy creating the video.
“Work is not where you play at,” @terranceva2sc wrote.
The Daily Dot has reached out to @mbkstank and Walmart via email.
