Shana Raglan’s resignation from Walmart went viral on Twitter.
The Walmart employee recorded herself making an announcement over the intercom. In this announcement, she began to call out all of her coworkers and employers as she said: “Attention all Walmart shoppers, associates, and managers. 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.” She went further, claiming that Walmart ‘fires Black associates for no reason”. Raglan continued calling out her coworkers, pointing out that racism is not the only problem: “And Jimmy from Sporting Goods, Joseph the cashier, Larry from the Garden Center: You are all perverts, and I hope you don’t talk to your daughters the way you talk to me.” Finally, she concluded with “I f***ing quit.”
Raglan’s video can be seen below:

For those who doubt the legitimacy of Raglan’s video, a Walmart customer also recorded parts of the resignation:

Twitter users had mixed feelings about Raglan’s resignation video.
While some praised Raglan’s bravery, others noted that she may not be able to find another job as a result of this video. Moreover, many claimed that an investigation into Walmart’s management is needed; otherwise, Raglan could be accused of (and sued for) slander.
Some were grateful that she stepped up and pointed out the discrimination:
Not all heroes wear capes… Most of them are underpaid, discriminated and oppressed.
Thank you for standing tall and represent!

I worked for Walmart for four years as Cap 2 and Cap 1.
Management would hire people that would quit within two months and wouldnt hire anyone for three or four months and run skeleton crews into the dirt. Its backwoods backwards there.
Wouldnt work there again.

Some thought that she did not think of the consequences at the time:
Very professional 👏 this is a good way not to get hired again 👏👏

Had you considered that since this went viral; the employer for the career you want might see this & remember how you exited the previous position? While it may have felt good in the moment; it was actually quite unprofessional of you making you no better than those you spoke of

Others explained that comments cannot be made until an investigation has been conducted:
Allegations need looked into for sure, but for now it's just baseless assertions that anyone (including someone who wasn't a good worker) could make who is mad at the company. If it's true Walmart needs to act – if it's not true and she is slandering ppl – they should sue her.

It’s only slander if it can be proven to be untrue. I have a feeling if she had those issues other people there have had similar experiences. If not there, I am sure she could find other employees that have experienced harassment. Slander case is never happening.
