Walmart 'Karen' Tells Boy 'Get Out My Store' After Accusing Him of Stealing

A Walmart customer has shared the moment a "Karen" worker ordered him to leave the store, after accusing him of shoplifting while trying a shirt on.

TikTok user @uglahnose posted the clip 14 hours ago, and it has gained over 2 million views.

"I was trying a shirt on at Walmart and Karen thought I was stealing," he wrote on screen.

In the video, the boy can be seen trying on a shirt in the clothing section, filming himself to see what it looked like.

"Take that shirt off and put your shirt back on and get steppin'," said a woman as she approached the customer.

Clearly confused by the order, the boy looked over at her. "That's a nice shirt. Take it off, put your shirt back on and get out of my store," she continued.

"What are you talking about? I'm not even trying to steal, I'm just trying it on," he responded.

The woman, who is assumed to be a worker at the store, replied: "Really? Because that's a tag right there, 'extra large.'"

"I know, I'm just trying it on," he said, gesturing to the camera. "Mmm okay, well put your shirt back on, put it on, and take the shirt off and get out," she replied.

The customer pointed out that he was even filming himself, indicating that he wasn't shoplifting, but the woman simply responded: "Okay, get out."

"You have our shirt on, what do you mean why," she said after the young man asked why he needed to leave.

"I'm trying it on. Look, the video's on," he pointed out before cutting the video.

After some viewers accused the TikTok user of faking the video, he further explained the context of the situation, writing: "This isn't staged. I went with my dad to Walmart so he could buy groceries and I went to the clothing section to look for some clothes. The dressing rooms were closed, so I assumed I could just put it on. Then this random lady walked up on me."

With some left confused as to why the woman, who referred to Walmart as "my store" wasn't in a uniform, others speculated she could be a loss prevention officer.

"Would a person really steal, stand there and record it?" wrote one TikTok user.

"Seriously, who would steal something and leave the tag on," added another.
