Racicot told the Edmonton Journal that he had already handed in the paperwork to leave and secured another job before his viral exit.

“I don’t regret what I did. I went into this knowing what will happen,” he said.

A representative for Walmart told the Edmonton Journal that it would address Racicot’s video internally.

“We are aware of the video circulating online and are disappointed by this incident. Respect for all individuals including our associates and customers is a core value at Walmart,” the representative said. “We are looking into this matter and will address it internally as required.”
