A shocking video has gone viral after it showed an irate employee at a Dollarama store in Canada harassing a customer for dropping his face mask to smell candles.

The state of hysteria over the Omicron variant has resulted in heightened restrictions for public spaces across the globe. In one TikTok video posted to Twitter, the aforementioned shopper was rudely accosted by a store employee who insisted that he remain masked while inside the establishment. He subsequently lost his composure when the man lowered his mask to smell candles on a shelf, with the latter remaining calm throughout the encounter caught on video.

The footage began with a young male customer explaining how he was trying to shop at a Dollarama store, while an employee was seen in the background shouting, "No pictures in the store, please!" The shopper responds by saying he's not taking a picture but recording his experience on video instead.

“Sir, you will not keep your mask up! Now it is up for the video. Please leave the store!” the store employee yells. “I was trying to smell these candles here to shop at Dollarama here,” the customer explains as he pulls his mask down to smell the candles, only to prompt another enraged employee to shout, "Put your mask up!"

“Unbelievable,” the customer comments as he begins to walk away from the aisle. "You guys are outrageous," he adds. He subsequently stops to capture the face of the employee who screamed at him. "Here, let me just show this guy’s face for the camera,” before pointing the camera at the employee.

A fellow shopper attempts to defend the young man and tells the employees, "I know that I won’t be shopping here again" after their unhinged reaction. By the end of the video, several customers are seen leaving the store in droves, possibly to shop in a calmer environment.

The Dollarama store and its employees were slammed and mocked on Twitter after user RastaRedPill shared the footage on the platform. However, their account was suspended shortly after.

"Mass psychosis," one tweeted.

"Where is this Dollarama store? I kinda wanna go there now for some fun," another commented.

"Fear and terror drive people to act irrationally; the store employees were clearly horrified, panicked....it's as though they had just witnessed a murder and the killer was coming for them next, or as though they were going over a waterfall in a ship and they were going to drown," someone else added.

"Little tyrants work at dollar stores too. This is finally their chance to wield authority," another chimed in.

Another video posted by the same Twitter user showed an employee at the checkout counter having a meltdown and berating customers who were not fully masked. The video was captioned "Mass Formation Psychosis," a phenomenon described by mRNA technology pioneer Dr Robert Malone during his appearance on comedian Joe Rogan's popular podcast. Malone compared the status quo to Germany in the early 20th century, when educated citizens inexplicably became Nazis, which he said was a form of mass societal insanity that historians had struggled to make sense of.
