A Canadian woman who posted a video on social media ridiculing "freedom fighters" and threatening to use her powers to take away their employment prospects is now under investigation.

The video was posted to an account from tammyandtwins on TikTok and quickly went viral when it was also posted to Twitter.

"I'm a recruiter. It's a small, small, small industry. It's smaller than you think! Smaller than HR!" said the woman on the video.

"So, if you're looking for a job, or maybe trying to keep a job, maybe, just maybe, think about what you're putting on social media!" she continues.

"Again, freedom fighters, I know you're not really big with stats, and you know facts aren't your thing! But what I can tell you, what is a fact, is that recruiters talk, and recruiters like the majority of Canada, don't agree with you," she adds.

"Do you know what means? Do you have any guesses, do you have any guesses what that means?" she asks. "What that means is that if you need a job, you might not get one! If you want to keep a job, you might not get to do that!"

She goes on to say that HR people are good at documenting incidents and firing people they dislike.

"Recruiters are watching. HR is watching! Everywhere. And we hate you! We hate you so much! And you think we can't do anything, but we can! We have the power! Always!" she concluded. "Remember that. It doesn't matter if there's a f***ing man at the top of your HR department, it's run by women. And it's run by angry women just like me.”

She concluded the video by swearing expletives at the people she was addressing and mocking their families.

The Ontario-based Human Resources Professional Association responded to a tweet about the video on Monday with a statement saying that they were investigating whether she had broken their code of conduct.

"HRPA is aware of this video post by one of its regulated members and does not condone or endorse in any way the statements made about HR practice therein," the statement read. "Further, HRPA is reviewing this matter to determine if there has been a breach of its Rules of Professional Conduct."

The Canadian HR Reporter noted that a LinkedIn profile of an HR manager appearing to be the woman was deleted soon after the video went viral.

Here's the video of the TikTok threat:

That one instance of the video garnered over 2.6 million views.
