An Apple employee is alleging that the company threatened to fire her after she posted a TikTok video giving technical advice to another user on the app. As reported by The Verge, the employee, Paris Campbell, created the video in response to a someone who had posted about first losing her iPhone at Coachella before receiving texts threatening to sell her personal information on the black market if she didn’t disconnect her Apple ID from it.

Her video went viral, and on Friday, Campbell said her manager called her telling her to take the video down or she’d face disciplinary action “up to and including termination,” The Verge reports. She said she was specifically told she breached Apple’s policy by identifying herself as an Apple employee and posting online about technology related to the company.

Campbell said she pressed her manager and asked what the company would do if she didn’t comply with the request, but she said he amended his initial comment and said he’d get back to her, though he hasn’t yet. Campbell posted another video three days later clearly and publicly identifying herself as an Apple employee and announcing that she was currently waiting to find out if she was going to be fired or not.

She also said that she didn’t breach any sort of company confidentiality through the app, which Apple’s policy prohibits. Campbell, who told The Verge she’s worked at Apple for six years, said she posted about security advice that was already public knowledge. Apple did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
