Meanwhile, other TikTok users found the video amusing – despite the backlash.
A Woolworths spokesman has told 7NEWS.com.au that the supermarket is investigating the incident.
“We became aware of a video on social media that appears to be in one of our stores,” said the spokesman.
“We are currently examining the circumstances associated with this.”
The new TikTok video comes as supermarkets in parts of Australia have been flooded with panic buyers.
On Saturday, social media images showed chaotic scenes at Woolworth’s and Coles’ stores in Sydney and Wollongong in response to the NSW government’s two-week lockdown announcement.

Many shelves have been stripped of essential items, including toilet paper.
“Looks like panic buying to me. Does the virus just know not to go near grocery stores? ”One person wrote.
Meanwhile, shoppers in Darwin were also rushing to supermarkets and bottle stores to stock up on the Northern Territory’s 48-hour lockdown.
