Twitter users are going wild over a clip showing a woman breaking out into a freestyle rap and dancing as she is being detained by a police officer.

“You about to lose yo job, ’cause you are detaining me, for nothing!!!” the woman says in the clip that began to spread on social media.

According to TMZ, the clip was made on June 3, and by the next day several DJs had dropped the phrase over a “twerkable beat.” The viral video is also receiving the meme treatment from Twitter users.

Amee Vanderpool, in a tweet that has since been deleted, wrote, “My mom and I are having this discussion about how much we love this as women. Aside from funny, this woman is the epitome of confidence, does not care about how she looks and knows she’s right.”

And user @aslama_v added, “This needs to be the new chant for protestors!! Love this woman, even the cop can’t keep a straight face.”

It’s unclear where the arrest occurred or why the hilarious woman is cuffed up. Even the cop struggles to hold back laughing at her antics. TMZ referred to the arrest as occurring in “Somewhere, USA.”

The most popular of the “You about to lose your job” remix videos appears to come includes footage from Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” music video and Childish Gambino’s insanely popular  “This is America.” The best part of the video below, is not the dancing Elmo, Beyoncé, or Dancing Pam from Martin, but the guest appearance from the late great John Witherspoon, who spells “J-O-B” toward the end of the megamix.

It also features images of the Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd.

“Why are you detaining me? You about to lose yo job,” the woman sings in the clip “You about to lose your job. Get this dance. You about to lose your job ’cause you are detaining me for nothing.”

In posting the song to his Instagram page, DJ iMarkkeyz tagged the account @Getthisdance, who has identified herself as the woman in the video.
