A Black officer with the Greensboro Police Department in North Carolina says he was fired last week after his supervisors became enraged over a TikTok video he made discussing police brutality weeks after George Floyd was killed during an arrest.

On Instagram, Ja'Quay Williams wrote that his bosses watched a video he made about Floyd and immediately put him under investigation for his social media use.

The GPD ultimately decided to fire Williams. He said he was "shocked, confused, angry" and felt like the termination was "extreme."

"A few months ago I started to post videos of humor on @TikTok in my police uniform. People loved the laughs, and joy I would bring to them on their days of watching me. Around that time, the horrific George Floyd video was out and as a black man I felt the need to use my new found platform to speak on what’s right and what’s wrong as I always did," he wrote.

"The video went viral. That same day I was spoke to about the video and how I shouldn’t post in uniform so I STOPPED. Those who know me personally know that I’ve been doing music forever (since elementary school) and my style of music is more of a conscious style. I talk on everything from depression, to suicide. So shortly after I made a video called hello America and boy they did not like that at all," he said.

Let’s clear the air!!! Tag @theshaderoom @hollywoodunlocked @worldstar @shaunking A few months ago I started to post videos of humor on @tiktok in my police uniform. People loved the laughs, and joy I would bring to them on their days of watching me. Around that time, the horrific George Floyd video was out and as a black man I felt the need to use my new found platform to speak on what’s right and what’s wrong as I always did. The video went viral. That same day I was spoke to about the video and how I shouldn’t post in uniform so I STOPPED. Those who know me personally know that I’ve been doing music forever (since elementary school) and my style of music is more of a conscious style. I talk on everything from depression, to suicide. So shortly after I made a video called hello America and boy they did not like that at all. They told me they was putting me on administrative leave until the investigation into my social Media was done. ——————————————— Fast Foward to yesterday (2 months later) they decided to terminate my employment with that police Department. I was shocked, confused, angry you name it. But to be honest as I stayed of the streets for 2 months I started to realize more and more that God will do what God feels is beneficial and you don’t argue with god, you remain content and push forward. Of course I feel like firing me was an extreme and I will look further into this NOW. ——————————————- I thank you all for your continous support for me after speaking up on what’s right and what’s wrong. Thank you share this video ???? #Jdwilliams #WOLFGANGJOC

Of course I feel like firing me was an extreme and I will look further into this NOW," Williams added. 

After his video racked up thousands of views, Williams appeared on Tamron Hall's show to discuss Floyd's killing. 

During the interview, Williams said his department's captain of internal affairs told him it was a violation of department policy to post videos with a police uniform on and that his superiors demanded he take the videos down. 

Williams complied and deleted the videos, but he said he started to receive messages from multiple outlets telling him they planned to write articles about them.
