New York actor and comedian Michael Rapaport freak out in a Tuesday social media post that reveals a purported shoplifter brashly walking out of a Manhattan Rite Aid.

“I can’t believe I’m seeing this s—t,” the “I am Rapaport”

pod-caster is heard saying over the video.

“This f—king guy just filled his two bags up with everything in Rite Aid, right here on 80th [Street] and First Avenue is walking down the street like s–t is Gucci. I was watching him the whole time.”

The alleged thief is carrying bags as he walks by a security guard and out onto the street.

“Looking me in my face like ‘what’s good?’”

Rapaport claims.

“My man just went Christmas shopping in January. He had the condoms, the shampoo.”

The actor replicated the Christmas shopping remark and tagged Mayor Eric Adams’ account in a caption for the video, which had over 132,000 views by Tuesday night.

“Duke just went CHRISTMAS SHOPPING at @riteaid,”

Rapaport wrote.

“I’m TRIPPING this happened in broad day like it was nothing.”

The store position is set to close Feb. 15

“because of this, leaving workers JOBLESS,”

the actor asserted in the caption.

“@ericadamsfornyc YO,”

he closed.

“Saved by the Bell”

actor Mario Lopez replied was among the many commentators, saying

“Dude looked up at Security and said… ‘Sup?’”

An NYPD spokesperson said there was no report on file for the incident as of Tuesday night. A Rite Aid spokesperson didn’t directly respond to an email from The Post.

The video is the newest making the rounds on social media that reveal alleged shoplifters making bold thefts at retail and grocery stores that critics blame on soft approaches to trial that have energized people to low-level crimes.

Reported store losses are on the increase, with $719,458 losses per $1 billion in sales in 2020, as stated by the National Retail Federation.
