Air Hostess Sacked Over Racist Snapchat Rant Against Nigerian Passengers Says She Was Set Up.



British Airways has sacked a stewardess named Joanne Wickenden, who posted a racist Snapchat rant attacking Nigerian passengers, after she was called in for a two-hour meeting with bosses.



Joanne Wickenden sparked outrage after recording the racist clip in her BA uniform before flying from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday night.

In a statement on Tuesday, the airline said “she no longer works for British Airways,” adding: “We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways.

The 23-year-old, who wants to be an actress, told friends, “I am not a racist” and claimed the sickening video was just a joke.

She said: “I have been framed by another BA employee. They were encouraging me, egging me on to say things. They were recording me and sent it around to our friends.

She added: “I don’t want to fly anymore.”
A friend said that the other colleague wanted her to impersonate what goes on on the flight.

Joke or not,she should have known better to be careful with such utterances. And she was even in her uniform. Very expensive. It cost her her Job. Too bad.

Seems she was already tired of flying any way...

For her to have donned her uniform and said all that she said(her facial expressions and gesticulations was just something else! Soo mocking!) left me utterly shocked! Like was she looking to be fired???😳

Then it kicks in as it dawns on me she wasn't looking to be fired. She donned her uniform(who does that???) and said all those things she said and that's totally against work ethics. Insulting your customers. Not a smart thing to do.

I am glad she has Bn fired!

People should learn to face the consequence of their action in peace. They were encouraging you to say things, so you are a child ryt? Or dont you know d laws guiding your job? Better luck with your next job.

If ever she is saying the truth that is why is always good to have a mind of ur own.I think this should serve as a big lesson to her.

Smiling, its crazy how you do foolish things to pls frnds and end up this way. She should have been wise. How come no one else said anything, just her in the video and she still thought it a joke ?

We all poke fun at our customers,bosses etc. But we are smart enough not to record,especially wearing our uniforms and post on social media.
The girl is obviously very immature and daft. No incling as to what work and professional ethics is.
Nigerians on plane ehnnn,me sef shame on their behalf. You will always see a difference when there are plenty Nigerians on a flight. Always rowdy,carrying hand luggages that look like suitcase and embarrasing themselves. Plane will land,with seat belt sign still on,they are already standing and fighting with their luggage.

You are so learned and well travelled yet use "luggages" What you described above I have witnessed from other nations, not just Nigerians.
