(HorizonPost.com) – A New Jersey woman found herself out of a job after video footage showing her verbally attacking a group of German tourists on a train went viral on social media, the New York Post reported.
Brianna Pinnix, 30, was captured on video berating a group of Germans aboard a train bound for New York City, calling them “f*cking immigrants” and telling them to “get the f*ck” out of the country as her boyfriend struggled to rein her in.
Despite her drunken behavior, the German men appeared to take Pinnix’s outburst with a sense of humor. However, at one point, one of the men could be seen angrily getting out of his seat before sitting back down.
While it is unclear what prompted the outburst, New Jersey Transit told the UK Daily Mail, which first reported on the viral video, that it “strongly condemns” this type of behavior from passengers and said passengers should report similar incidents to members of the crew.
According to Pinnix’s Facebook account, dutifully uncovered by the New York Post, she is from Mahway, New Jersey, and graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in 2015.
All of Pinnix’s social media accounts, along with her LinkedIn profile, have since been removed.
Pinnix was employed by Capital Rx as a talent acquisition specialist.
A spokesperson for Capital Rx confirmed to the New York Post on Wednesday that she is no longer with the company.
In a statement to the Post, the spokesperson said Capital Rx has a “zero-tolerance policy” when it comes to “prejudicial or discriminatory behavior” on the part of employees, and after reviewing the circumstances of the video, the company “acted immediately” and fired Pinnix.
The spokesperson assured the Post that Pinnix’s words and actions aboard that train do not represent Capital Rx and that the company apologizes to “those who were hurt.”
