British Airways sacks cabin crew over racist comments on Nigerians

27 September 2017

British Airways on Tuesday dismissed a flight attendant who posted a Snapchat video in which she made racist remarks about Nigerian passengers, according to the Daily Mail.

A friend of Ms Wickenden has defended the flight attendant's video, saying: 'She's not racist, it was a joke between two friends.

However, she told Daily Mail that she was framed, and her co-workers egged her on to say what she said.

And while Joanne's had journalists at her doorstep today (she's refused to comment), it wasn't until Dapper Laughs was a household name, willingly performing gigs in a bid to become famous, that the press went hunting for his personal details.

In the footage, she said: "All Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades'"Joanne Wickenden during the one-minute clip revealed how she was going to deal with passengers on the six-hour flight, Dailymail reports".

British Airways confirmed it had launched an investigation into the footage.

"I'm here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow lifejacket, and point out the exits and hand out chicken or beef".

"The upside is that I'm going to Nigeria tonight and there's going to be bare BBC".

British Airways has released a statement to the Daily Mirror today saying the stewardess involved, Joanne Wickenden, was "no longer employed" by the company but would not confirm if Wickenden was sacked or resigned after a two-hour meeting with the airline's bosses overnight. "They were recording me and sent it around to our friends".

"Big d**** like this swinging from side to side". "We are investigating this video", a spokesperson said.

In it, the unnamed stewardess says the passengers on the plane, who were Nigerian, were going to be asking for upgrades.

"I want beef. And I'm just gonna be there like, 'Sorry sir, we ran out of beef".

An airline source told MailOnline: 'My friend was horrified.

"We will not tolerate offensive comments about our customers and will always take the appropriate action".
