Joanne Wickenden, the British Airways stewardess who posted on Snapchat a rant about Nigerian passengers has been sacked.
According to Daily Mail, BA, after a 2-hour meeting with Wickenden, released a statement saying:
She no longer works for British Airways. We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways.
23-year-old Wickenden told friends that the video was only a joke, adding: “I am not a racist.”
However, she told Daily Mail that she was framed, and her co-workers egged her on to say what 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.
A friend of Wickenden also claimed colleagues wanted her to impersonate what went on in the flight, which was why she made the video.
“I don’t want to fly anymore,” Wickenden said.
