British Airways has sacked Joanne Wickenden, a Stewardesses who posted a racist Snapchat rant attacking Nigerian passengers. The racist clip which sparked outrage was recorded with her uniform before flying from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday. The 23- year- old who wants to be an actress, in reaction to her racist clip claimed it was just a joke and she was being set up by another BA employee as they encouraged her to make the recording.
The airline in a statement on Tuesday said, “we expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways.”

In the expletive-filed video footage which was captioned, ‘I can’t cope with this flight’ wickedness had said,
Quote
“All Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades.”
“Alright, so all of yous are there getting ready for your Friday night, getting in the pre-drinks, you know, as you do.
“And I’m here, getting ready to go to work, put on a yellow life jacket, point out the exits, hand out chicken or beef; what sort of Friday night is this for me?
“The upside is I’m going to Nigeria and there’s gonna be bare B**, I’m joking, I’m joking.
“All the Nigerians are gonna be there like ‘gimme Coca-Cola, gimme me beef, why you have no beef left? I want beef.
“And I’m just gonna be there like, ‘Sorry sir, we ran out of beef.
“All the Nigerians are gonna be there asking for f****** upgrades because they haven’t got enough leg room because their B**s are in their way. Big d**** like this swinging from side to side.”

Also reacting to rant, which was reported by the British Airways Regional Commercial Manager, West Africa, Kola Olayinka, confirmed the sack of the stewardess.
A statement from Olayinka read in part,
Quote
“I can confirm that BA has finalized investigations into alleged video posted by one of our cabin crew and I can confirm that the person in question no longer works for BA effective today (Tuesday).
“We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways.
“We will not tolerate offensive comments about our customers anywhere in the world, and will always take the appropriate action.”
