A New York woman accosted a bunch of German tourists onboard a NJ Transit train that was headed to New York City. In the video, Brianna Pinnix approaches a group of German tourists and begins shouting at them and making xenophobic comments.
Pinnix appears intoxicated in the video where she approaches a group of three men. She demands that they tell her what they are talking about in German and continues to berate them when they try to brush her off. She gets in the face of one of the men and he understandably gets annoyed by her wildly inappropriate behavior. Someone off camera tries to pull her back, but it’s too late. She is in full Karen mode and continues to spout her anti-immigrant rhetoric.
This Karen got her just desserts though, as her employer, Capital Rx, promptly terminated her role as a recruitment specialist after it viewed the video. This is not Pinnix’ first time getting in trouble for her abusive language. She had allegedly verbally attacked a former boss, called him a “Scottish piece of s***”, and told him that she “hoped he would be deported.”
Capital Rx released a statement to The Daily Mail. It reads:
The company has a zero-tolerance policy around prejudicial or discriminatory behavior. After conducting a review of the circumstances, we acted immediately and terminated the employee in question. The former employee’s actions and words are not representative of Capital Rx, and we offer our sincerest apology to those who were hurt.”
Anthony’s Take: What is wrong with people? I’m happy to see that this woman got what she deserved in her 15 minutes of infamy. Hopefully, she’ll think twice before spouting her mouth in the future, but that’s doubtful as people like her rarely learn.
