A British Airways hostess has found herself in serious trouble after she made a Snapchat racist video about Nigerian passengers.
A British Airways stewardess who is an aspiring actress has left many people in shock after taking to her Snapchat to unleash a torrent of racist rant about Nigerian passengers.
According to Dailymail, Joanne Wickenden, 23, being investigated by the airline, a member of mixed fleet cabin crew, sparked outrage after recording the racist clip in her BA uniform before flying from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday night.
Ms Wickenden, who is believed to have been suspended, refused to comment about the video at the home she shares with her mother and father in Fareham, Hampshire. But a former school friend told MailOnline: ‘I was disgusted, it’s so embarrassing. She was renowned for making inappropriate jokes at school.’
British Airways said in a statement to MailOnline they said: ‘We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways. We are investigating this video.’
In the expletive-filled footage, she said: ‘all Nigerians are going to be asking for f****** upgrades’ – after claiming the men would need more leg room in an apparent joke about the size of their privates. During the one-minute clip the blonde female worker, who also has a profile on acting website StarNow, also revealed how she was going to deal with passengers on the six-hour flight.
The 5ft 11in air hostess says she has been single for two years as she boasted about her job on Plenty of Fish.
‘I’m a flight attendant living in Crawley. I’ve been single for 2 years now and miss a bit of male company,’ she wrote.
‘I’m outgoing, like to have a laugh and enjoy socialising. I’m the sort of person where the little things mean the most. Trust is a must! If you would like to find out more then pop me a message :) xx’
A source told MailOnline that the video – which was captioned ‘I can’t cope with this flight’ – was circulated among ‘horrified’ BA cabin crew who are ‘very concerned’.
Miss Wickenden filmed herself saying: ‘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.’
An airline source told MailOnline: ‘My friend was horrified. BA has a culture of dealing with things like this internally, she passed it to me because she was concerned that nothing was done.’
