A woman was caught on a viral video going on a xenophobic rant and telling a group of Germans to “get the f*** out of our country” on a New Jersey Transit train. The woman – who the internet has dubbed “Train Karen” – was fired from her job after her abusive behavior went viral online.
Brianna Pinnix, 30, was featured in a video that surfaced on Reddit on Tuesday. She is seen berating German tourists on a New York City-bound train.
The footage shows Pinnix confronting the German tourists. The group mostly laughs off the embarrassing clash.
The woman’s boyfriend is seen attempting to de-escalate the tense situation, but Pinnix declares, “I can handle my own.”
He warns her that she is going to get arrested, but she doesn’t care. The boyfriend then threatens to never talk to Pinnix ever again, but she continues to scold the tourists.
The boyfriend tells Pinnix, “You know I’m an immigrant? I’m an immigrant, too, you know that, right?”
The boyfriend pulls Brianna away from the tourists, but she repeatedly castigates the group of men. “I love you, but get off me,” she told her boyfriend.
While the boyfriend holds her back, Pinnix yells, “How about you get the f*** out of our country!”
Many online commentators have said that the woman appears to be drunk.
The video of the cringe-worthy encounter went viral this week.
Pinnix reportedly locked her social media accounts after her xenophobic rant went viral.
According to the New York Post, Pinnix was fired from her job at the New York-based pharmaceutical company.
“Our 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 company said in a statement. “The former employee’s actions and words are not representative of Capital Rx, and we offer our sincerest apology to those who were hurt.”
Pinnix had been a talent acquisition specialist at Capital Rx.
