British Airways has reportedly launched an investigation into a trending video that shows one of their yet-to-be identified air stewardess making racist comments while laughing about Nigerian passengers on a flight from London to Abuja.
In the shocking footage shared via Snapchat, the stewardess is heard 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 BBC, 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 BBCs are in their way. Big d**** like this swinging from side to side.’
Reacting to the video, a representative from the airline said today:
‘We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways. We are investigating this video.’
