Brianna Pinnix, a 30-year-old woman, was videotaped while making xenophobic comments against a group of German tourists on a New York train.

The recording, which another passenger took and uploaded online, showed Pinnix in what appeared to be a New Jersey Transit train approaching young men and telling them to “get the f*** out of her country.”

She was clearly drunk when she asked the men if they were German. Then, she aggressively told them, “What did you say? Tell me what you said.”

During the whole thing, the woman’s boyfriend can be visibly seen in the video trying to calm her. There was even a time when he held onto her wrists as she leaned into one of the tourist’s faces.

Then he told Pinnix, “Brie, don’t do this. You could be arrested,” all while convincing her that the guys were “having a private conversation.” However, she responded, saying, “I love you, but get off me,” as she repeatedly verbally attacked the young tourists.

Enough With the Ignorant Behavior

That’s when her boyfriend threatened her that if she didn’t stop right then and there and sit down, he would never talk to her again. But she only replied, “I can handle my own.”

On the other hand, the German tourists were only laughing off her behavior and their uncomfortable situation.

The one and only time the men directly addressed Pinnix was when one of them, the person Pinnix kept getting close to, stood up, looked her in the eye, and said something indiscernible.

A few seconds later, he sat back down to avoid escalating the situation. There was also a couple sitting behind the German guys who also laughed at what was happening.

Finally, after being able to get Pinnix to walk back to her seat, her boyfriend said, “You know I’m an immigrant, too. You know that, right?” However, she shrugged it off and replied, “Yeah, but I’m responsible for you, so it’s okay,” as if there was some sort of special treatment there.

To Instigate and Provoke

Afterward, other passengers started to interact with the woman, teasing her. A man behind her even suggested she “hit them with a right hook,” which made Pinnix jump up from her seat and exclaim, “Thank you!”

She Wasn’t Done

Then, she came on to the tourists again and yelled, “How about you get the f*** out of our country?” All this time, her boyfriend held her back and tried to stop her.

In the video, another passenger was saying that Pinnix’s xenophobic comment was “harsh.”

You’re Fired!

After the video of her disgusting and embarrassing behavior was uploaded on social media, Pinnix was fired from her talent acquisition specialist job at Capital Rx.

In a public statement, Capital Rx clarified, “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 former employee’s actions and words are not representative of Capital Rx, and we offer our sincerest apology to those who were hurt.”

Aside from that, the New Jersey Transit also informed a news website that they “strongly condemn any behavior of this type” and encouraged passengers to report similar incidents to their trained crew members or reach out to NJ Transit Police.

Redditors Speak Their Minds

People were glad that the woman’s boyfriend didn’t tolerate her behavior and tried to stop and correct her when she was being horrible.

A Redditor commented, “At least it appears her boyfriend isn’t tolerating it.”

Another person replied to the previous comment, saying, “In my opinion, he handled the situation as best as possible. He stayed calm and did everything he could to try to reason with her. People are saying, ‘He should have just broken up with her right on the spot!’ We’ve seen how this woman handles the passing words of commuters. Dropping an A-bomb on this relationship right now is not going to make anything better.”

What’s up With Her?

Some people were genuinely confused by why Pinnix acted up and why she treated the tourists that way.

Someone wrote, “I’d recognize a New Jersey transit train anywhere. But on a real note, why is this drunk girl so upset with this guy? Did he do or say something to her? Also, she’s a piece of s*** because this is what she actually thinks.”

The same person added, “Her being drunk just brought out her true self, which is a disgusting trash person. I hope her boyfriend broke up with her after seeing her like this because she’s an embarrassment.”

Don’t Blame the Alcohol

People say that drinking alcohol or being drunk doesn’t change you but only shows your true self, and that’s precisely what happened to Brianna Pinnix.

A commenter wrote, “Well, they say no more alcohol. Yet, alcohol does not put those ideas in her head. They were already there. Alcohol makes them come out faster, for one has less control. It just showed her true self.”

Another person said, “I have been drunk before and never crossed my mind to get racist, xenophobic, or yell at perfect strangers. In this case, she likely took offense at these guys speaking German. I have seen that many times, and I have been the subject of similar scenes when I spoke Italian or Spanish on public transport. Either people straight out yelling at me to ‘speak English’ or making offensive jokes without for one moment thinking I could also speak and understand English or that I lived here and I was just showing the place to a bunch of tourists.”

Have you encountered someone like Pinnix before? Why do you think there are people like her in this world?
