A video has gone viral showing a woman berating tourists on a NJ Transit train.
The woman has been identified as Brianna Pinnix. She was fired from her job at Capital Rx because of her rant captured on video. The company told News 12 once they reviewed the circumstances, they immediately fired her.
NJ Transit also condemned the incident. They said in a statement, “In June, we launched our Ride Kind campaign designed to remind and encourage customers to treat all their fellow customers and NJ TRANSIT employees with kindness and respect. As part of this campaign, we have included posters and signs on board buses and trains, inside stations and on social media to encourage customers and employees to model ideal transit behaviors.”
NJ Transit said customers are encouraged to report incidents of this nature to train crew members, or they can reach out to NJ TRANSIT police by calling 1-888-847-7658 or texting their message to 65873.
There is no word on what led up to the woman's rant.
