‘Train Karen’ Brianna Pinnix’s Public Appearance
Brianna Pinnix, famously known as ‘Train Karen,’ has made her first public appearance outside her Manhattan apartment since the incident where she berated German tourists on a New Jersey Transit train, telling them to ‘get the f**k out of my country.’
This incident garnered widespread attention and led to significant consequences for Pinnix.
Loss of Job at Capital Rx
Following the viral video of her screaming abuse at the travelers, Brianna Pinnix, who worked as a recruitment specialist, faced the repercussions of her actions.
She lost her job at pharmacy giant Capital Rx.
The footage showed her becoming increasingly aggressive towards the group of young travelers, even questioning their origins and making xenophobic remarks.
Xenophobic Tirade and Reaction
During the confrontation on the train, Pinnix, seemingly intoxicated, directed hateful comments at the tourists, including the statement, ‘lets not let immigrants take up our country…how about you get the f*** out of our country.’
Despite the tourists appearing to handle the situation calmly, the incident raised significant concerns.
Capital Rx’s Response
After DailyMail.com revealed Pinnix’s identity, Capital Rx released a statement affirming their zero-tolerance policy regarding prejudicial or discriminatory behavior.
They promptly terminated her employment, emphasizing that her actions did not represent the company’s values and extending apologies to those affected.
Attempted Context and Male Companion
Brianna Pinnix declined interview requests to provide context for her actions during the incident.
In the video, a male companion, who does not appear to be her British husband, tried to de-escalate the situation, urging her to avoid causing trouble.
He emphasized that the group of men was having a private conversation, not seeking conflict. However, Pinnix continued berating the tourists, causing frustration for her companion.
Response from New Jersey Transit
New Jersey Transit strongly condemned Pinnix’s behavior and encouraged customers to report such incidents to train crew members or NJ TRANSIT Police.
They expressed their disapproval of any behavior of this nature.
Additional Accusation: Xenophobic Attack on Former Boss
It was later revealed that Brianna Pinnix had faced another accusation of a xenophobic attack, this time targeting her former boss.
She allegedly called him a ‘Scottish piece of s***’ and expressed hopes for his deportation during a work dispute.
A former colleague described Pinnix as ‘aggressive’ and stated that her behavior was exacerbated when she drank at work events.
A former colleague who worked with Pinnix between 2019 and 2022 recalled her as an ‘HR nightmare’ who exhibited aggressive and angry behavior, particularly when drinking at work events.
This led to her being banned from such gatherings. The colleague also mentioned that Pinnix had made a TikTok video series about the former boss, accusing him of ‘gaslighting’ her.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
