According to reports, Brianna Pinnix, a talent acquisition specialist at Capital Rx from Mahwah, was caught on video screaming at tourists while her boyfriend tried to restrain her. The incident occurred on a train bound for New York City. Initially posted on Reddit, the video shows Pinnix engaged in a xenophobic rant aimed at German tourists.
According to The Messenger, the incident occurred on a New Jersey Transit train after the New York Jets versus Kansas City Chiefs game on Sunday, October 1st.
The man accompanying her implored, “Bri, please don’t do this.” His plea was brushed aside as she seemed determined to proceed with her plan. “If you go through with this, we may never speak again,” he warned, hoping to change her mind.
Pinnix confidently stated that she could handle the situation alone before proceeding to confront a tourist and hurl expletives about immigrants towards them.
Capital Rx has a strict policy that prohibits prejudiced or discriminatory behaviour, as stated by the company.
Capital RX confirmed they took swift action by terminating the employee after carefully reviewing the circumstances.

After the incident, Pinnix decided to deactivate her accounts on both LinkedIn and Facebook. At this point, it is unclear what precisely the tourists said triggered her reaction.
