Man got fired by his employer GlaxoSmithKline after he went into a racist and homophobic rant on a flight from Philadelphia to Dallas
The man boasted to passengers that he worked for a pharmaceutical company. The person who posted the video said the unnamed man became agitated after he was asked to leave the plane for allegedly acting inappropriately towards a woman sitting next to him.
In the video, the man repeatedly calls passengers ‘f**kers’ and also asks a flight attendant if he was being kicked off the plane for being racist. “Obviously I’m a white male that picked a black bag because I’m racist,” the man said, adding, “It’s a better bag than most of ya’ll can afford.” The man also allegedly yelled a racist slur several times before he was filmed. The man said he was a chemical engineer for GlaxoSmithKline, and was planning to quit the company this week. He called the company “one of the best f**king companies in the world”.
Posting the video on Reddit, a user wrote, “Drunk racist and homophobic man got kicked off my flight last night from Philadelphia to Dallas for being inappropriate towards the woman in the seat next to him. Spectacular meltdown as he is escorted off the plane. Was proudly telling everyone he is a chemical engineer for GlaxoSmithKline… can anyone find out who he is and let his employer know?!?? He claimed he is quitting his job next week. I didn’t manage to start recording early enough to catch his copious usage of the N-word towards the flight attendants, but it was over and over, and very loud! The crew handled the whole situation phenomenally well! Crew was fantastic.”

Responding to the video, Glaxo said, “On Wednesday, GSK was notified of an incident involving an employee on a flight to Dallas. We immediately conducted an investigation and as of Thursday, he is no longer employed at GSK. The person’s behavior was reprehensible and does not reflect our company culture.”
Meanwhile, a Glaxo spokesperson told TMZ, “At GSK, diversity, equity and inclusion is embraced and celebrated and we are committed in policy, principle and practice to maintaining an environment which prohibits discriminatory behavior and provides equal opportunity for all persons.”
