German tourists were on the receiving end of a nasty verbal attack from a drunk woman on a New Jersey Transit train. Now “Train Karen” has lost her job. What prompted such a strange outburst?
Train Karen Tells German Tourists To Get Out Of “Our Country” On New York-Bound Train
Brianna Pinnix, who has been dubbed “Train Karen” was on a NJ Transit train with a friend bound for New York City. Seated nearby were a group of German lads. Pinnix approached them. It is not clear why, but she displayed signs of being drunk, which may have prompted discussion amongst the Germans.
“Are you German? What did you say, tell me what you said!”
She then raised her voice and said:
“Let’s not let immigrants take up our country…how about you get the f*** out of our country.”
This prompted laughter from two of the Germans but another one stood up in outrage before sitting down again.
An unidentified companion pulled Pinnix back, explaining to her that the Germans were just having a private conversation and should be left alone and also that she could be arrested if she continued to harass them.
“Brie, don’t do this. You could be arrested”
But that did not deter Pinnix. She responded, “Babe, I love you, but get off me.”
The man, who does not appear to her her British husband, said, “Stop this right now, go sit down or I’m never going to talk to you again.”
Pinnix sat down, but then jumped again. Her friend told her, “‘I’m an immigrant too, you know that right?!”
Pinnix was later identified by the UK Daily Mail. She is a resident of Yorkville, ironically a historically German immigrant neighborhood, in New York City. When her employer, pharmacy benefit manager Capital Rx was made aware of her conduct onboard NJ Transit, she was terminated.
She has also been accused of an earlier xenophobic tirade against a Scottish boss, calling him a “Scottish piece of s***” and adding, “I hope you will be deported.” But an investigation is moot at this point as she has already been fired from Capital Rx
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.
She has refused to go on the record and address what was going on that prompted such an outburst.
“Train Karen” Brianna Pinnix accosted German tourists with a remarkable tirade of anti-immigrant rhetoric. In a warning to anyone who might choose to run their mouths in a public place like onboard a train, she has lost her job over this. To the German tourists: you are most welcome here. Don’t listen to Karen.
