‘Fck This Place, Goddamn Liberal Fcks’
A Southwest Airlines pilot’s rant against San Francisco residents during a March 12 flight went viral this week, according to The Hill.
The unidentified pilot called Bay Area residents “goddamn liberal f*cks,” according to live audio from Air Traffic Control (ATC). The rant begins around the twenty-minute mark.
“F*cking weirdos, probably driving around in f*cking Hyundais, f*cking roads and sh*t that go slow as f*ck,” the pilot said
San Jose International Airport’s air traffic controller scanner picked up the pilot’s broadside of Bay Area residents, The Hill reported Thursday. A Southwest Airlines spokesman confirmed the unidentified man works for the airline, and that they are “fully addressing the situation internally,” SFGATE reported.
“Our corporate Culture is built on a tenet of treating others with concern and dignity and the comments are inconsistent with the professional behavior and overall respect that we require from our Employees,” the spokesman said in a statement, according to SFGATE.
“This situation was an isolated incident involving a single Employee and not representative of the nearly 60,000 hardworking, respectful People of Southwest Airlines.”
