Joanne Wickenden, the 23 year old flight attendant with British Airways who is now suspended for her Snapchat video where she made certain racist jokes has insisted that her ‘Nigerian’ jokes were not intended to offended.

Dailymail is quoting a friend of hers who says she’s distraught at the matter. ‘She’s not racist, it was a joke between two friends. It wasn’t meant to be racist. She is not saying she dislikes Nigerians and she’s not saying that anyone is better than anyone else.’

Wickenden was captured on video describing Nigerian passengers who she said always wanted more legroom because of their rather large genitals.

‘My friend was horrified. BA has a culture of dealing with things like this internally, she passed it to me because she was concerned that nothing was done,’ the friend says.

The airline is believed to have suspended her, pending conclusion of ‘investigation’.
