British Airways sacked a stewardess who posted a racist Snapchat rant attacking Nigerian passengers, after she was called in for a two-hour meeting with bosses yesterday(26).

Joanne Wickenden sparked outrage after recording the racist clip in her BA uniform before flying from London Heathrow to Abuja on Friday (22) night.  

In a statement, the airline said 'she no longer works for British Airways', adding: '​We expect the utmost professionalism from our staff when they are representing British Airways.'

The 23-year-old, who wants to be an actress, told friends 'I am not a racist' and claimed the sickening video was just a joke.
