The Southwest Airlines employee who laughed at the name of a 5-year-old girl checking-in for a flight with her mother, herself has a birth name which is far from conventional, it has been reported.
When Abcde (pronounced Ab-city) Redford, 5, stood in line with her mom, Traci, the gate agent took one look at the tot's name, spoke and laughed with her colleagues, pointed at Abcde, then posted a picture of her boarding card online.
What she didn't do, was post details of her own name online.
Imaq Hunt is in hot water with her employers, after the incident at John Wayne airport in California. Later, after she had boarded the flight to El Paso, Abcde was further insulted as giggling cabin crew, serving an in-flight meal, offered her Alphabet Soup.
A spokesman for the airline stated that Hunt's social media post was "not indicative of the care, respect, and civility" the airline expected from staff.
She has been placed 'on leave' whilst an investigation is carried out.
Her behavior is indicative of the way knobheads like Imaq Hunt, think they can, these days, humiliate people or things they, personally, find amusing, and share them with potentially millions of others over social media.
Not unlike how I am doing here.
John Wayne, himself, had a rather strange name, if you will, for 'Marion' is hardly a regular name for boys. Others with peculiar names were quick to jump to the defence of little Abcde.
Moon Unit Zappa, daughter of iconic US musician and composer, Frank, said:
"Abcde's name seems fine to me. What's the problem?"
