Well at least there are still some decent people out there. And some of them employed the racist man who slapped a baby calling the child ” a nigger baby.” After the news broke that one of their employees was an unapologetic racist, these decent people did what had to be done and fired Joe Rickey Hundley.
An Idaho man accused of uttering a racial slur and slapping a crying 19-month-old boy on a Delta Air Lines flight is now
out of a job.
Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, was charged with assaulting a minor in the February 8 incident. His company, which initially suspended him, said Sunday that Hundley no longer has his job.
“Reports of the recent behavior of one of our business unit executives while on personal travel are offensive and disturbing,” said a statement from AGC Aerospace & Defense. “We have taken this matter very seriously and worked diligently to examine it since learning of the matter on Friday afternoon.
“As of Sunday, the executive is no longer employed with the company.”
AGC Aerospace & Defense supplies technology and other services to the military and businesses.
Affidavit: Slap with an open hand
According to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta last week:
The boy’s mother, Jessica Bennett, 33, of Minnesota and her son were seated in row 28, seat B, on Delta Flight 721 that originated in Minneapolis.
As the plane began its descent into Atlanta, the boy began to cry because of the altitude change and his mother tried to soothe him.
Then Hundley, who was seated next to the mother and son, allegedly told her to “shut that (‘N word’) baby up.”
