CUNY Brooklyn College graduate Nozima Husainova, 25, a Muslim, sparked outrage with the remark which she posted on her now-deleted Instagram page and she’s since lost her job, the bank confirmed Thursday.
Daily MailResponding to a post about the Gaza hospital bombing which was falsely blamed on Israel,, she wrote: ‘No wonder why Hitler wanted to get rid of them all,’ complete with a smiley face emoji.
No doubt feeling the public pressure build, Citibank cut their losses and decided to fire Husainova. Customers were accusing the bank of tolerating ‘unbridled anti-Semitism’ among its staff and warning that it faces a boycott.
‘Hey Citi, does your commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion include nazis?’ wrote Daniel S Levy on X, formerly Twitter.
‘What does it say about Citi,’ asked Marian Kruss. ‘This is NOT inclusiveness and your organization needs to fire her.’
‘Where can I send a complaint about one of your employees, Nozima Husainova, praising Hitler’s extermination of Jews?’ asked Lenny Luchese.
‘Or does Citi condone her words? Vile and despicable.’
The outrage comes after a host of senior CEOs warned they would not employ students who had blamed Israel for the Hamas terror attack that took 1,400 lives
A Citibank spokesman released the following statement Thursday to the Daily Mail announcing her termination.
We terminated the employment of the person who made the revolting anti-Semitic comment on social media. We condemn antisemitism and all hate speech and do not tolerate it in our bank.
