Posted Political Cartoon on Facebook, Got Fired

Posting an Aislin (Terry Mosher) political cartoon to her
personal Facebook page cost a flight attendant her job.

A former Delta Air Lines flight attendant is suing the Atlanta-based carrier after she was sacked for posting a cartoon of then President Donald Trump wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood on her Facebook profile.

Taylor was a veteran flight attendant who worked for Delta for 13 years and before then at Northwest Airlines until she was dismissed on April 12, 2021, on the grounds that she had posted a racially motivated political post on social media.

Delta has one of the strictest employee social media policies amongst U.S.-based airlines, although the rules haven’t prevented a number of high-profile controversies. 

In Taylor’s case, Delta started to trawl through her social media history after she helped in a case against yet another flight attendant who was sacked for posting a controversial image on social media.
