EXCLUSIVE: 'Drunk' woman who screamed at German tourists to 'go home' is Brianna Pinnix, a recruitment specialist at pharma giant Capital Rx in Manhattan

A ‘drunk’ woman who hurled xenophobic abuse at a group of German tourists on a New York train has been revealed as a high-flying recruitment specialist in Manhattan.

Brianna Pinnix, 30, from New York, works as a Senior talent acquisition specialist at Capital Rx, specializing in Technology recruiting, according to her now-deleted LinkedIn page. 

Pinnix was caught on video screaming at a group of German tourists on a New Jersey Transit train earlier this week. 

During the confrontation, Pinnix is seen becoming increasingly aggressive towards the group of young travelers before shouting ‘lets not let immigrants take up our country…how about you get the f**k out of our country.’ 

Before joining Capital Rx last September, Pinnix worked for InterQuest Group between 2019 and 2022 and at Green Key Resources between March 2017 and April 2019.

Pinnix has a bachelor’s degree in communications and media studies from Marymount Manhattan College.

The recruiter has been described as ‘an absolute pleasure’ by a client. 

‘I was raving about her to friends and previous coworkers’ the client wrote on Pinnix’s LinkedIn. ‘She is incredibly knowledgeable and so personable.’ 

Pinnix declined an interview request to explain her perspective and to provide context on the situation when reached by DailyMail.com.

The shocking footage showed Pinnox, who appeared drunk, towering over a group of tourists as they chat amongst themselves in their seats.

‘Are you German?’ she asks before aggressively adding, ‘what did you say, tell me what you said.’

The Manhattan recruiter, wearing jeans and a light green strappy top, who social media user’s have dubbed a ‘Karen’, is seen being soothed by her concerned husband.

‘Brie, don’t do this. You could be arrested’ he pleads, as he takes her by the arm and tries to convince his partner that the group of men were ‘having a private conversation’ and not trying to start a conflict.

‘I love you, but get off me’ the increasingly upset woman tells her husband as she continues to berate the tourists.

‘Stop this right now, go sit down or I’m never going to talk to you again’ he threatens.

The tourists appeared to take the incident in good humor, with only one getting out of their seat, appearing visibly annoyed before calmly sitting back down moments later.

It’s unclear what led to the confrontation or what comments were made to the blonde woman.

After the woman is back in her seat the boyfriend tells her, ‘I’m an immigrant too, you know that right.’

New Jersey Transit told DailyMail.com the company ‘strongly condemns any behavior of this type’ and its customers are ‘encouraged to report incidents of this nature to train crew members, or they can reach out to NJ TRANSIT Police’.
