The tag “IdiotPM” has landed pilot in trouble as he lost his hours after his remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Low-cost airline GoAir reportedly terminated a senior pilot for his alleged derogatory remarks against the PM.
Taking to Twitter, the pilot had said: “PM is an idiot. You can call me same in return. It’s ok. I don’t matter. Bcoz I am not PM. But PM is an idiot. Period”. His tweets had created controversy on the micro-blogging app.
He later on deleted the tweet and apologised for the same and wrote ” “I apologise for my tweets about PM, other offensive tweets which may have hurt sentiments of anyone associated. I convey that GoAir is not associated with any of my tweets directly or indirectly as they were personal views,” before locking his Twitter account.
Confirming sacking the services of the pilot, GoAir spokesperson said “GoAir has zero tolerance policy and it is mandatory for all GoAir employees to comply with the company’s employment rules, regulations and policies, including social media behaviour.”
Confirming the company had terminated the services, the spokesperson added “The airline does not associate itself with personal views expressed by any individual or an employee.”
