Man sacked from his job and deported from UAE for "celebrating New Zealand mosque shooting


A man has been sacked from his job and also deported from the United Arab Emirates, UAE, after allegedly celebrating the mass killing of Muslims in New Zealand last week.

No fewer than 50 people were killed in the terror attack carried out in two Christchurch mosques and dozens were injured.

While the world mourned the terror attack carried out by an Australian white supremacist, a Transguard employee made an insensitive comment about the attack on his Facebook account. His comment was not without consequences. 

“Over the weekend, a Transguard employee made inflammatory comments on his personal Facebook account celebrating the deplorable mosque attack in Christchurch, New Zealand,” security company Transguard said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy for the inappropriate use of social media, and as a result this individual was immediately terminated and turned over to the authorities to face justice,” Managing Director Greg Ward said.

The company said the employee was deported by the UAE government.

Transguard, an Emirates Group brand, did not disclose the alleged comments. The name, nationality, and position of the employee were also not disclosed.
