A clip of a government worker who was removed from a plane after being rude to staff and swearing in front of a baby is making the rounds online.

Susan Peirez complained when being told to sit next to a mother and her baby and, after asking an employee for her name, she told her “you might not have a job tomorrow@.

Marissa Rundell, 19, had her baby with her and filmed the entire thing.

Peirez was removed from the Delta flight at New York’s JKF International Airport and was suspended from her job with the New York State government after the video went viral.

She can be heard saying she “works for the government”, a reference to her job for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, but when she realised she was being kicked off the plane, she apologised.

Clip of the February incident resurfaced on social media recently.

Ronni Reich, a director of public information for the Council where Peirez is employed told the Mail Online:

State employees are and must be held to the highest standard both professionally and personally

We were notified of this situation and have commenced an investigation. This employee has been removed from the office and placed on leave until further notice and until the inquiry is resolved.

Despite the fact that Peirez was rude to Rundell, the 19-year-old didn’t want her to lose her job.

Speaking to Good Morning America, she had said:

She came to the back and slammed her bags down. She said, 'This is f***ing ridiculous. It's bulls**t having to sit in the back of the plane.'

I started recording mainly because I thought it was comical how she was acting.

I don't think she deserves that, people keep saying don't feel bad she deserved it... I honestly don't think she did.

The clip has divided viewers. One person wrote that while they don’t condone the behaviour, “if you put a baby anywhere near me on an aircraft, or any other confined space, I’m out. Gone. I’ll catch the next one.”

However Jordan Koopmans wrote on Facebook: “Put some headphones in and shut the f**k up lady.”
