Southwest slams passenger's anti-Muslim tweet, but people are calling for company to do more

(FOX News) -- Southwest Airlines condemned a racist anti-Muslim tweet from a passenger targeting one of its employees, but people are calling for the company to do more.

John Guandolo posted the tweet Saturday night along with a photo of the Southwest employee, though it has since been removed from his account. “I wish this were shocking…a sharia adherent muslim (aka jihadi) at my plane as I head to AZ to speak at the Western Conservative Conference," he wrote, along with a hashtag reading #ShariaKills."

After the tweet caught Southwest’s attention, the airline sent out a series of responses. The airline wrote that they had reported Guandolo’s tweet and hoped it would be removed, and expressed their disgust with the “cruel and inappropriate post.”

“We pride ourselves on our People-focused Culture fostered by the most caring and loving Employees in the world, and the Southwest Family stands strong with our Employee who was the target of this cruel and inappropriate post,” the company tweeted.
