Citi Fires Banker Over ‘Revolting’ Israel Remark on Social Media

Citibank has fired one of its staffers after she posted “revolting” commentary on Instagram that endorsed the mass murder of Jewish people during the Holocaust.

“No wonder why Hitler wanted to get rid of all of them,” Nozima Husainova wrote with a smiley face emoji in an Instagram story, which has since been deleted along with the 25-year-old’s Instagram and other social media accounts.

The post was a screenshot shared to X, formerly Twitter, by non-profit watchdog StopAntisemitism late Wednesday, which also posted a photo of her Instagram profile that boasted over 4,500 followers.

Husainova had written the explosive comment in response to a post about the Gaza hospital bombing that was initially blamed on Israel, but was later revealed to be caused by the Islamic Jihad terror group after its operatives misfired a rocket.

The investment bank confirmed to The Post that Husainova was fired after the remark, which was earlier reported on by the Daily Mail.

“We terminated the employment of the person who made the revolting antisemitic comment on social media. We condemn antisemitism and all hate speech and do not tolerate it in our bank,” a Citi spokesperson said.

Critics on social media bashed Husainova’s endorsement of the Holocaust as “vile,” “unbridled antisemitism.”

Following news of her firing, StopAntisemitism posted to X: “Thank you Citi for saying NO! to antisemitism,” while other users expressed gratitude that the bank “did the right thing.”

According to Husainova’s now-deleted LinkedIn page, she graduated from CUNY Brooklyn College in June 2021 with a degree in finance before landing a job as a personal banker at Citi, a role “to foster relations with customers to build loyalty and to help increase sales to individual consumer clients,” according to the bank.

According to recruiting site Glassdoor, the average Citi staffer in Husainova’s role takes home just under $75,000 per year.

Husainova had assumed the entry-level position for the Wall Street firm for just two years before being sacked.

Citi’s move to fire Husainova comes after a flurry of business executives threatened to refuse employment opportunities to the Harvard students who signed a letter blaming Israel for Hamas’ violent attacks.

Hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman headed the initiative, doubling down on his demand that Harvard release a list of the signatories of the controversial letter, which failed to outwardly condemn Hamas.

“If you were managing a business, would you hire someone who blamed the despicable violent acts of a terrorist group on the victims?” Ackman — the founder of New York hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management — shared to his X account last week. “I don’t think so.”

Though his calls to oust the students were slammed as “harassment,” the 57-year-old shrugged off the criticism — and at least a dozen business executives even backed Ackman.

Among them: Jonathan Newman, CEO of salad chain Sweetgreen; David Duel, CEO of health care services firm EasyHealth; and Ale Resnik, the CEO of Belong, a rental housing startup.

Meanwhile, a New York City emergency room doctor was also fired for her controversial social media posts that applauded Hamas’ massacre at a music festival in southern Israel, saying the attacks gave Israelis “a taste of their own medicine.”

Dr. Dana Diab — an emergency room physician with Lenox Hill Hospital and Brookdale University Hospital & Medical Center, according to NYC Health + Hospitals — shared a video of the heinous Oct. 7 attack on her Instagram Stories.

“Zionist settlers getting a taste of their own medicine,” she wrote, according to a screenshot shared by StopAntisemitism on X on Monday.

A second snap showed Diab’s Instagram profile, which has since gone private — where the physician boasted over 600 followers and had a Palestinian flag emoji in the bio section.

The ultra-divisive pro-Palestine posts come as Irsrael and its archrival enter their 12th day of war. As of Thursday, at least 3,000 Palestinians and 1,400 Israelis have been killed, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    It amazes me that people come to our country “for better opportunity” and then are surprised when their native sensibilities are not welcomed with open arms. If you are going to hold views contrary to reason don’t complain when they are rejected. Better yet, just stay home where you are comfortable to start with.

    Proud of you Citibank for fireing her even if I don’t like your bank.
