Citibank has given one of its bankers the boot after she praised Hitler and defended the Holocaust in a vicious antisemitic post following the Hamas terror attacks against Israel.
Her “revolting” commentary on Instagram was a bridge too far for the banking giant.
“No wonder why Hitler wanted to get rid of all of them,” former Citibank staffer Nozima Husainova wrote, adding a smiley-face emoji to the hateful post.
Husainova, 25, has since deleted the post and her social media accounts including her Instagram page where she had over 4,500 followers. However, the Internet is forever and a screenshot of the vile sentiment was posted to X on Wednesday by the nonprofit watchdog StopAntisemitism.
UPDATE: Nozima Husainova has been fired from Citi.
A spokesman for Citi said Husainova’s comments were ‘revolting’ and said hate speech would not be tolerated in their bank.

The banker’s post was in response to another concerning the bombing of a Gaza hospital that Palestinians, Hamas, their supporters, leftists, and the media originally blamed on Israel. US and Israeli intel sources now believe it was a misfired rocket that was launched by Islamic Jihad.
“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 Citibank spokesperson told the New York Post.
We are investigating this matter and taking appropriate disciplinary action. We strongly condemn antisemitism and other hate speech.

The young banker posted on her now-deleted LinkedIn page that she was a graduate of CUNY Brooklyn College. She has a degree in finance which snagged her a job as a personal banker at Citibank. She was with the bank for two years before being fired.
Husainova’s termination follows a number of businesses declaring that they would not hire Harvard students who signed a letter blaming Israel for the horrific terrorist attacks committed by Hamas.
Hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman led the way, demanding that Harvard release a list of those who signed the letters so companies would know who not to hire. Harvard failed to condemn Hamas for its actions.
“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, stated on X. “I don’t think so.”
“Though his calls to out the students were slammed as ‘harassment,’ the 57-year-old shrugged off the criticism — and at least a dozen business executives even backed Ackman,” the New York Post reported.

“Among them: Jonathan Newman, CEO of salad chain Sweetgreen; David Duel, CEO of health care services firm EasyHealth; and Ale Resnik, CEO of Belong, a rental housing startup,” the outlet noted.
A number of professionals are finding themselves unemployed after unacceptable social media posts. One of them is a New York City emergency room doctor who was sacked for her posts that supported Hamas’ massacre at a music festival in southern Israel that killed over 1,400 people. She hatefully stated that the Israelis got “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,” the New York Post wrote.
“Zionist settlers getting a taste of their own medicine,” she posted in a screenshot that was shared by StopAntisemitism on X Monday.
NYC – Dr. Dana Diab is an ER physician at Lenox Hill (@lenoxhill).
Dina Diab took to Instagram rejoicing Zionist settlers [aka jews] were murdered, raped, beheaded, and kidnapped by the Hamas terror group on Saturday October 7th.

The doctor had a Palestinian flag emoji in her bio section on Instagram. That profile has since gone private.
Citibank was praised online for firing the banker and Husainova was blasted for her antisemitism:
