A woman was awarded $21 million after she was fired for refusing to work on Sundays for religious reasons, and comedian Basketmouth has something to say about it.

60-year-old Marie Jean Pierre, a former dishwasher at the Conrad Miami Hotel, worked with the establishment for more than 10 years, but she was fired in March 2016 because she missed work for six Sundays to attend Church.

Pierre, a devout Christian missionary born in Haiti, said that she had informed her employer when she was hired that she could not work on Sundays because of her religious beliefs.

When she was then assigned to work on Sunday, she skipped work and went to church. After missing work for six Sundays, her employment was terminated.

Pierre sued her former company for terminating her employment, and a jury in federal court ruled in her favour on Monday, granting her $21 million in damages, plus $35,000 in back wages and $500,000 for emotional pain and mental anguish.

Basketmouth’s reaction  is hilarious

“ $21m??!!!! And Globacom tour was on Sundays that year oh!!!! kai....and I don’t play with my Sundays oh!!! $21m.....N7.5BN...Kai!!”

Does Basketmouth want a $21 million(7.5billionNaira) compensation from the telecom giant, Glo?
