The Air Force Reserve quickly distanced itself from a 20-year-old recruit who said in a viral video, "You get them n*****s," according to published reports.

What happened

The woman was identified as Tabitha Duncan. She “is in the process of being released from her enlistment in the Air Force,” Lt. Col. Chad Gibson told the Air Force Times.

“It’s detestable, and we don't tolerate it, that’s for sure,” Gibson, deputy director of public affairs for Air Force Reserve Command, told the publication. “The content of this video released ... does not reflect the values of the Air Force. We are using command channels to address the issue.”

The video surfaced just days after she enlisted, according to reports.

Duncan was also fired from her waitress job at the Social Bar & Grill in St. Louis after management there saw the video.

A restaurant spokesperson said Duncan was immediately terminated after the “vile, disgusting and offensive video" surfaced, the Daily News reported.

What did she say in the video?

In the video, Duncan and a group of friends are using racial epithets as they drive down a dark road.

Someone not seen on camera says, “So we going n****r hunting today or what?”

“We’re going n****r hunting,” a second person responds.

Then Duncan said, “you get them n*****s.”

“I was underage drinking and I said something stupid,” Duncan told the Daily News.

Duncan apologized and also said that she has black friends, which proves she's not a racist.

“I was intoxicated. I have black friends, I have black people in my family, I didn’t mean it," she told the Daily News.
