The US airline was forced to apologize after the mother filed a lawsuit claiming that the staff member was ridiculed by the name of her daughter … named after Abcde.
The applauding mother, Traci Redford, is now widely ridiculed in social media to name her now a five-year-old kid Abcde – which, of course, was pronounced in the Ab-city. Many Twitter users were not surprised by the reaction of airline workers to name, while others asked why the mother thought she would name a child after the first five letters of the alphabet is a good idea.
According to Redford, an employee of Southwest Airlines who mistreated the name began to laugh, pointing to the mother and child, talking to other staff about it and even taking a photo of a child's embarkation. The image that mocks the name has been published in social media – where someone who knew the family was aware of it.
When I type "Abcde" in my phone, it is autocorribed to spell "abusing" by saying …

Redford told ABC7 that her baby was confused about why a staff member was ridiculing him. "She said," Mom, why is she laughing at my name? "And I said that not everyone is nice, and not everyone will be beautiful and it is unfortunate."
The Texan mother also claimed that the airline failed to react or react within two weeks of her complaint.

Does anyone seriously call his child "ABCDE?" An "ab-city" is pronounced. 🤦♂️ #nothisisntajoke

Yugoslavia spokesman Chris Mainz offered a family a "Sincere apology" in a statement for Buzzfeed News. Mainz added that the employees' social media became "It is not an indicator of care, respect and civility" expected from airline workers.
Data from 2014 shows that Abcde's fairly unique name is actually shared by 328 other people in the United States.
