A New York City nanny is suing a her former employer on grounds of racial discrimination, after the woman she was working for sent a racially charged text that was meant for her husband. 

The African-American nanny, Giselle Maurice, is asking for $350-a-day for a six-month job initially promised to her before the cringeworthy incident.

According to the New York Post, the woman at the center of this incident, Lynsey Plasco-Flaxman, found out their family was getting a new black nanny and allegedly texted, “NOOOOOOOOOOO, ANOTHER BLACK PERSON."

The text was originally met for her husband, Joel Plasco, but she mistakenly sent it to the new nanny, creating the controversy, the Daily Mail reports.

“[My wife] had sent her something that she didn’t mean to say. She’s not a racist. We’re not racist people,” Plasco, co-chairman of the Dalmore Group investment bank, told The Post on Friday.

Upon discovery of her mistake, the wife fired Maurice. The white couple expected a Filipino nanny.

“[I want] to show them, look, you don’t do stuff like that,” Maurice told The Post. The couple reportedly paid her for the one day’s work and an Uber home. 

The couple claimed they could not trust the nanny around their child after their text message mistake as the reason they decided to not keep her around.
