Six HSBC employees were fired this week after posting an Instagram video of what was referred to as a “team-building exercise” depicting themselves dressed as ISIS militants executing a prisoner in an orange jumpsuit, brandishing a coat hanger as if it were a weapon and laughing.

“Banking humor goes right over my head.”

“I’m used to this crap from Citigroup, but good old HSBC?”
