Mum Traci Redford says that she was traveling with her daughter Abcde (pronounced Ab-city) from John Wayne International Airport to Texas.

Traci and her daughter always pre-board flights because Abcde has epilepsy.

Mum says the agent made fun of her name and shared a photo of her boarding pass on social media for others to laugh!

"The gate agent started laughing, pointing at me and my daughter, talking to other employees. So I turned around and said, 'Hey if I can hear you, my daughter can hear you, so I'd appreciate if you'd just stop,'" she said.

Traci told everything to abc7, and then posted a photo of the pass on her Facebook page.

On Facebook, others also joined in mocking the little girl's name.

Later, Southwest Airlines is apologizing after a gate agent apparently mocked a 5-year-old girl's name.

"We extend our sincere apology to the family. We take great pride in extending our Southwest Hospitality to all of our Customers, which includes living by the Golden Rule and treating every individual with respect, in person or online. The post is not indicative of the care, respect, and civility we expect from all of our Employees. We have followed up with the Employee involved, and while we do not disclose personnel actions publicly, we are using this as an opportunity to reinforce our policies and emphasize our expectations for all Employees." they apologized.
