Six employees of the British bank HSBC were fired following the discovery of a video that took things a little too far, according to Mediate.

The Sun reports that the ISIS-themed video was made during a team-building exercise and posted online. It was later deleted, but not before being seen by other HSBC employees.

The employees who were involved in the video were fired by HSBC and the company offered an apology, via a statement and tweet, according to CNN Money. First the statement:

We do not tolerate inappropriate behaviour.

The tweet with the apology:

This isn't the first time the bank has been in the center of controversy. The Guardian wrote in 2014 that HSBC was among several banks fined for their role in rigging foreign exchange markets. Investopedia notes that in 2013 the bank was caught in a money laundering scandal.
