Online hospitality rental service Airbnb has banned one of its contractors after the housing host told an Asian customer she was not welcome because of her race.
According to reports, Dyne Suh posted on her Facebook page that the host of an Airbnb she was interested in had a racist attitude towards Asians and sited Trump in a message sent to her.
The following conversation happened with the host, according to Suh.
Host: “Go ahead, I wouldn’t rent to u if u were the last person on earth. One word says it all. Asian.”
Suh: “I will report to AirBNB that you are racist.”
Host: “Want something for nothing.”
Suh: “Good job. Say goodbye to airbnb.”
Host: “It’s why we have trump.”
Suh: “Say goodbye to airbnb. They will not tolerate your racism.”
The host also allegedly said, “If you think four people and two dogs ate getting a room fir $50 a night on Big Bear mountain during the busiest weekend of the year… You are insanely high.”
The Blaze reports Suh showed the message to a local news van that was conveniently parked nearby and said, “It stings that after living in the U.S. for over 23 years, this is what happens. No matter if I follow the law, if I’m kind to people, no matter how well I treat others — it doesn’t matter. If you’re Asian, you’re less than human and people can treat you like trash.”
A spokesperson for Airbnb said the host is permanently banned from its services.
