An Airbnb host who cancelled a reservation by sending a racist comment is now paying the price.
Back in February, 26-year-old law clerk Dyne Suh booked Tami Barker’s California cabin for a weekend of skiing with her fiancé, The Guardian reported. Suh made the four-hour drive to the cabin, but Barker canceled the reservation at the last minute, texting Suh a racist message to inform her the reservation had been cancelled.
Now, thanks to an investigation from Airbnb, Barker has been banned from the platform and has to pay $5,000 in damages for racial discrimination.
