Tami Barker canceled Dyne Suh's Airbnb reservation because she is Asian. Now she'll pay.
Remember the racist Airbnb host who canceled a guest's reservation because the woman was Asian? She has been ordered to pay $5,000 in damages and take a course in Asian American studies.
In February, Dyne Suh was en route to a ski vacation with friends in Big Bear, California, where she had reserved a cabin through Airbnb. But when she messaged the host, Tami Barker, to confirm the reservation, Barker abruptly refused to rent it to Suh. And she made her reasons pretty clear.
"I wouldn't rent it to u if u were the last person on earth," Barker texted. "One word says it all. Asian."
When Suh said she'd complain to Airbnb about the racist remark, Barker replied, "It's why we have Trump… and I will not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners."
What? You think Trump in the White House gets you a do-racist-shit-for-free card? Nope.
