AirBNB Host Throws Black Woman Renter Down Flight of Stairs

12 Jul

Wow…They have charged this moron with attempted murder.

Airbnb host pushes black woman down the stairs for checking out late

An Airbnb host in Amsterdam faced charges of attempts to murder after he pushed his South African guest down the stairs, which was captured by one of the victim’s friends, reports said Monday.

The victim, filmmaker Sibalhe Nkumbi, was in the city to review a friend’s art exhibition when the incident took place on Saturday.

The altercation took place while Nkumbi was checking out of her Airbnb lodging past her check-out time. This infuriated her woman host who asked them to leave immediately. Nkumbi said she and her friend apologized to the woman, who appeared to be angry about the inconvenience and left them alone to finish packing.

However, the woman returned with her husband, who Nkumbi said was extremely angry.

She said: “We knew that we were late and we heard a bell ring. We opened the door to this lady. She stated that this is not acceptable; you guys need to pack and leave now. And I was like, ‘Yes, give us a few minutes to pack,’ and I apologized profusely for us being late and we were getting ready to leave.”

“And that’s when she came back a few minutes later with the husband and he was banging the door,” Nkumbi added.

A video of the alleged assault was recorded and posted by Nkumbi’s friend Zanele Muholi on her Instagram account. Nkumbi also posted a video on YouTube explaining the entire incident.
