When Suh told Barker that she would complain to Airbnb, Barker wrote, "It's why we have Trump ... I will not allow this country to be told what to do by foreigners."
The host was fined $5,000, plus, she had to take a course on how to like Asian people.
I think even Trump would call this a bad business move and an utter lack of common business sense. The cancellation caused the host more than $5,000. She didn't get paid for the rent he was supposed to get. Now, she also has to drive somewhere and waste the gas money and time to take a class. Plus, she hired a lawyer, who was going to charge her $$$.
I certainly don't have $5,000+ sitting around in my pocket and waiting to be thrown away.
