  • The host who has not been identified has refused to give any comment on the issue

A woman named Dyne Suh booked an Airbnb with her fiancé and two of their friends in Running Springs, California, for the President's Day weekend.

A spokesman for the company told KTLA that the host has since been banned from the service.

"This behavior is abhorrent and unacceptable", Papas said.

While Suh was headed up to the cabin in stormy weather, she sent a text message to the host to confirm the reservation for four people.

"I wouldn't rent it to u (sic) if u (sic) were the last person on earth", the host told Suh in a text exchange that was shown to NBC4.

In the video, the distraught guest says she's an American citizen.

The group set out on February 17 for the cabin and encountered a harsh winter storm with flash-flood warnings and risky driving conditions. She canceled on us when we were three minutes away from the house, we're three minutes away.

She explained how the booking went awry after the host accepted two extra guests to Ms Suh's original booking.

Race relations student Suh, who has been living in the United States since she was three-years-old, took screenshots of the exchange between herself and the host and informed the woman she would be reporting the racist incident to Airbnb.

A crew from Los Angeles-based KTLA 5 News happened to be parked near Suh and her group and conducted Suh's first interview there on the mountain with a smartphone. She said the U.S.is the only country she considers "home". "It stings. It stings that after living in the USA for over 23 years, this is what happens". The host, identified as "Tami" in the images, also called Suh "a con artist" and canceled the reservation.

Hours after her original Facebook post, Suh wrote in the early morning hours of March 18 that her group had found another place to stay, a "cute cabin" near the mountain.

"No matter what class you are, no matter what your education level, no matter if you're an American citizen - what they see is that I'm Asian, what they see is my race and this is how we get treated".

"This host has been permanently removed from the platform".
