Airbnb Removes Listing Of Anti-Gay Property Owner


Airbnb does not tolerate discrimination. Just ask the Texas Homeowner who's Bed And Breakfast was removed from Airbnb's listings. The irony is she is within her legal rights to do so in the state of Texas. There is also no Federal law protecting Gays and Lesbians from discrimination in public accommodations.  
Airbnb has removed a Texas bed and breakfast from its listings after its host reportedly kicked out a gay couple.
Jonathan Wang told KTRK-TV that he and his partner, Brent, booked two nights at the home in Galveston for a friend's wedding. The home's owner, identified in media reports simply as Heather, confronted Wang when he returned after the reception.
"Heather asked me where my wife was," he said. The situation became awkward when Heather asked who Brent was.
"She said, 'I thought you were bringing a wife,'" Wang recalled. "I said, 'I didn't say that specifically ... is that going to be OK? She said, 'It's not.'"
