A Virginia man is suing Airbnb after he claims that he was racially discriminated against by the popular house sharing website.
Gregory Selden, 25, attempted to rent a place to stay in Philadelphia for a few days since often times the prices on the site for accommodations are cheaper than hotels.
The Richmond native explained to NBC 12 that he loved a housing option on Airbnb and promptly contacted the owner.
‘In this ad, it said ‘stay in the heart of Philadelphia.’ I was like ‘this is cool. 78 bucks, this is a good deal’,’ Selden said.
