Actress Tanishaa Mukerji said that she faced racism at The Jane Hotel, New York where she was residing during her stay. In a statement to a US daily, she said that one member of the hotel staff passed nasty remarks on her while she was partying inside the club with her buddies.
Former Bigg Boss contestant said that the employee was downright abusive towards her. It seems the employee said that it looked like her friends and she could not speak English. This is the first time, she said she has encountered racism in the US. When they complained to the hotel staff no one came forward to address the matter and give them an apology. She shares a video of the time when she apparently faced the comments from the hotel employee.
Last year also former MTV reality show contestant Sidharth Bhardwaj faced ugly discrimination in Sydney, Australia.TV actor Vivek Dahiya also faced racist treatment in Budapest. He said that Budapest is the first city where he faced discrimination. There were a few small incidents in the first few days, but I shrugged them off thinking that they were either coincidences or the locals were not warm. However, I soon realized that they chose to behave in a certain way towards outsiders.
