From Charleston Post Courier:
GREENVILLE, Miss. — An Airbnb listing in Mississippi advertised as a “slave cabin” has been removed from the site following backlash on social media.
Airbnb apologized after a TikTok video went viral criticizing the description of a cottage in Greenville, near the Arkansa border. The bed and breakfast was marketed as an “1830s slave cabin.”
The “meticulously restored” property, complete with a new television and premium streaming channels, was described as a “tenant sharecropper’s cabin and a medical office for local farmers and their families to visit the plantation doctor.”
The listing caught the attention of Wynton Yates, a Black lawyer from New Orleans.
