Airbnb’s War on Porn Stars: ‘They Locked Me Out’

The Daily Beast: AirBNB’s War on Porn Stars

Since [porn star Sara] Jay was not filming on the premises, nor did she have any complaints, it seems odd that Airbnb had discovered she was a porn star—unless someone within the company recognized her. Even so, according to the Airbnb non-discrimination policy, this should be a community of acceptance: “As the Airbnb community grows, we will continue to ensure that Airbnb’s policies and practices align with our most important goal: To ensure that guests and hosts feel welcome and respected in all of their interactions using the Airbnb platform. The public, our community, and we ourselves, expect no less than this.”

Since Airbnb boasts more listings than the top 5 hotel chains combined, their behavior, like making it acceptable to discriminate against porn stars, could have a much larger impact. Sara Jay worries about what this means for the future. “Imagine a hotel chain saying that to you? We won’t accept your reservation because you are an adult film star?” asks Jay.

With the DailyBeast that is mighty likely.

When I first started reading, I though ‘what’s a porn star anyway? Do they really consider themselves to be stars?’

The giveaway was this quote:

I’ve never shot porn in any Airbnbs in my name,

I noticed that as well. An interesting qualification.

I thought that’s why they all had a Presidential Suite. :japanese_goblin:
