Bollywood actress and the sister of Kajol, Tanishaa Mukherji who reached New York to attend CRY America charity gala faced an unfortunate incident there. As per the reports, the actress faces racism by an employee at a hotel.
As revealed by the actress herself, one of the African-American hotel employees made an insensitive and racist remark about her. The actress said, “I don’t understand what triggered it as I was polite, but he turned rude. One of the employees, an African-American, said that we looked as if we were fresh off the boat and couldn’t speak English. That was insulting and blatantly racist. My friends and I were shocked. It’s traumatic to experience this kind of racism in the US; I have never faced it earlier.”
She also blamed the hotel staff by saying it was unsupportive as they refused her request to call the cops to address the matter. The actress tried to record it but was asked to stop it.
Calling the incident unfortunate, she added, “I was trying to record the incident on my camera. The video I posted online ends abruptly because the guy stopped me and told me to switch my recorder off. It’s unfortunate when you experience something like this in a land that stands for rights and liberty. I am saddened that an African-American behaved like this, considering they have experienced discrimination themselves.”
