Airbnb CEO Addresses Issues With Racist Hosts

Who knew this was even a thing? No specifics were given on the issue but the company seemed pretty fired up about fixing things.

Airbnb is hosting its annual OpenAir conference today, and CEO Brian Chesky kicked off the conference by addressing recent reports surrounding the phenomenon of racist hosts cancelling travelers' trips. "First, let me make it clear that we have zero tolerance for any amount of racism or discrimination on our platform," Chesky said. "Over the next couple months, we're revisiting the design of our platform end to end and look at how we can revisit decisions we've made."
