‘I’m Just So Shocked’: Black Woman’s Miami Beach Vacation Booking Goes Completely Left After Rental Owner Launches Into Racist Tirade

A Black traveler is speaking out after she claims she was on the receiving end of a virulently racist tirade by a Miami Beach condo owner.

Monifah Brown thought she’d found the perfect spot for herself and her friends for their upcoming girls trip to Miami Beach, Florida. Brown, a 24-year-old from London, scored a reservation last week at the oceanside condo unit on popular travel site Booking.com, according to the Miami New Times.

All seemed well until Brown took too long to respond to a message from the condo’s owner, Giulia Ozyesilpinar, who rents out units at the Ocean Five Condo Hotel. Screenshots of their exchange posted to social media showed Ozyesilpinar repeatedly call Brown the n-word and a “monkey,” amid a host of other racist insults.

n one of the texts, Ozyesilpinar tells Brown, 24, there appears to be an issue with her credit card before quickly coming more aggressive and calling the young woman a “n—-r” after she takes a few hours to respond.

“Are you there? Or are you acting like you are ignoring me?” her message read, followed by: “You acting with lies gives a very very bad picture for all of the black people. Please try to act like a lady and be good representation of black people and not a lying untrustable [sic] person giving bad name to black people.”

But the insults didn’t stop there; in a later message, Ozyesilpinar asks Brown if she’s a prostitute.

Texts and recordings obtained by the Miami New Times also captured the rental owner saying “You are a n—-r” and making monkey sounds before asking, “You want banana Africa?” The outlet reported that Ozyesilpinars even posted a video to YouTube featuring Brown’s ID next to a picture of a monkey.
