Tanisha told the news daily, "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."

Tanisha then revealed how the hotel staff refused to cooperate with her. "We didn't get any support from the hotel staff. I told them to call the cops, but they refused to do so," Tanishaa Mukerji Gives It Back To Trolls Who Body-Shamed Her For Losing Weight.
