Airbnb took down a listing on Monday of a Mississippi property that had housed slaves following a viral TikTok criticizing the platform for the "slave cabin" advertised as a bed-and-breakfast.
New Orleans lawyer Wynton Yates slammed the company in a TikTok video last week and posted screenshots of the Greenville, Mississippi, listing advertised as "The Panther Burn Cottage at Belmont Plantation."
The screenshot's description says the property is an "1830s slave cabin" that was also used as a "tenant sharecroppers cabin" and a "medical office for local farmers and their families."
Yates' video was viewed more than 2.6 million times.
