An NFL player booked an Airbnb stay and ran into some major problems due to an unreasonable host.
The player, Tyler Lockett, a wide receiver on the Seattle Seahawks had his booking canceled by the host just one week before his stay.
The reason for the cancellation is quite surprising.
Lockett tweeted, “I booked this Airbnb. And this man responded and said why are you staying at my house. Basically your overqualified and canceled my request.” Lockett also said that the host felt he should spend his money on more expensive properties due to his net worth!
The Seahawks player sent a tweet to @Airbnb saying he needed credit on his next booking due to the situation and in the end… they took care of the problem.
There’s no mention about whether or not the new property Lockett got was nicer than the original but at least Airbnb solved the problem. I’d expect the company to also penalize the host who canceled.
