A gay man says that an Airbnb host in Austin rejected him because of his sexual orientation.

Buddy Fisher told KHOU that the host canceled his booking because he's gay.

The Houston man booked a room in downtown Austin for next month's Pride festival.

“It asked me when I started the process why I was coming to Austin, and I told them I was going to Austin for the Pride festival,” Fisher said.

“It charged me the appropriate amount. Then about an hour later, I get a notice from Airbnb that the reservation was canceled.”

The host sent him a message which read, “No LGBT people please..... I do not support people who are against humanity ...sorry.”

Fisher said that the incident upset him because “I don't feel like I don't support humanity.”

Airbnb apologized for the incident and said that it has removed the lister from its service.
