Monifah Brown, a 24-year-old event planner from London, had been planning to rent out Giulia Ozyesilpinar’s ‘Ocean Five Condo Hotel’ right on Ocean Drive with three of her friends when the incident occurred.
Conversations between the two started pleasantly on WhatsApp on June 16 with Ozyesilpinar requesting the down payment for the listing (pictured)
The event planner asked for a breakdown of the payment before explaining that her group needed until June 28 – their payday – to pay the deposit. After Brown was told that the dates couldn’t be held, she offered to pay the full amount on June 28.
Ozyesilpinar was confused by what Brown was asking, however, and early on was under the impression that the 24-year-old was trying to pay for the trip on multiple cards.
Brown quickly explained that that wasn’t the case and that they would be paying the full price but then the condo owner asserted: ‘One of you has a credit card, I am sure.’
Ozyesilpinar requested that Brown share her age and send over a copy of her driver’s license and email – which the event planner happily complied with.
The exchange was mostly pleasant until June 21 when Ozyesilpinar sent Brown text messages about her credit card but was unable to reach her.
‘Are you there or are you acting like you are ignoring me,’ she said in the messages.
‘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 a very good representation of black.’
Ozyesilpinar was repeatedly calling Brown a ‘n****r’ and a ‘monkey’ while also asking if the event planner was a ‘prostitute’ after the event planner failed to respond to her fast enough
Brown eventually responded on Friday and informed Ozyesilpinar that she had been ‘setting up a venue from 6am,’ too busy to check her WhatsApp.
‘After your recent racist messages that you text to my phone, I now no longer feel comfortable staying in your property’ she stated. ‘Thank you so much for showing your true colors. I suggest next time you learn to have some class like this ‘black woman’ racist b***h.’
Ozyesilpinar retorted by repeatedly calling Brown a ‘n****r’ and a ‘monkey’ while also asking if the event planner was a ‘prostitute.’
Brown laughed at the racist behavior, telling Ozyesilpinar that she was sending the info to Booking.com and Airbnb. The owner told her to ‘shut your monkey mouth.’
Ozyesilpinar then sent audio recordings to Brown, appearing to growl at Brown and call her a ‘n****r’ while making monkey noises at her.
Brown sent her own audio recording laughing at Ozyesilpinar for her racist attitude and for going viral.
The condo owner also sent Brown two YouTube videos that were supposed to show what African monkeys sound like.
Booking.com eventually removed the condo from its website after Brown and her friend’s post of the incident went viral.

‘Thanks for making us aware of this situation. We do not tolerate discriminatory behaviour of any kind on Booking.com and have closed this property on our site,’ they said on
Reviews listed on Google soon began calling the owner out for her behavior but Ozyesilpinar then responded under the post saying ‘n****r.’ Those have since been deleted.
Ozyesilpinar posted Brown’s driver’s license to Facebook and equated her to being ‘like Jussie Smollett and other race card’ pullers.

She claimed that Brown harassed her first before adding that she has black friends and voted for Hillary Clinton.
Ozyesilpinar asserted that she didn’t mind her usage of ‘monkey’ because ‘being racist is not illegal.’
‘We live in a free world,’ she said to the
