Ugh, chile! When hosting Airbnb parties, it’s usually a fun and relaxed gathering of friends, but the mood can change when unexpected guests arrive. This was the case in North Dallas last Sunday. A viral video surfaced online showing partygoers destroying their belongings inside an Airbnb, including a flat-screen TV and furniture. TSR reached out to Ken, the woman who hosted the party, to determine what caused the incident and to detail what was not captured on video.
Ken explained that he told partygoers, who allegedly parked 12 cars deep, that the party had been over for at least an hour and a half, and that they were not welcome inside the house. Before the partygoers arrived, the police had been called to Airbnb, so Ken made it clear that he didn’t want anyone else inside. However, one of the partygoers said her friend was still inside and refused to leave the property. The party goers proceeded to enter the house and Ken, frustrated, repeatedly asked them to leave. Ken told TSR that he unplugged the speaker, but one of the partygoers plugged it back in. During that time, some of the women who stayed on Airbnb had problems with some of the partygoers, and that was compounded when the situation.
Ken walked up the stairs briefly, but was alerted that one of his friends was being attacked, so they all started fighting and one of the partygoers reportedly pulled out a gun. After the fight was over, Ken said the partygoers felt cheated because they drove more than 40 minutes to attend the party. Eventually the partygoers left, so Ken went back upstairs. It was then that he heard more than 20 shots, resulting in a man being injured. Currently, his condition and injuries are unknown.
Authorities once again arrived at the home and began investigating the matter, but no information is available on the charges at this time. With everything that happened on Airbnb, Ken left without consequences because it was his friend’s name on the Airbnb reservation. It is unclear if Ken’s friend will be responsible for the damage to the house while the incident is investigated. Still, you can no longer rent another property, as the company banned it on the website.
