Ananya Birla slams US restaurant for being racist

The Aditya Birla Group Chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla’s daughter, Ananya has criticised a US- based Italian-American dining place for being racist, and said the restaurant literally threw her and her family out of their premises.

Ananya, who is a singer by profession shared the incident on Twitter. The singer had gone to the Scopa Italian Roots restaurant in California with her mother Neerja and brother Aryaman. She along with her family had waited three hours to eat in a place run by Chef Antonia Lofaso. One of the waiters, Joshua Silverman behaved rudely with her mother bordering racism, Birla said, adding it is not okay.

Retweeting the daughter’s post, educationist Neerja Birla also lashed out at the restaurant for their alleged ill-behaviour. Even her son and cricketer Aryaman Birla came in support and wrote that racism exists and it is real.
