ABC7: Tour Guide Comes Forward-Tries to Explain Racist Rant

posted by Randall

Tour Guide's racist rantThe tour guide who has gone viral with her racist rant during a tour of San Francisco Chinatown has talked exclusively to KGO/ABC7.

The woman who no longer works for City Sightseeing declined to give her name or allow her face to be shown. She told reporter Lisa Amin Gulezian “I intended to do it as a satirical comedic portion of the tour. My intention was to talk about the neighborhood and not to address the people in any way that would incite harm against them.”

She acknowledged she may have gone too far.

She requested to talk to San Francisco Supervisor David Chiu who has been outspoken about the incident.

    Re: Tour guide comes forward tries to explain racist rant about Chinatown:The tour guide has probably made racist statements before the video went viral. Who knows if there are other tour guides who have done the same w/o public knowledge. I would recommend that all tour guides be they in SF or elsewhere get an education about the Chinatowns that have tour buses going thru our communities.

    RE: Tour guide comes forward. Tries to explain racist rant: Her audience were German tourists. How are they supposed to know it’s satirical about a group of people they have little knowledge of? She is grasping at an empty beer.
