An Airbnb listing in Mississippi advertised as a “slave cabin” has been removed from the site following backlash on social media. ADVERTISEMENTAn Airbnb listing for "an 1830s slave cabin" has been removed from the rental site after a TikTok video about the property went viral. Airbnb said it removed the Mississippi listing from its site and is doing the same for other listings known to include former slave quarters in the United States.
