Ari Teman, Airbnb Operator and 'Freak Fest' Orgy Victim, Now Homeless

By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 04:25 PM

Ari Teman, a New York comedian, says he’s homeless after Airbnb allowed a “XXX Freak Fest” orgy to completely trash his apartment, causing area landlords to blacklist him so he can’t get an apartment.

In a Tumblr post on Tuesday, Teman told Airbnb, “You need to fix this,” and then elaborated on what had happened since the orgy destroyed his apartment.

“I’m not homeless because of finances — though the unimagined debt and massive amount of lost work caused by your orgy hasn’t helped — but because thanks to Airbnb I’m on a blacklist and cannot get a legitimate lease in all of New York City,” he wrote. “Brokers refuse to help me after looking me up and finding I’m on the blacklist. One building management refused to even accept a full year’s up-front payment because I was on the blacklist.”

Teman said he’s had to sleep in more than 20 different places and can’t find a permanent residence since losing his lease over the Airbnb fiasco.

After he went public with his story, Teman also said on Tumblr that he’s being harassed by Airbnb employees online.

On his Twitter feed, Teman has been occasionally able to joke about what happened to him:



Jakob Kerr, a spokesperson for Airbnb, told the New York Daily News that the company "took immediate action to find Ari a safe place to stay and reimbursed him," adding that the man who held the orgy in Teman’s apartment was removed from the Airbnb community.

The Daily Mail reported that Airbnb also sent a locksmith to change Teman’s apartment locks.

“Over 11 million guests have had a safe and positive experience on Airbnb and problems for hosts and guests are incredibly rare, but when they happen, we try to help make things right,” the company said right after the 2014 incident.
