New York: Ananya Birla, the daughter of Aditya Birla Group’s chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla, has criticised a US restaurant for being “racist”, saying the Italian-American restaurant “literally threw” her and her family out of their premises.

Ananya, who is a singer and artist, took to Twitter to share her ordeal on Saturday, NDTV reported.

“This restaurant @ScopaRestaurant literally threw my family and I, out of their premises. So racist. So sad. You really need to treat your customers right. Very racist. This is not okay,” she tweeted.

The Scopa Italian Roots restaurant is an Italian-American dining place by Chef Antonia Lofaso in California.

“We waited for 3 hours to eat at your restaurant. @chefantonia Your waiter Joshua Silverman was extremely rude to my mother, bordering racist. This isn’’t okay,” Ananya wrote in another tweet, in which she tagged Lofaso.

Ananya’s mother Neerja Birla, who is a noted educationist and mental health activist, also lashed out at the restaurant for ill-treating them. “Very shocking… absolutely ridiculous behaviour by @ScopaRestaurant. You have no right to treat any of your customers like this,” she said.

“I have never experienced anything of this sort. Racism exists and is real. Unbelievable. @ScopaRestaurant,” her son Aryaman Birla tweeted.
