Racism in Tirol: taxi driver vs German TV presenter

racismA racist attack is reported from the famous Tirolean holiday destination of Ischgl.

The victim was a German TV presenter. A local taxi driver said a racist word to him. Maybe it was the offensive word “Piefke”, which is a depreciative expression in Austria for someone from Germany.

This is only a supposition, because more details about the racist insult are not known.

The reaction of the insulted TV presenter from Germany was clear and direct. He knocked the taxi driver down, and damaged his car.

The impulsive TV presenter was reported to the police. His TV station knows about the incident. “We are against racism and understand the reaction of our colleague”, says the spokesman of the TV station. The spokesman confirmed that the powerful TV presenter does not have to fear to lose his job.
