Ananya Birla, daughter of Kumar Mangalam Birla (Chairman of Aditya Birla Group) and Neerja Birla, called out an Italian-American restaurant for its racist treatment of her and her family. The 26-year-old singer/songwriter took to Twitter claiming that the staff of a restaurant in Washington ‘literally threw’ her family out. 

Ananya wrote on Twitter: This restaurant Scopa Restaurant 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.


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.

Entrepreneur and wife of business tycoon Kumar Mangalam Birla, Neerja Birla termed it ‘very shocking.’ 

Her brother Aryaman Birla, a cricketer, too, wrote that racism was real and the incident was ‘unbelievable.’

Actors Karanvir Bohra and Rannvijay Singh also condemned the incident.
