Daimler executive removed after ‘racist rant’ in China

Business & Technology

"Germany's Daimler, parent of Mercedes-Benz, said it ‘sincerely’ apologized for the concerns raised by the incident,” in which a senior executive of the carmaker’s China business was “accused of yelling racist abuse during an altercation over a car parking space in Beijing.” This follows two tense points in recent German-Chinese relations, one a similar incident with Germany’s European commissioner, the other a canceled deal with German semiconductor company Aixtron.
