A young American travel blogger who stayed in India for three weeks posted a heartbreaking video detailing her alleged experiences of harassment, sexual harassment and assault by male employees at two different hotels she stayed at.
Jordan Taylor, who goes through Travellight on his YouTube channel, nervously spoke on a Saturday vlog about his hellish encounters in the nation's capital, New Delhi.
"This is not going to be an easy video to do today … I really do not know how to present this, so I'm going to try to go straight to him," he said for the first time in the video.
"About two months ago, I arrived in India and spent more than three weeks [there]. In general, my trip to India was great. I really loved it, I saw something amazing, I had great adventures.
"I do not want to be very negative, but at the same time, I am always honest with you and this is something that continues to affect me deeply."

Jordan had been staying with her boyfriend, Livio, for most of the getaway that went from fun to horrible.
Her first spooky encounters supposedly took place in a five-star hotel where she and her boyfriend settled down.
The blogger said that the men inside the hotel caressed her and whispered in her ear sexually explicit things while the couple was standing in the lobby.
& # 39; Men who passed by randomly approached and grabbed me, touched me, pointed at me.
& # 39; This guy who was passing, tilted his face here [motions toward her neck] and he just told me, "I want to fuck you, right in my face, with Livio by my side."
Jordan added: "I was already overwhelmed by that, so I had a five-star hotel give my personal information, my full name, my room number to a stalker."
By then, the couple had enough, and decided to register at another hotel, which received the name, the OYO hotel on Main Bazaar Road in Paharganj, Delhi.

The couple was in India for three weeks. Jordan was alone towards the end of the trip
She wrote in this August 2017 post on Twitter: "Trust & # 39;
Livio had to return home shortly after his arrival. His flight was four days before Jordan.
The couple thought it would be safer if they left the hotel early in the morning to make employees believe that they were still there.
"They were downstairs in the lobby … they definitely knew he was gone … they knew that I was now alone in this hotel.
"From that very morning, they began to act completely differently from me."
She said that when she was alone, a man followed her upstairs, called her room and said "Heyyyy babyyyy! & # 39; before hanging up
Taylor said: "They called the room again and it was quiet and without saying anything.
"The next day, they call the room, I pick up and they were just making sexual noises … breathing in. There's no way this is normal breathing on the phone."
Then, things got even weirder two days before his flight when a man supposedly came to his door and asked to enter the room.
When she did not open the door, the man left briefly and came back an hour later, when he started hitting again.
When she did not let him in, Jordan said he had heard him flip it (the main switch).
Jordan shared a clip on her vlog of the nightmare hotel visit, when a hotel employee allegedly turned off her AC, as well as her Wifi after she refused to leave it in her room
The man asked him several times to open the door, which he said was "broken".

She continued: "It was a very different sound … immediately knocking on my door and saying:" Hi! The air conditioning is broken. We have to go in and fix it. Open the door and we'll come fix it. the AC. "& # 39;
& # 39; It was right outside my door. There were more people who came, I do not know who. They played and said open the door. Then turn off the WiFi and say the same story: they need to enter and fix the WiFi.
Jordan even shared a clip on the vlog that showed a shadow outside his door. After she opened up about the alleged incidents, Taylor started crying.
"This video is something traumatic that happened to me … I felt it was right to share this, or rather, that it would be a mistake to simply sweep it under the rug and silence me about it."
His vlog received more than 226,000 visits as of Wednesday afternoon.
The Indian website, Firstpost, later confirmed that the OYO Hotel on Main Bazaar Road has been closed since then.
