But Mr Brooks said: 'I understand that, but you called me a f*ckin n*gger.'

'I'm sorry, I'm sorry,' she said.

But he added: 'No, you weren't sorry when you said it on the phone. It's above me now.'

While the woman was on her way to the hotel, Mr Brooks had called his manager and told them about the racist slur.

They said the company had a zero-tolerance policy on racism towards its staff and allowed him to refuse her a room despite her family already being checked in.    

The woman said: 'I need a room tonight.'

Mr Brooks recommended the Best Western hotel that was next door.

The video was recorded on Snapchat and went viral, with more than four million people having seen it.

It led to the phrases 'Best Western' and 'It's above me' trending on Twitter after it was first posted on Sunday.

Twitter users made light of the incident.

One posted: 'Manager calling on your day off... Hey can you come in, we’re short... #It's above me.'

Another wrote: 'The Best Western is next door - queen elizabeth.'

And one added: 'When people did u wrong and wanna get back in your good graces but you already told your mom about them. #ItsAboveMe.'

But Mr Brooks took the incident less lightly, and said he was extremely shocked by the racial slur.

He told Insider: 'This is the first time I can remember I've been called a racial slur. 

He video was uploaded to Twitter and lots of users found it funny. But Mr Brooks said he was extremely shocked by the racial slur

'I'm in Austin, and Austin is very liberal so you don't have to deal with stuff like that.

'It amazes me that people still think like that and it's 2019.'   

The woman left the hotel and stayed at the Best Western.
