The American diplomatic couple kicked out of India in tit-for-tat action in the Devyani Khobragade case was racist.


The couple triggered a new controversy by posting offensive comments about their former host country on Facebook.

Alicia Muller May wrote on her Facebook page that Indian vegetarians were responsible for a wave of violence.

According to the New York Post, she wrote on the social networking site that it's the vegetarians that are doing the raping, not the meat eaters.

She added that the comment applied only to Indians and not to westerners.

May, who worked as a US community liaison officer in New Delhi, put up a picture of a cow, regarded by Hindus as sacred, in a separate post and labeled it 'stupid cow,' the report said.

Someone responded to her post saying that she had just insulted their god.

According to the report, May and her husband Wayne, who was in the US embassy's security department, were identified by Indian media as the American couple who were expelled in retaliation for the expulsion of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade.

Khobragade was arrested last month on charges she kept her Indian domestic worker in virtual servitude.

Indian media revealed the Mays' criticized India's air, water, traffic, health conditions and even the Indian diet on Facebook.
