Nikki Haley 'shocked' by Time editor's 'giving bigger tips to Sikh taxi drivers' question

Washington, Sat, 07 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 7 (ANI): South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was shocked after she was asked whether she would give bigger tips to Sikh taxi drivers while in New York City during an interview, her office has revealed.

The Indian-American Republican had responded graciously to the Time magazine editor's question, but on Friday her office revealed the governor's true emotions.

"Governor Haley was shocked to have been asked the question, especially after the Time editor had just read the governor's book," Fox News quoted her spokesman Rob Godfrey, as saying.

The Times editor Belinda Luscombe, asked Haley, who was in New York promoting her book 'Can't Is Not an Option,' if she would give the city's Sikh taxi driver 'a slightly bigger tip'.

"In New York City, which you're visiting for a couple of days, a lot of our taxi drivers are Sikhs. If you get one, are you going to give them a slightly bigger tip?" Luscombe asked.

Haley, raised by her parents in the Sikh tradition, seemed unfazed at that time, laughing a bit and saying, "Oh, I give the same tip to everyone." (ANI)
