New Delhi:

A video clip of a US journalist making fun of an Indian reporter during US President Donald Trump's press conference at the White House on February 26 has gone viral. In the video, Indian journalist Raghubir Goyal can be seen asking a question about India-US relationships post Trump’s maiden visit to the country. While the reporter was asking the question, the NY Post reporter, who was sitting behind him, was seen making faces and laughing at him.

A Twitter user with the handle @damonimani shared the video with the caption, "Who is that reporter in the green mocking an Indian reporter? I bet she thinks Trump is racist."

The video went viral in no time and Twitter was angry over the behaviour of the American journalist, identified as Ebony Bowden. The video has garnered over 3 million views. Many users accussed her of being racist and for laughing at the reporter's accent. While one user commented, ''She says ''who is this guy?'' Was she put off that he got called to ask a question and she didn't? I’m embarrassed for her.'' Another commented, ''And She Had The Nerve To Say "Who Is This Guy?"

A Twitter user also posted a high-resolution video of the question asked by the reporter and Trump's response to it.

Bowden’s friend, Aussie ministerial staffer Elliot Stein stepped in to share this viewpoint.

However, he also got slammed by netizens for his statement.
