Uber fires driver who kicked gay couple out of car for kissingPosted: Updated:
Uber has fired a driver who kicked two Camden County women out of her car after they kissed, the company confirmed in a statement.
One of the women, Kristin Gauthier, recorded the incident and had posted it on her personal Facebook page – and it went viral.
She says the driver told them to get out of the car because their lifestyle violated her beliefs.
According to NJ.com, the women were on their way to a Zac Brown Band concert Friday night in Camden when one of the women leaned over and gave the other woman a kiss on the cheek.
After that, the driver pulled over and demanded they get out.
In a statement, the company says, “Uber does not tolerate discrimination in any form and we have been in contact with this rider. We removed the driver’s access to the app as soon as we were made aware of this incident.”
