    A black man has nicknamed an Uber driver as #BigotBob after he kicked him out of his car, and called the cops on him for sounding gay.

    Chris Williams, a Washington D.C. resident, was on his way home from work when he requested the Uber ride in late June.

    Williams said he was on the phone with his grandfather using affectionate language. “As soon as [the driver] heard the word, ‘darling’ he pulled over. I was like wait this isn’t my stop,” Williams said.

    “[The driver] said ‘you actually need to get out of my car, because I’m not taking you anywhere.’ So I’m looking at this man like wait a minute. What’s wrong?” Williams said.

    The Uber driver refused to talk to Williams directly, and would only talk to the police. The driver reported to Uber that Williams was being “overly flirtatious” and “used physical contact.”

    “I just want to go home,” Williams said in the video.“What the f*ck is going on, and you want to sit here and be a bigot? I’m tired of this.”

    The police did not file a report and the Uber driver went home. Williams had to wait 30 minutes for another Uber to arrive.

    An Uber representative said in a statement: “We have a clear non-discrimination policy and take these types of reports very seriously. We have a dedicated team that investigates all reports of discrimination and will take appropriate action.”

    That "my cup is over flowing" line.

    Extra Gay, lol. LGBTQIA X

    Could have been a great Key and Peele skit, the flaming superheroes known as The Extra-Men

    Regardless of his extraness, I’m tired of rideshare bigots who think that service includes their being able to act like Kim Davis. We had a black female rideshare driver in Chicago pull a GUN on a gay couple...even though she chose to pick up the fare in Boystown, the well known gayborhood of the city. Smh

    Now, I wasn’t there so who knows what went down. Partly this is Uber’s fault for their “their not employees, they’re contractors” mentality which empowers these driving fools to think, “my car, my rules.”

    Amazingly, the stoicism of these cops, though, lol...

    Oh well, hunty, don’t worry. Uber is using these drivers for data collection anyway and they’ll be soon replaced by robot cars. Play the long game for revenge...

    As a rideshare driver, I must say that we can't discriminate against anyone. We can cancel a ride for safety.

    The problem is drivers use this gig and go in with the "My Car, My Rules" mindset when we are all just under contract. There are conservative/Republican drivers who purposely play conservative radio or try to get a reaction out of certain demographics. There's Christians who are trying to save souls on every ride and of course, the ones who don't like gays.

    On the flip side, it works both ways, riders can be aggressive as well with their beliefs.

    I am of the "get in, greet, confirm your destination, and shut up" types. You can never offend anyone by providing them a friendly greeting and being quiet for the rest of ride/drive. Usually, no one asks for your opinions on their life.

    I have had doctors, salesmen, strippers, trans, gay, straight, and escorts in my car.

    All I really care about is how much is this trip gonna net me and will it put me in a place where my next ride will net me equal or more money?

    This really isn't the type of gig for everyone. I am far from a people person, I'm introverted but I know how to play the game and turn on the charm.

    The funny thing is, if dude had asked for consent like a non-creep, all kinds of people would give him consent to video in this age of social media (saw another Uber driver on YouTube who does just that).

    I hope you’re doing well with your gig. To date, I haven’t had any problems with rideshare as a customer except for (sigh, it just had to be) an angry black woman in DC who was cussing out her sister on the phone during my trip (and almost dropped me off at the White House even though i told her what agency I worked for).

    I don’t mind conversation if it’s civil and interesting The last two official taxi rides I took for work travel, I (curiously) got the same middle aged Polish dude with long, heavy metal rock star hair, thick accent, and a gift of gab for trading in international commodities. Dude was fun as hell, and the ride to Ohare was cool shooting the shit about transportation economics and FOREX with some guy who looked like a burnt out, grizzled roadie for the Ozzie Osborne Krakow tour lol.
