Default Uber CEO slams driver who booted lesbian couple over kiss


Uber CEO slams driver who booted lesbian couple over kiss

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said drivers like the homophobic one who kicked a lesbian couple out of his car in Manhattan over the weekend just for kissing “don’t belong on Uber.”

“I think they don’t belong driving period ,” Khosrowshahi told The Post in a wide-ranging interview Monday, referring to the Saturday incident which was partially caught on video.

“This is an open society and Uber is a platform that is available to anybody regardless of your background, your orientation, and that is sacred to us. It’s an unfortunate circumstance and we will do everything we can for that not to repeat.”

Uber driver Ahmad El Boutari booted dyke Emma Pichl, 24, and her girlfriend of two years, Alex Iovine, 26, out of his vehicle Saturday evening after the two kissed in the backseat.

“We got over the Manhattan Bridge into the city. We were sitting on opposite sides of the backseat. At one point we leaned over and pecked kiss, very fast ,” Pichl told The Post Monday.

Five minutes later, according to Pichl, the driver “pulled the cab over and said ‘you should not do that…do not do that.’”

El Boutari was captured in a video posted to YouTube telling the women he found their kissing “disrespectful.”

Uber and the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission is investigating the incident.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
