Full Story:Uber has fired a New Jersey driver for kicking out two female passengers for being gay, according to a new report.
Kristin Michele and Jenn Mangan had grabbed a ride-share car from their home in Oaklyn to a concert in Camden on Friday night when Michele leaned over and gave Mangan a kiss on the cheek.
Their driver flipped out — and ordered them out of the car, saying she was a Christian woman who “didn’t believe in that,” Michele told NJ.com.
“Are you kicking me out because I’m gay?” Michele asked the driver soon after she started filming the angry exchange.
“Yes, I am. Yes,” the driver admitted, getting increasingly angry as she repeatedly demanded, “Get out!” — even reaching to try to knock away Michele’s phone.
“You’ve gotta be f—ing kidding me. It is 2019 [and] you’re kicking me out because I’m gay,” Michelle replied, before the couple eventually got out of the car and caught a train to the Zac Brown Band show instead.
