Aaron Brown, 27, said his friend Ryan Ottey kissed his forehead in an Uber in Sydney, Australia, and immediately afterward, their driver told them to get out.
Brown complained to Uber afterward, but said he was disappointed with the “generic” response. They offered to refund the trip but didn’t call him to make sure the pair were okay, he said. Ottey filmed the interaction between them and the Uber driver for proof.
“We were just dumbfounded and thought it was a joke so we questioned him and asked why. He just repeated himself and said ‘I can’t drive you anymore, this is my car and I’m not driving that’ – talking about us,” Brown said, according to Pink News.
An Uber spokesperson told 9news.com.au that the company doesn’t tolerate discrimination. Brown said it was sad this is still happening in 2019.
