An Uber driver has been fired and had his license suspended for discrimination after he forced two kissing women to get out of his car, the Sky News website reports today (June 12, 2018).
The lesbian couple -- Alex Lovine and Emma Pichl -- were traveling from Brooklyn to Manhattan on June 9 when they exchanged what they described as a "peck" on the lips. The two women have been living together for two years.
They claimed the driver, Ahmad El Boutari, kicked them out of the car for kissing.
Allen Fromberg, spokesman for the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, said that what the driver had done was "unacceptable and repugnant" and "will not be tolerated."
