Uber bans rider for life after threat to accuse driver of rape

According to an Uber spokesperson, the Bronx woman who berated an Uber driver and threatened to accuse him of rape has been banned from using the app for life.

“The behavior in this video is abusive and completely unacceptable,” an Uber spokesperson said in a statement, adding, “As our Community Guidelines make clear, this will not be tolerated by anyone who uses Uber. The rider’s account has been banned and Uber is looking into this incident.”

The woman’s behavior was captured on video as she yelled at the Uber driver, at one point telling him that “Donald Trump going to send you and your family back [to your country].” At another point in the video, she threatens to scream that he is attempting to rape her.

Apparently, the argument began when she asked the driver for an iPhone charger, but the driver did not have one.

“If I don’t have a charger, politely ask me. I’ll politely tell you, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t have a charger,’” the man said. “But you start disrespecting me.”
