In a video posted on YouTube by KPIX CBS SF Bay Area, the driver, Subhakar Khadka, said he didn’t curse at the women or say anything bad towards them.
The driver said after the ladies finally got out of his car one of them allegedly sprayed pepper spray into the car and backseat.
Khadka told the TV outlet that he believed he was targeted because of his race.
Uber said to the outlet that the passenger’s actions were “appalling” and warranted a ban from using their services.
TMZ said the woman, who goes by the name “keepinupwforeign” on social media, shared her side of the story and said the driver’s “plan was to go viral from the beginning instead of just taking” them to their “destination like wtf.”
“Idk [I don’t know] who going to get out on the freeway or at the gas station in the hood at that with all the stuff I had!” she added, noting the Uber driver was upset because she didn’t have a mask on before getting into his car, but did once inside.
“He could have said not [to] get in from the beginning period or at least waiting at the gas station for our next Uber but no,” she said.
