Two US Women Kissed In An Uber. Driver Kicks Them Out Calls It'Illegal

"Drivers are the heart of the Uber experience, and Daniel's passion for our mission and deep product knowledge will ensure we continue to improve and innovate on their behalf", Uber Head of Product Manik Gupta said in a statement to TechCrunch.

Uber has been battling a series of scandals, including a dysfunctional corporate culture under former CEO Travis Kalanick that spanned allegations of sexual harassment and high-profile executive departures. "We don't want to be part of the problem".

Emma Pichl, 24, and Alex Iovine, 26 - were at the Pig Beach bar in Gowanus, Brooklyn, on Saturday evening when they hailed an Uber to take them to the East Village. Boutari refuses to offer an explanation outside of insisting that they were "disrespectful".

Also, one notes that Khosrowshahi is suggesting that the funds be collected as a surcharge paid by customers, not a fee paid by Uber or its drivers.

A video posted to social media by Iovine shows the moments after the NYC Uber driver, Ahmad El Boutari, booted the women. But he called what the driver did to the women "an unacceptable and repugnant act that will not be tolerated".

El Boutari told the New York Daily News that he was uncomfortable with the couple's behavior in his car on the whole, not just with the kiss.

But find me another entrepreneurial venture in which the disrupters ultimately decide to take up some kind of collection for the disrupted.

This is a story about rideshare services like Uber, legacy taxicab drivers, and a surprising suggestion. One key added feature was the ability for drivers to recognize where surge, boost and incentivized areas are located.

But both Iovine and Pichl say they kissed once, and were not touching inappropriately.

There was a time when a New York City taxi medallion was a very valuable thing.

The two women said several minutes after their peck, the driver pulled over onto the side of a Manhattan road, away from their destination, walked over to the rear passenger side door and opened it, telling them to get out.

During the altercation, when Pichl started recording the scene, 'he grabbed Emma's arm to try to get her to stop, ' Iovine said. This is an open society and Uber is a platform that is available to anybody regardless of your background, your orientation, and that is sacred to us.

Uber spokeswoman Susan Hendrick told CNN that the company has removed the driver's access to the app and that it is investigating the incident.
