A video of a woman passenger launching insulting attacks on an Uber driver after their vehicle broke down in the middle of the journey has gone viral on the internet. The viral video, without any date and mention of location, has caught social media's attention.

The texts on the video indicate that the argument between the two began after the vehicle broke down in the middle of their journey. The woman lost her cool after the male driver asked her to pay for the distance covered by the taxi before the breakdown. While, it is unclear to understand the exact reason behind the argument, it is clearly visible how the woman continued to humiliate the driver as he asked for his fare.

“We believe respect is a two-way street, and there is no place for threatening, discriminatory and inappropriate behaviour on the Uber platform. Any proven discriminatory behaviour may lead to penalties, including removal of user's access from the Uber app, and we will be guided by our community guidelines in all such cases, including this one,” an Uber Spokesperson told Mint.
