A black man has nicknamed an Uber driver as #BigotBob after he kicked him out of his car, and called the cops on him for sounding gay, reported LGBTQ Nation.
Chris Williams, a Washington D.C. resident, was on his way home from work when he requested the Uber ride in late June.
Williams said he was on the phone with his grandfather using affectionate language. “As soon as [the driver] heard the word, ‘darling’ he pulled over. I was like wait this isn’t my stop,” Williams said.
“[The driver] said ‘you actually need to get out of my car, because I’m not taking you anywhere.’ So I’m looking at this man like wait a minute. What’s wrong?” Williams said.
The Uber driver refused to talk to Williams directly, and would only talk to the police. The driver reported to Uber that Williams was being “overly flirtatious” and “used physical contact.”
“I just want to go home,” Williams said in the video.“What the f*ck is going on, and you want to sit here and be a bigot? I’m tired of this.”
The police did not file a report and the Uber driver went home. Williams had to wait 30 minutes for another Uber to arrive.
An Uber representative said in a statement: “We have a clear non-discrimination policy and take these types of reports very seriously. We have a dedicated team that investigates all reports of discrimination and will take appropriate action.”

‘Go back to Harlem!’: Florida woman has n-word laced meltdown after bumping black woman’s shopping cart
On Saturday, the Atlanta Black Star reported an incident in Florida, in which a white woman screamed racial slurs at a black woman at a Publix supermarket in Miami after their shopping carts jostled each other.
After the woman allegedly banged into Nicki Johnson's cart, she refused to apologize, saying, "I didn't hit you with my cart, and f**k you, you f**king n****r."
Johnson whipped out her cell phone camera, and began recording the incident, saying "You, why don't you call me a n****r again?"
"You thinking I'm sorry?" snapped the woman. "Let me tell you something, I don't have to call you anything. Get away from me, I will call security and there are surveillance videos. Get away from me!"
‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
