After a woman complained that she and her girlfriend were kicked out of a car for being gay, an Uber driver has been banned from the app by the company, NBC Philadelphia reports.
Kristin Gauthier, who captured the incident on video, said she and her girlfriend were trying to get to a concert in Oaklyn, New Jersey, when the driver saw her give her partner a kiss on the cheek, which caused the driver to become enraged.
The driver then pulled over to the side of the road and asked the couple to get out.
“She said, ‘You’re together. You’re not allowed in my car. I’m not gonna drive you,'” Gauthier told NBC Philadelphia, adding that the driver told the women that her Christian beliefs didn’t condone same-sex relationships. That’s when Gauthier started recording.
“Are you kicking me out because I’m gay?” Gauthier says in the video.
“Yes, I am,” the driver replies.
At one point, the driver reaches back and tries to swat Gauthier’s phone away.
“I can reject any ride I want,” the driver said as the confrontation continued to escalate.
Uber disagrees. In a statement, Uber spokesman Grant Klinzman said that Uber “does not tolerate discrimination” and has banned the driver from its app.

Brian Williams compares Corey Lewandowski’s opening statement to the North Korean news lady
MSNBC host Brian Williams on Tuesday noted the similarities between former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and North Korean news anchor Ri Chun Hee.
"Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign manager who is now considering a Senate run in New Hampshire, testified before the House Judiciary Committee today," Williams reported. "It is likely his North Korean anchorwoman-quality opening remarks were meant were one viewer (Donald Trump)."
Ri, who has earned the nickname "Pink Lady," is known for her enthusiastic reading of government-approved news.

‘Train-wreck of a witness’: Analysts nail ‘obstructive’ Corey Lewandowski for proving the Democrats’ case
Political commentator Catherine Rampell disagreed with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that the Democrats faltered during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. Former state and federal prosecutor Elie Honig called Lewandowski a "train-wreck of a witness."
She explained that Democrats had an extremely low bar: they had to prove Trump obstructed justice and that Corey Lewandowski gave one of the examples of such obstructions. In that sense, Rampell said they accomplished their goals.
"I don’t think this was a great day for Corey Lewandowski," she began. "This is a guy who went on TV and announced to the world -- apparently at the same time he is also trying to fundraise for Senate -- that he lies most of the time. Except when he's under oath."
WATCH: Ana Navarro keeps shouting down Trump booster — even as CNN host cuts to commercial
President Donald Trump cheered on his top Hispanic advisor Steve Cortes, who appeared before a New Mexico audience. Trump asked Cortes which he loved more, Hispanics or America, which prompted CNN's Ana Navarro to blast the president for racism. Meanwhile, Trump's latest CNN shill cried "political correctness."
"Look, I suspect he didn't want to offend Steve Cortes and I suspect Steve Cortes was not offended," Navarro said. "But really what a stupid thing to say. Right? To somehow ask the question about whether you love the country more than you love Hispanics -- they are one and the same."
