Another Uber driver is going viral right now for kicking out a gay couple for simply being gay.

A lesbian couple made up of Kristin Michele and Jenn Mangan got into an Uber while on their way to a Zac Brown Band concert in Camden, New Jersey this past Friday night. While the two started out their day and date joyous and blissful, their mood soon diminished.

According to NJ.com, Michele leaned over to give Mangan a kiss on the check. The couple then says their driver told the women to get out of her car.

Michele recounts that an argument immediately started from there.

“I said ‘I don’t understand,’” She recounts. “She said ‘I can’t ride with that. You kissed her.’ She said ‘I won’t have that.’”

During the argument, Michele started recording the verbal fight. The video, seen below, shows the driver arguing with Michele and Mangan and threatening to call the police. Eventually, the couple exited the car and walked half a mile to get back home. They then caught a train to see the concert.

You can watch the moment below.

This woman picked me up as my uber driver. We took off. I gave my girlfriend a kiss on the cheek and she pulled the car over and said “you need to get out of my car.” I asked why. She said “I won’t have that in my car.” I asked what she was referring to. She said “you need to get out of my car because you are gay.” #uber #illegal #trumphatewithlove CynthiaToyota Highlander C29CPT

After the video went viral and the moment was covered on local news sources, it was later revealed that the driver has been banned by Uber. So at least Michele and Mangan’s trouble saw some justice.
