A TikTok video showing an Uber driver calling a passenger a racial slur has gone viral.
Abby Nicole, who is Black, shared the clip on the video-sharing platform late Tuesday night, where it has since amassed more than 180,000 views.
The clip shows her in a verbal altercation with the driver over an apparent request to turn down the air conditioning in the car. It was not immediately clear where or when the incident took place.
"I will call the police," the driver tells the woman. When she asks why, he tells her it is "because I don't want you in my car."
"Because I asked you to turn the AC down?" she says.
"That's part of the reason," he says. "The other reason is you said come through the gate. All the gates are locked."
After she tells him there is a call button, he tells her: "We're not going to discuss any further."
"Weird," she says. "It's giving racist. You're a racist."
Seconds later, as the woman steps out of the vehicle, he calls her the N-word.
"You heard me," he says, when she asks him to repeat it.
"Cause I'm a what? Cause I'm a n*****?" she says. "Cause you're acting like one," he replied.
"Because you're kicking me out because I asked you to turn the AC down because you're my driver," she says. "I'm a n*****, right? Say it again."
"I'm not saying nothing... no. Have a good day," he says, as the video ends.
