Aner Manuel posts video of a Chicago Uber driver receiving oral sex from a front seat female passenger as the ride sharing service failed to deal with his complaint.
Aner Manuel a Chicago passenger riding a recent Uber ride share has told of a harrowing experience of his driver receiving oral sex from a female passenger sitting in the front seat. After complaining, the man was gifted $10 in credit for his inconvenience.
A report via gizmodo told of Manuel, who was sitting in the back seat being stuck in an Uber for two miles while an intoxicated prostitute groped and performed oral sex on the driver.
The incredulous customer posted footage of the ‘most dangerous and inappropriate ride ever’ on social media after the incident in Chicago around 3am on July 17.
In the video (see below), a woman is observed kissing the driver before lowering her head into his lap, while mood music plays over the stereo.
Look out the window, past the tall city buildings, scream to myself, reach for my seat belt and concentrate on the mood music ….
After the ride-hailing service allegedly offered him a $10 credit, Manuel posted the video online in a bid to force Uber to ‘appropriately respond’ to the complaint.
Having reported the incident almost immediately after alighting from the vehicle, Uber promised the man to investigate the incident. But after four days with no response, that’s when Manuel decided to take matters in his own hands.
Shall we share with the world my terror ride from hell?
The video, posted on Snapchat, shows the Uber driver looking at a phone’s map while a woman in the front seat begins to kiss him.
As the man drives, he continues to kiss the woman but tells her to stop when she aggressively grabs hold of his shirt collar.
The video cuts to the woman seemingly performing oral sex on the driver as he looks at directions and drives the car.
Manuel can then be heard telling the driver to pull over so he can exit the car.
In a Facebook post, Manuel clarified that his ride wasn’t an UberPool and said he thought maybe the front seat passenger was a family member. Do you suppose?
Posted Manuel: ‘As I approached my Uber, I noticed there was a passenger in the front seat. I double checked to make sure I didn’t select UberPool, and then approached the car.
‘I assumed it may have been a family member of some sort. As we pulled off the female in the front (who was clearly on drugs) attempted to open the door and could not even sit straight as the vehicle was in motion.’
Manuel continued: ‘She then began to grope him and grab him. They began to kiss and she began loosening his belt.
‘As we got further and further from my pickup location I had no idea where I was, so I had to stay in the car. She then proceeded to perform oral sex.
‘This was my last straw. I asked the driver to drop me off. Since I’ve contacted Uber and they refunded me for trip and gave me a “$10 credit”.
‘They’ve seen this video and are still “investigating”. They have been extremely bad at answering any messages I’ve sent, and I demand something gets done. This is not okay!’
Speaking to Esquire, Manuel, a retail worker from Boston, said he got into the car although someone else was in it because it was late and he was in an unfamiliar city.
He said: ‘I figured it was a family member or something. I think he assumed at that time of night I was too intoxicated to notice what was going on.’
The retail worker added that the woman, who he said was ‘clearly on drugs’ tried to open the moving car’s doors a few times before becoming sexual with the driver.
Told an Uber spokesperson via the dailymail: ‘The behavior of this former driver is appalling and is not tolerated on the Uber app.
‘As soon as this situation was reported to us, we immediately removed this driver’s access.’
The release of the video has led to wide criticism of Uber on social media, with users demanded the ride sharing service to do something and for action to be taken against the driver in question. Along with questions as to Uber’s vetting process when it comes to actually hiring drivers, despite Uber’s claims otherwise.
Notes Esquire: ‘In Boston this year over 8,000 potential driving applicants were turned away after failing extensive background checks. After a protracted battle in which Chicago lawmakers said they wanted to impose a similar standard for ride share drivers there, the city has said it will not require fingerprints as part of a background check.’
The Chicago incident is a long list of a string of questionable incidents which have compromised the reputation of the Uber ride sharing service, including the June resignation of board member David Bonderman regarding the alleged mishandling by executives of a rape victim’s medical records, along with the departure of embattled chief executive Travis Kalanick.
The identity of the driver and the woman in the front seat have not been disclosed. Yet.
