A passenger had a racist meltdown after being asked to wear a COVID-19 safety mask by the driver on May 28 in Las Vegas, reports TMZ.
The passenger told the driver he doesn’t believe in the coronavirus because of “government,” even though the driver said his family members who are infected with COVID-19.
The driver said he is going to end the ride early, and the passenger threatened to “crush your skull right now.”
Lyft issued a statement about the video:
The behavior shown by the rider in this video is despicable and has no place on the Lyft platform. Lyft is committed to maintaining an inclusive and welcoming community, and discrimination is not tolerated.
