Uber driver suspended after ‘kicking out a lesbian couple for kissing’

A NEW York Uber driver kicked a lesbian couple out of his auto for kissing in the back seat - because he found the act "disrespectful", according to video showing the aftermath of the incident.

Alex Iovine (26) and Emma Pichl (24) left a friend's birthday celebration at a bar in Brooklyn at about 5pm and hailed an Uber to take them to another party in Manhattan.

The driver's taxi license, required to drive for Uber in New York City, has been suspended as the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission investigates what happened.

On Saturday, the Manhattan couple filed a complaint with Uber, which contacted the pair on Monday, apologised and said the company would fully refund their ride.

A similar incident occurred in Houston last December, when a gay couple claimed an Uber driver dropped them off at the side of a freeway after they kissed in his vehicle.

Video footage shows the moment the man informs the pair that kissing in the back of the vehicle is illegal. CNN reached out to the couple about el Boutari's claims. Why are we getting kicked out of the Uber?' and he said. "We are investigating and will take appropriate action".

In addition to filing the complaint with the city Human Right's Commission, the couple reported the incident to Uber, as did Elbotari.

In a statement to ABC News, an Uber spokeswoman said, "Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have been in touch with the rider regarding her experience". "I was very surprised".
