Uber bans rider after racist attack on Asian driver at LAX

Uber said it banned a rider Wednesday after NBC News inquired about a report from a Filipino driver saying he received racist insults from the rider, who is white, at Los Angeles International Airport.

ďAfter I unloaded the luggage, thatís when he started yelling at me,Ē Raph David, the Uber driver, told NBC News. ďAnd he said, ĎAsian piece of s---, you might not even have a paper here in America. Go back to your country.íĒ

According to David, the incident occurred Tuesday evening when the man, Kyle Harrington, ordered an Uber using his sonís account. When David picked up the man and his two sons, Harrington tried to get into the front passenger seat, which is currently prohibited per Uberís Covid-19 safety policy.

When David told Harrington he was not able to sit in the front seat, he said Harrington became irate, slammed the door and started yelling at David.
