Nick Young Suggests Uber Driver May Have Rejected Him Because He’s Black


Nick Young recently complained that an Uber driver pulled a fast one on him.

A certain basketball star has a bone to pick with Uber. Just yesterday (July 13), Nick Young took to Twitter to issue a complaint against the popular rideshare service. Uber may be the leading name in taxi-style rides, but they’re far too familiar with cases where customers have stated they’ve been victims of certain drivers’ racial biases.

According to Nick, the color of his skin may have been the reason a woman didn’t want to give him a ride in her car, even though she pulled up right in front of him. “Hey @Uber yesterday a Non-Blk lady cancel on me in my face she pull up I ask her are you here for nick she said yes I turn around to pick up my bag and she drove off & I got charged with a cancellation fee when she’s the one who cancel,” Swaggy P tweeted.

Just as Nick Young shared his brief story publicly, Uber responded on the social media platform, as well. “We’re sorry to hear about this experience. Please send us a DM with the phone number associated with your Uber account, so we can assist you further.” Uber has been fraught with racially-driven controversies, including facing accusations that they inflate their prices in communities with larger populations of Black and Brown people.
