This bisexual YouTuber and her trans girlfriend were allegedly subjected to anti-LGBT abuse by Uber driver

A bisexual YouTube and her transgender girlfriend have said that they were abused by an Uber driver who used anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.

Video creator NeonFiona took to Twitter to recount the alleged ordeal in which an Uber driver went on a “transphobic” rant.

Fiona was in the car with her trans girlfriend and mother friend.

“Hoooooly shit we just had the most openly transphobic uber driver ever i am sO UNCOMFORTABLE,” she wrote on Twitter.

The YouTuber explained that the driver was not seemingly aware that her girlfriend was trans, but reportedly launched into the tirade after a segment on a radio station.

“He didn’t even know we had A Trans™ in the car, it was just kindly prompted by the tragically racist and transphobic radio station he had on,” she said.

Speaking to GSN, she explained that they were going to get lunch in Seattle.

She said: “It started with just a lot of conversation (dude, chill, we’re all on our phones).

“Things got really bad when the radio station he had chosen stopped playing music… and began talking about trans people and race issues, with a LOT of damaging language such as ‘a man can live his life for fifty years as a man then suddenly say he’s a woman?! That’s crazy!’.”
