Pop star Nikki Williams accuses Uber driver of sexual harassment
No one is safe from the taxi app’s predatory employees.
We’ve reached out to Williams for further comment and will update with details as we receive them, but her experience reconfirms the uselessness of Uber’s employee background checks.
Meanwhile, it sounds as if drivers working for Uber and Lyft have more than their fair share of consensual sex on the job.
Thinking of becoming a full-time pedestrian? Can’t say we blame you.
Update Dec. 20, 2:52pm ET: Uber has issued a statement: “Uber has zero tolerance for this behavior and we apologize to Ms. Williams for the awful experience. We immediately deactivated the driver and have begun an investigation.”
