The Uber driver who allegedly tossed a lesbian couple from his car for kissing in the backseat telling them it is illegal has been recommended for reinstatement by an administrative law judge pending a final decision on his license.
The case garnered national attention after video showing the aftermath of the June 9 incident went viral, depicting driver Ahmad El Boutari demanding that girlfriends Emma Pichl and Alex Iovine exit his car in lower Manhattan for being disrespectful.
The couple claimed they were booted simply for an innocent smooch in the backseat, and called it discriminatory because of their sexual orientation. That complaint got El Boutaris taxi license suspended.

[The Taxi and Limousine Commission] has provided no evidence that this refusal of continued service was based on the sexual orientation of these passengers, she wrote in a July 9 decision. [El Boutari] credibly testified that he asked the complainants to get out of his car because their conduct violated Ubers policy prohibiting sexual contact between passengers.
The hearing judge said she found El Boutaris testimony credible that he asked the couple to stop engaging in heavy petting rather than a mere peck on the lips in part because it was confirmed on video.

Muslim trumps LGBT.
cabcam caught the ‘heavy petting’, which violated Uber rules of no PDA among passengers, so sorry girls, no lottery for you.
I guarantee you that if his name were Calvin "Bubba" Jones he would be behind bars charged with a hate crime.
I guarantee you. Absolutely no doubt about it.
Some are more equal than others.
duhhhh.....if a driver is uncomfortable with the activities of passengers, he’ll be less focused on driving. Thus, there’s a greater potential of an accident. I’d think the gay couple would WANT to leave.
On the off chance they were hot there would most likely be the same problem. Hehehe. d;^)
He wouldn’t have to bake them a cake either.
That’s how it works. Muzzies get to kick lezbos out. Get used to it, LGBT crowd!
“Muslim trumps LGBT.” ,....and pretty much anything else.
UBER needs them. They don’t pay enough.
Uber doesn’t pay well? I’ve heard that Uber has a ton of part time drivers, who drive odd hours when they can work around school or other jobs. But had no clue how much they get paid.
I’m betting the girls were being provocative on purpose. Some gays (not all, but some) actively create these situations to reassure themselves that they are victims.
Because in the game of "diversity" poker, Muslim beats everything else, including homo.
