DC Karen wurde von Uber gesperrt, nachdem sie einen schwarzen Fahrer in einem rassistischen Ausbruch beschimpft hatte

A Washington, D.C. woman has been described as a “Karen” after a video emerged Wednesday morning of her black Uber driver being racially abused.

The explosive, charged encounter was recorded by a bystander and has since gone viral — eventually leading to the woman being banned from the ride-sharing app later that day.

Neither the identity of the driver nor the passenger has been publicly disclosed. Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident in which the agent repeatedly called the driver “slave” and “don’t ****”.

Uber said in a statement on Wednesday that it had already been “in contact with the driver” and confirmed that “the driver’s account has been suspended from the app.”

A Twitter account covering community news in the D.C. area re-shared the clip of the scenes on Wednesday, garnering national attention and more than 2 million views in a matter of hours.

“I’m your fucking boss,” the woman can be heard saying at one point in the footage as she pushes the driver. “You little piece of shit, nothing.”

The footage, filmed from inside a building overlooking the standoff, begins with an SUV parked on the street below with the rear passenger door open.

A man and woman can be seen arguing on the sidewalk, right in front of the car. The woman’s tone during the argument is distinctly condescending and argumentative.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the controversy, though the barbs between the two suggest the outburst stemmed from a request to use a driver’s phone charger. The clip begins with the white woman complaining after apparently not walking.

“I’m your fucking boss,” the woman can be heard saying at one point in the footage as she pushes the driver. “You little piece of shit, no ****r”

Your phone is not connected! the woman screamed at first after the driver apparently refused her request – possibly because he was charging his own phone.

A video then shows the driver backing away from the woman as she approaches him.

“Get the fuck out of my face!” The man yells, trying to distance himself from the angry customer.

However, the woman continues to push forward, snarling inches from the man’s face.

At this point, the confrontation becomes increasingly contentious. The woman said defiantly: “I will hire you, I am your boss.”

“I’m a slut?” the woman answers. “You are still a slave.”
