Deputy Consul General of Israel Threatened and Kicked Out of Uber in Chicago for Speaking Hebrew

Here’s some not so shocking news from the city of Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Barack Obama…

Itay Milner is the Deputy Head of Mission, Consulate General of Israel in Chicago, Illinois.

On Thursday Itay took a ride in an Uber in Chicago.
During the ride Itay said two words in Hebrew. That’s when the Uber driver “Yuva” started screaming at him and forced him out of the car… in Chicago.

Itay later wrote about his experience and posted a photo of the Uber driver and his vehicle.

This is Chicago.

According to CBS Chicago: A spokeswoman for Uber released a statement saying, “Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination. We are reaching out to the rider to extend our support for the experience he described here. As soon as we were made aware of this, we removed the driver’s access from the app as we look further into this.”
