Watch: Lyft Passenger Goes on a Racist Rant After Being Told to Wear a Mask [Video]

Who knew that being required to wear a mask to prevent the collapse of American civilization by way of plague would be the breaking point for so many racists?

One Lyft passenger couldn’t help but go on a racist rant when told to wear a mask by his driver.

via TMZ:

The racist rider got in the Lyft on May 28 in Vegas, and things quickly turned racial and hostile after the driver asked him to wear a mask. … for obvious reasons.

The passenger starts griping because he doesn’t have a face covering, and tells the driver he doesn’t believe in the coronavirus, despite the driver explaining he has family members who are infected.

After some bickering over the mask, the virus and the driver’s route, the passenger starts making fun of the driver’s accent and starts unleashing racial slurs.

The man seems to think he has a binding contract with the Lyft driver to take him home, but the driver takes a stand and ends the ride early, asking the man to get out … and things keep going downhill.

The passenger calls the driver a “candy a** f****” and threatens to “crush your skull right now.” And, he doesn’t stop there.

The driver finally threatens to call the cops, and that’s enough to get the man outta the back of his ride, but not before threatening to take his beef to Lyft.

We reached out to Lyft who tells us the rider has been banned and they’re working with the driver to make sure he’s alright. A rep tells us, “The behavior shown by the rider in this video is despicable and has no place on the Lyft platform. Lyft is committed to maintaining an inclusive and welcoming community, and discrimination is not tolerated.”

We’re sure this man will be identified by the end of the day.
