*In the latest viral video of a mask request devolving into a racist rant, a white couple gets upset and starts slinging the n-word at their Lyft driver after he asked that the man put his mask “back on.”
Lyft has permanently banned the man following the incident that occurred Tuesday (Nov. 17) in Issaquah, Washington. according to Newsweek.com. The driver. David Kangogo, said he had picked up a couple at about 9.30 p.m. when, mid-ride, he noticed the man had taken off his mask. Lyft requires both drivers and riders to wear face coverings in the COVID-19 pandemic.
“So I said, ‘Sir, could you kindly put your mask on,'” Kangogo, 30, told Newsweek.
“He ignored me the first time, I repeated [it] and told him he’s putting me at risk and all the other passengers I pick up after him.”
Kangogo said that’s when the man, identified only as Joe, called him the n-word.
“He said, ‘Oh, shut up n*****, you don’t know s***,” Kangogo said. “So I just pulled over and got out of the car and told them I have canceled the ride, they can go ahead and get another driver.”
The video begins with the man exiting the car and telling Kangogo, “You’re a sand n****r. That’s what you are. You’re a f**king sand n****r.”
