An South Carolina woman and her daughter have filed a lawsuit against Uber following a ride during which their driver hurled racial slurs toward them both. Along with driving erratically, and refusing to let them out of the car.
Jovene Milligan, 52, works as an administrative assistant at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, and her daughter were going to Charleston for Mother’s Day weekend when their car broke down in Aiken. Then once they were told that due to COVID-19 protocol, they weren’t allowed to ride in the truck with their AAA driver, Milligan ordered the pair an Uber to drive them to Columbia to meet their car.
In Milligan’s lawsuit, the driver, identified as “Daniel,” asked where she and her daughter were from. Then when they referred to themselves as “African Queens” the attack started. He called them both the N-word, which was captured on video. Then started swerving and speeding on the highway.
Once they got to the car dealership, the lawsuit alleges that “Daniel” ended their trip by throwing out the passengers’ bags and shouting, “You (N-words) aren’t welcome in Aiken!”
