An Uber driver was coughed on, pepper sprayed and assaulted by passengers who ripped off his mask after he asked them to wear a face covering. Subhakar Khadka, 32, says he was racially abused by the three women after picking them up in the Bayview area of San Francisco on Sunday. Footage filmed on Khadka’s car camera shows a woman coughing in his direction before leaning forward to grab his phone and then rip off his mask. Khadka says another of the women then pepper sprayed inside his car. San Francisco police are investigating the incident and are asking for help in identifying the riders. Uber says it has suspended the account of the woman who ordered the car.
A GoFundMe page has been set up and has already exceeded it’s fundraising goal of $20,000. Here is the link: GoFundMe
