A ComfortDelGro taxi driver has recently been sacked by the company after filming and shaming a female passenger who allegedly failed to pay her taxi fare.
In the video, which was uploaded to social media, a young woman, who appears to be drunk, is struggling to pay her taxi fare.
The driver, who is filming, mentions that he picked her up from Raffles Place and claims that he will make her famous.
He repeatedly asks her: “Do you want to pay the taxi fare?”
The girl replies that she will pay but that she needs to find her bag. However, her bag is nowhere to be found.
The driver claims her bag is not with her and the woman is heard asking to check his vehicle’s boot.
The driver tells her that she is wasting everyone’s time and then says, “Look at her. Young, beautiful, but a brain full of water.”
The driver later ends the video after saying that the police are on their way.
The video has garnered many mixed reactions from netizens with some siding with the taxi driver as he had not been paid and was rightfully upset.
However, some feel that it was unnecessary to film and upload such a humiliating video after having already called the police.
The taxi driver has since been fired from the company.
What do you think? Was the taxi driver right to film the woman? Let us know in the comments!
