Racially profiled because I am not black. I know my rights as a Trump voter

“I came out of a gay club and your driver is racist against gay people,” Ortiz said during one of the calls. “I called the police to protect myself because I know my legal rights as an American citizen that voted for Trump.”

Ortiz also vowed to make Lettman’s night “a living hell,” and, on a video call with a friend, can be heard saying, “Yo, Boo, tell me why I’m in a Lyft and the nigga fucking pulled over.”

“The nigga’s recording me without my consent, because I asked for music,” he said.

(Fun fact: New York is a one-party consent state, which means that it’s not only legal to phone record someone anytime, you can also video record people without their consent unless they have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Given that this was Lettman’s car and a share ride, we’re going to say Ortiz didn’t have that. #TheMoreYouKnow)
Seems really upset his complexion is not black??
Claims the driver is aggressive but the dude is very calm @9:23 if you just want the Trump rant

1. Saw this on FB last night!

Mr Lettman, the driver, was suspended by Lyft until their investigation is completed...

2. Mr Ortiz lost his job

As for Ortiz, Instinct reports he lost his job at CityMD after the video of his self-entitled antics was posted. And—a lesson for next time—because Ortiz dropped his number during the video, he was besieged with a flurry of less-than-flattering voicemails. According to Instinct, Ortiz was forced to change his phone number

3. What an asshole

Someone should also make it clear to that asshole that the word is spelled "ASK". Not "AKS".
The s is before the k, not after.

4. The driver was calm to the max because he knew he had nothing to worry about.

He even told the a-hole about the sign on the door that passengers are recorded, yet the fool passenger kept up with the false accusations that he was being recorded without his consent.

There are a lot of idiots out there and you never know when you might have a run-in with one of them.

5. Well, how'd that work out for you Mr. Ortiz?

Gay Trump Supporter? Geez!

Mr. Lettman was channeling the Buddha. I could not have had that much patience!

I'll wait for the groveling apology from Mr Ortiz blaming his behavior on alcohol. Probably more substances than alcohol if you ask me.

He can save the apology.
