Uber CEO caught on video arguing over fares with driver

Uber's CEO says he desires leadership assist just after a video has emerged of him arguing heatedly with a driver about fares.

In the latest embarrassment to beset the ride-hailing firm, CEO Travis Kalanick is noticed discussing Uber's business enterprise model with the driver.

In the dashcam video obtained by Bloomberg News , the driver argues that Kalanick is lowering fares and claims he lost $97,000 mainly because of him. "I am bankrupt since of you."

Kalanick lashes back. "You know what? Some persons do not like to take responsibility for their own s---. They blame every thing in their life on somebody else. Very good luck," he said, then slamming the door.

Soon after the video went public, Kalanick issued a statement to Uber workers. In it, he says he should "grow up" and apologizes to the driver, identified as Fawzi Kamel, as well as the driver neighborhood.

"This is the first time I've been prepared to admit that I need leadership help and I intend to get it," he said.

Bloomberg News reports that the video was from early February this year.

It really is the most up-to-date PR nightmare to hit Uber, which last week identified itself in a sexual harassment firestorm. That stemmed from a detailed essay published by a former female Uber engineer, who charged that her prospects at the enterprise evaporated soon after she complained about sexual advances from her boss. In the post about her year at Uber, Susan Fowler said the company's human sources department ignored her complaints due to the fact her boss was a high performer.

Kalanick referred to as for an independent investigation of those troubles, and the company hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to assist.

On Tuesday, a prime engineering executive, Amit Singhal, left Uber five weeks right after his hire was announced. According to a report in the tech blog Recode, Singhal failed to disclose that he'd left his preceding job at Google due to the fact of a sexual harassment allegation.
