The model took a video of the incident and shared it on her Instagram, writing:

"Hey @uber I don't pay more to use your 'black car' service to be told that there's no way I could possibly be healthy because I'm fat & then questioning it. No one should have to tolerate this at any level of the services you offer. I'm fat. I also have a fat wallet & will no longer be using your services."

She added:

"saying my driver is fat was obviously being used as a descriptor & not to insult him. Also I did not show his face or use his name when filming, it was to be able to show what I deal with daily & why this behavior is unacceptable from anyone."

In the viral video, the 40-year-old businessman is seen having a heated back-and-forth with an employee, named Fawzi Kamal, after he was called out for lowering the rates for Uber Black drivers.

Clearly, the computer programmer really is ready to "grow up" as he's trying to arrange a meeting with Kamal to have a (hopefully civilized) conversation about "anything and everything" he wants, according to TMZ.

Kalanick isn't necessarily promising policy changes, but at least he's willing to hear this guy out.

But, is it a little too late?? Let us know what you think in the comments (below)!

Uber Orders 'Urgent' Investigation After Former Employee Slams Company With Allegations Of Ignoring Sexual Harassment & Sexism Complaints!

Uber

Susan Fowler worked as an Engineer at Uber from November 2015 to December 2016 — a year she claims was "strange, fascinating, and slightly horrifying" after the company refused to do anything when she went to HR with several complaints about sexual harassment and sexism in the workplace.

According to Fowler's blog posted on Sunday, her first manager at the company sexually harassed her via online chats — but nothing was ever done, despite her handing over screenshots:

"My new manager sent me a string of messages over company chat. He was in an open relationship, he said, and his girlfriend was having an easy time finding new partners but he wasn't. He was trying to stay out of trouble at work, he said, but he couldn't help getting in trouble, because he was looking for women to have sex with. It was clear that he was trying to get me to have sex with him, and it was so clearly out of line that I immediately took screenshots of these chat messages and reported him to HR."

She went on:
