The transportation service came under fire this week when a London driver allegedly ejected a gay couple from his car for showing one another affection on New Years Day. "We were kissing and cuddled next to each other when a minute or two after picking us up he pulled over and told us to get out," Jordan Sloan stated about the experience with boyfriend Corey Watts. After ejecting the pair, the driver allegedly claimed, "I take gays but they don't normally do this."
