Footage circulated online appears to show an Uber passenger in Melbourne, Australia, ordering his driver to pull over and let him out of the vehicle after finding out the driver was Jewish.

“So you’re Jewish?” the passenger asked the driver from the backseat on Tuesday.

“All right. Just stop on the left, man. Just stop here,” he said in the video. “I don’t like Jews. I’m not going to ride with a Jew.”

The driver told the passenger to “enjoy himself” as he got out of the car.

The passenger can be heard in the footage responding with a torrent of abuse, including the words “Jewish scumbag.”

“See you later you scumbag. F***ing Jewish dog. Get out of here man,” he also said in the clip.

As the car drives away, the man says in the video that “I’d rather walk.”

Dvir Abramovich, chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission, spoke with the driver after the incident, according to a post on Facebook. The driver reported the incident to Uber, the Daily Mail reported.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the driver was wearing a kippah on his Uber app photo and his name is Naftoli.
