FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A CEO of a well-known company in Arizona has lost his job for the choice words he used while in an Uber.
The ride-share company driver said when he asked the passenger to sit in the back seat instead of the front, the man started using racial slurs.
Arizona State student, Randy Clark: Front seat use is reserved for parties of three or more.
CEO: Is it because I'm white? And you're a f***** N****? You are a ***** idiot."
Clark says he started implementing a policy to not allow anyone in his front seat after he was sexually assaulted.
That rule was never a problem until this man tried to hop in the front.
Clark: Mind sitting in the back?
CEO: No, I don't like to sit there.
Clark: I don't like when people sit in the front.
CEO: I'm here, sitting in the back.
CLARK: Sir, please leave my vehicle.
The driver quickly filed a complaint with Uber, and then did some digging on his own.
He learned the customer was the CEO of an organic fertilizer company in Tempe.
Uber has issued a statement saying they have suspended the CEO's account while they investigate.
The passenger has also reached out to Clark directly to apologize for his use of racial slurs.
