Outrageous moment Ola driver kicks a gay couple out of his cab for ‘breaking his rule’ after one of them had his hand on the other’s leg
- Same-sex couple filmed Ola driver kicking them out in Perth on Thursday
- Anthony Adams had been resting his hand on his partner’s leg in the backseat
- He filmed the driver telling him to stop before saying he would drop them off
- Mr Adams and his partner were dropped off at a petrol station and driver left
An Ola driver has been filmed kicking a same-sex couple out of his car after one of the passengers placed his hand on his partner’s leg, they claim.
Anthony Adams, who performs as a drag queen, and his partner had ordered the ride share at Perth, in Western Australia, on Thursday.
The couple were on the back seat of the car when Mr Adams rested his hand on his partner’s leg.
He pulled out his phone and filmed the driver telling the couple to stop because ‘this is my rule’.
Mr Adams asks the driver what he means before he is told: ‘I’ll drop you off here … I can’t take you.’

The driver pulls into a nearby petrol station and continues to deflect the questions from Mr Adams.
‘Can you tell me what the problem is?’ Mr Adams asked.
‘You can’t, because you’re afraid of what’s going to happen to you. Because I have my hand on my partner’s leg. He told us to stop doing this behaviour.’
The couple empty the car boot of their suitcases before the driver turns out of the petrol station.
Mr Adams uploaded footage of the incident to Facebook, where he was met with overwhelming support.
‘This is what our community has to deal with daily,’ one person said.
‘Just because some of us can get married doesn’t mean the discrimination ends.’
Ola has since launched an investigation into the incident and condemned the footage.
‘We do not in any way condone this behaviour from our drivers,’ a spokesperson told The West.
‘This does not fall in line with our practices and guidelines and further action will be taken against the driver for his misconduct as per the Ola policy.
‘Assuring you a better experience ahead.’
