The couple, Alex Lovine (26) and her girlfriend Emma Pichl (24) were riding with the vehicle service in Manhattan when the driver suddenly pulled over and told them to get out of the auto.

A video one of the women took of the incident shows the driver claiming that the kiss was "illegal" and telling them to get out of his vehicle. He said that "I don't give a s-t about them".

Alex Iovine, 26, and Emma Pichl, 24, live together in Manhattan and have been dating for almost two years.

She said they had only "peck kissed" and were "not even touching" but that Mr El Boutari had been "very angry". "My girlfriend started laughing", Iovine told the tabloid.

Iovine was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying, "She thought he was joking".

"He started yelling at us that we were disrespectful and inappropriate and that he wants us out of his auto", said Pichl.

But then the driver pulled over and told them to "get out", according to Iovine.

One of the women responds: "Kissing is not illegal". "We were just so overcome with emotions".

A lesbian couple in Manhattan says that they were kicked out of an Uber because they kissed and they have video.

Mr El Boutari told the New York Daily News that the women played loud music on their phones and one put her feet on the seat, something Ms Iovine denied.

Uber is also investigating the case and said it had suspended the driver's access to its app, The Associated Press reported. Additionally, he added that "It's my own auto".

The couple said they were deeply shaken by the incident, which occurred during Pride Month. Why are we getting kicked out of the Uber?' and he said. Iovine and her girlfriend Emma Pichl are still upset after being thrown from that Uber vehicle. "That's no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what".

"It's disrespectful", the driver replied. Always try to be on time for your ride because nobody likes to wait. "You can't do this in the vehicle". Please respect those differences.

The two women tell CNN that, several minutes after their peck, the driver pulled over onto the side of a Manhattan road, away from their destination, walked over to the rear passenger side door and opened it, telling them to get out. The couple was charged the full $22 for the ride.

"It's 2018 in New York City and this isn't the way we live any more".

"Uber does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have reached out to the rider regarding her experience", an Uber spokesperson told Newsweek in a statement.
