In a shocking video posted on Facebook, the two women - Emma Pichl, 24, and her girlfriend Alex Iovine, 26 - could be seen being told by driver Ahmad El Boutari that their kiss was "illegal". Alex Iovine says their driver reacted irrationally to their backseat display of affection, telling NBC NY, "We peck kissed, like I reached across and pecked kissed her". "I thought he was kidding and then Alex said, 'I don't think he is'".
She said they were in lower Manhattan when the driver pulled over, opened a rear door and ordered them to "get out of my auto".
Alex Iovine and her girlfriend, Emma Pichl, are accusing an Uber driver in New York City of discriminating against them after he allegedly kicked them out of the vehicle for kissing in the backseat.
Alex added: "My girlfriend started laughing".
While the women initially thought the man was joking, they soon realised that he meant what he was saying. 'We leaned in for a peck, and that's what it was, a legit peck'. Iovine said she began filming the confrontation on her phone.
A spokesman for New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission says el Boutari has been licensed since 2014, and that his license has been suspended after this incident, pending the outcome of the TLC's investigation. Elbotari replies, "I don't give a shit".

Speaking to the New York Post, Pichl recounted what happened, saying: "We got over the Manhattan Bridge into the city". "We were going back and forth trying to understand".
An Uber driver who kicked two kissing women out of his auto and had his NY livery license suspended says the women also played loud music on their phones.
Elbotari also spoke to the News, claiming that the couple was simply acting obnoxious, with one of them forcing the other to smell her armpit, playing music loudly on their phones, putting feet on the seat.
"It's my own vehicle". But Iovine and Pichl said they were doing no such thing. It's OK to chat with other people in the auto. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. As a reminder, Uber has a no sex rule. "You can't do that in the vehicle". Please respect those differences.
A spokesman said the commission was investigating the incident. Uber refunded Iovine the $22 fare and reportedly apologized to her.
Uber spokeswoman Susan Hendrick told CNN that the company has removed the driver's access to the app and that it is investigating the incident.
