He also said “I try to capture the natural interactions between myself and the passengers — what a Lyft and Uber ride actually is,” he said in a recent interview with the Post-Dispatch.

Later on his twitter channel he tweeted, “Just a heads up for everyone, as you all know….for me transparency is always key. I’ve had a few offline conversations with some folks, and they suggested getting rid of the stored vods as step #1 of trying to calm everyone down. I’ve done that……for now.” Since that incident,  the drive has deactivated all his accounts & also all of his videos has been deleted from his channel.
