    Jake Croman, son of New York Millionaire Stephen Croman, is under investigation by both the University of Michigan and Tau Kappa Epsilon, his fraternity, following the online posting of a video in which Croman verbally assaults Uber driver Artur Zawada.

    article:
    According to the New York Daily News, Croman alleged that the video shows his reaction to religious discrimination on the part of the driver, stating that Zawada had refused to drive him in the past because he is Jewish. Croman released an statement to this effect, claiming “I am not proud of my reaction to his discrimination and I regret my choice of words.”

    ...In a comment left on the video, Zawada claimed that he refused to drive Croman after having driven him three times in the past in which Croman and his friends repeatedly abused him.

    ...It turns out that the Uber driver was fired. According to the Michigan Review, Mr. Zawada was fired by Uber as claims surfaced that other passengers had heard him making anti-semitic remarks. He has strongly denied the claims.

    If you can't go greek, go ...

    OTOH, I wonder if Meechigan is devoting equal amounts of "investigative resources" to Muslim students harassing Jewish ones? For as good a school as it is, and a fond favorite from my days of living in AA, it is a bastion of political rectitude.

    I just wonder where these charges of anti-Semitism against the Uber driver arose so suddenly, mentioned in the Update. Were they stated previously by these accusers? If not, why not? This does raise the suspicion of convenient timing. And possibly outside manipulation? When you've got millions, and a history of unscrupulous behavior...

    Read the article more carefully; in the original article the guy said his temper tantrum was triggered by the driver's anti-Semitic comments. The update provided the additional information that the driver was subsequently fired because other customers made the same allegation.

    This is why videos can have such a huge effect on how we perceive things; it's so easy to edit out the crucial details and make a video that shocks. And people loved being shocked.

    True. The detail was that before the incident other customer emailed Uber about this driver's anti-semitic remark, but Uber didn't do anything about it.
    The kid acted like an asshole, but it seems that he was provoked by some anti-Semitic bigotry.

    Zawada said “It’s depressing and frustrating. I want them (the ones who accused him of anti-Semitic remarks)to take a lie detector test,” he said of the accusers, adding “It’s unfair because they have the resources.”

    Where's the video of this man, a Polish immigrant of 30 years, that he was anti-Semitic?

    “Half the Jewish people who founded Israel,” Zawada said, “were Polish citizens.”

    “I have Jewish friends,” Zawada said. “I have professors I know at the University of Michigan who are Jewish. I worked for my boss and he was Jewish.”

    An Ann Arbor Police spokesman told the News Croman filed his own police report before Zawada did, but it never mentioned anti-Semitism.

    An Uber rep said Zawada and Croman are both suspended (not fired) from the ride-share service while it investigates the incident. It's unclear if Croman filed a formal complaint with the company.

    I smell "mendacity". I think this Frat Brat made up the Jewish remarks to exonerate himself, because, well, Anti-Jew is worse than anti-gay, right?

    The Cromans sound like Rich entitled assholes, who like to intimidate. Him and his father, "Steven Croman, who lives in a swanky Lenox Hill pad, is one of the most notorious names in New York real estate. He’s been under investigation since 2014 for allegedly using illegal tactics to cast out residents from some of the rent-stabilized Manhattan properties owned by his company, 9300 Realty.Beleaguered tenants have also accused him of hiring a former cop, Anthony Falconite, to force them out through intimidation.

    I would also point out when Croman says "You're cancelling us again, why? what? they don't give a shit about you..."

    Croman (if as he has stated, he thought Zawada was ant-Jew) should have known EXACTLY why the Uber driver cancelled their ride.

    AGAIN. The Uber driver has rights too. And he has elected not to pick up a fare due to past problems.
    Note that Croman and his pack of friends DON'T have a video of Zawada saying anything derogatory of anybody!

    Who are "they?" The rich entitled POS Jake and his father, and people like them. Screen-Shot-2016-03-29-at-2.36.42-PM.png

    Exactly. That's what pisses me off about rich people: money IS power. They feel entitled to everything. My sister and her husband are well-to-do. She was complaining about Obama and regulations that would take 2 years to open a new factory. She EXPECTED red tape to be cut for them. I don't know why she thought Obama was restricting local FLORIDA building regulations!

    So they built their plant in North Carolina. They are condescending to people they view as being in their way. And if it's a poor person getting in their way they feel contempt.

    Some wealthy parents turn their kids into snobs. I remember a friend who had wealthy parents. When he was in a shop and was not permitted to jump the queue, he said, "Do you know who I am?". The shop owner said, "It doesn't matter who you are. You have to wait your turn.". He eventually got over being a snob, but some never get over being a snob.

    You tend to lose perspective when you see everything through a distorting lens of rabid Islamophobia.

    Who knows, does it matter? I'm Polish and it's primarily a Catholic country at 87.5%.

    "Zawada, in response, has offered his Uber rating is 4.8 after 2600 rides. He’s also said that this was the fourth run-in he’s had with Croman and his friends. According to Zawada, who was apparently born in Poland, he told Croman after the third incident that he was contacting Uber to have him banned from using the service. Last Sunday, though, Zawada says that Croman used his friend’s phone to request a pick-up. “(The) rider knew from Uber application who is the driver,” Zawada said today on Youtube. “He had option to cancel to avoid any issues but he/they proceeded to abuse, harrase, belittle and provoke like kindergarten thugs.”

    If you use Uber, you know who the driver is, what the car is and the license plate, and their rating. 4.8 is excellent.

    Although juvenile, it was still lying in wait. If any harm or violence occurred Croman would be in deep shit. Zawada was trying to avoid further discord.
    Croman was PISSED that a plebeian commoner could have HIM banned.
