Twitter is a go-to for people who want to vent about their nightmare Uber experiences, and sometimes the company’s support representatives even reply. Lately, some users have been taking advantage of this fact, tweeting ridiculous complaints and getting a good laugh when they get a concerned response.
The tweets that are a part of this trend are mostly all variations of the same complaint, claiming the driver called them fat/a fatass/a whale/etc., pushed them out of the car and then ran over their dog/son/etc. They all conclude “this is him/her” and include a photo of a celebrity or friend they’re pranking.
For example, in this tweet, a user jokes that his Uber driver offered him cocaine and then proceeded to kick him out of the car:
A representative responded:
This similar jokey complaint saw a response too:
This tweet, where a rider claims her driver ran over her son, got the best reaction:
Some users have been attaching photos of celebrities like Tina Fey, Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding and Lana Del Rey, although these aren’t getting responses from Uber:
At least @Uber_Support was able to wise up when it came to famous faces.
