A half-naked woman whose theft of an Uber driver’s tips was caught on video is complaining of online harassment after footage of the brazen incident went viral.

Scantily clad 18 year old Gabrielle Canales – a horrible human being, was caught on surveillance video reaching into the Uber driver’s tip jar after she and two other passengers reached their destination in Brooklyn, New York.

After posting a now-deleted Instagram response in which Canales showed little remorse, the Crown Heights woman finally admitted she was “completely wrong” for stealing the money – $5.00 by her count – which she says she paid back.

“I understand I’m completely wrong and I’m not denying it,” Canales told BuzzFeed. “The lesson was learned that same day. That’s why the gentleman was paid back.”



After the video went viral, Canales told Buzzfeed she’s been subject to harassment and mocking.

I didn’t need this video to go viral to teach me a lesson. I learned the lesson that same day. Before the video went viral, the man was paid back,” Canales said. “I apologize on the matter once again.”

Canales then doubled down on her self-righteous half apology and played the woman card, saying “I’m wrong for taking $5, and according to the world, I need to die,” she said. “I understand I’m going to get hate from a lot of people and that’s something I accepted, but I don’t think it’s okay to disrespect me as female.”

Uber bans woman, ignores driver

Following the incident, Uber banned the woman from the platform, stating “What’s been shown has no place on our app and the rider’s access to the app has been removed.” The driver, meanwhile, told the Daily Mail that he was “too busy working to file a police report after the video was filmed.”

When he reached out to Uber, they sent him a canned response:

We understand your frustration with this experience. We’ve attempted to contact the rider by phone and email, but haven’t been able to resolve this issue. The rider responded to us and advised us that she didn’t steal your cash from the tip jar. If you believe the rider has your cash as captured from your dash cam and is refusing to return it, you may want to initiate a formal investigation via the police.

Uber drivers raping passengers, passengers robbing Uber drivers – some of whom were then shortchanged by the company … I bet the ridesharing behemoth can’t wait to replace those pesky human drivers with self-driving cars.
