Arizona CEO Fired After Calling Rideshare Driver Racial Slur
The CEO and founder of an Arizona organic fertilizer company says he was fired after he was caught on camera using a racial slur against an African American driver of a ride-hailing service.
Founder Hans Berglund was caught on video Friday cursing at 25-year-old Uber driver Randy Clarke.
The driver asked the man to sit in the back seat and offered to refund him if he didn't want to sit there.
A video shows Berglund started to curse at Clarke.
Berglund says he was fired after a company investigation and the general manager was named interim CEO.
