A bus driver still has her job today after she called a passenger who complained about the vehicle’s temperature “short, fat, and white” as she was walking away. While the driver wasn’t fired, she was allegedly disciplined and given a new route, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The incident was caught on a surveillance video camera positioned behind the female bus driver’s seat at a stop in Waukesha, Wis., a suburb of Milwaukee.The passenger reportedly asked the driver twice to turn off the bus air conditioning on Aug. 23, and the driver allegedly refused. As the passenger exits the bus, video captures the driver saying, “‘You’re short, fat and white. Don’t talk to me like that.”
Melinda Slick of Waukesha said she’s afraid to ride the bus for fear that the female driver who rebuked her will be behind the wheel.
“I instantly started crying,” Slick said. “I have battled with my weight my whole entire life and I have been bullied for it.”...
The Journal-Sentinel says that while the driver’s race isn’t disclosed, in a video now posted to YouTube “she appears to be African-American.”
