Chicago cabbie fired after ejecting gay couple for kiss

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- A Chicago taxicab company says it fired a driver after two men complained they were ejected from a cab because they kissed.

Steven White of West Hollywood, Calif. and Matthew McCrea of Chicago say they kissed during a ride in May from O'Hare International Airport to McCrea's home. They claim the driver for Sun Taxi turned the interior lights on and off, telling his passengers, "This is public transportation." The driver left an expressway and drove to a parking lot and ordered them out.

The pair on Monday filed a discrimination complaint against Sun Taxi with the Illinois Department of Human Rights.

Sun Taxi general manager Jong Lee says the cab driver was released "right after the incident." Lee says he can't comment on the complaint until he sees it.
