A self-proclaimed “Social Justice Warrior,” Annaliese Nielsen is now likely to be better known for a recent verbal tirade that she launched on her Lyft driver for (of all things), having a hula girl on his dashboard.
In the video, Nielsen is clearly unhappy when she sees the hula girl and tells the driver:
You thought that was adorable? You didn’t think about the pillaging of the like, continent of Hawaii?
Besides the fact that Hawaii is not a continent (at least that’s what I was taught in school), Nielsen claims that the driver experiences “white privilege” though it is later revealed that he is Asian. In addition, she threatens to give him a 1-star rating, and intends to share the video on Gawker so that she can ruin his life by turning him into a “meme.” The bad news for Nielsen is that Gawker was recently shut down as a result of a lawsuit brought against it by Hulk Hogan. To top it all off, she repeatedly calls the driver a “selfish dumbass idiot.”
Before you think that this was a random person who was acting out, it is interesting to note that Nielsen was recently interviewed by ABC News as she had just launched Girls Night In, described as a “secretive online community made up of elite all-female movers and shakers.”
Is Nielsen’s behavior better or worse than the infamous Uber passenger in Miami?
