Ottawa bus driver goes berserk on autistic passenger
The driver of an Ottawa bus lost his temper, and now the video is going viral over the Internet.
"Shut the fuck up," he's heard saying on the video below. "Shut your ignorant fucking cakehole. Don't say another fucking word."
The rant continued. "Shut up I said," the driver repeated as the man appeared to be explaining himself. "If you don't shut your fucking face, I'm going to stick my fist in it."
The 20-year-old passenger, Matthew Taronno, is mildly autistic. As he exited the bus, he mumbled that he was sorry.
Taronno later told CBC News that he was reading a script from a play he had written, which triggered the driver's outburst. Taronno conceded that there was some offensive language in the dialogue.
There was reportedly only one other passenger on the bus when the driver started swearing. Transit officials are investigating.
