Uber Driver Fights With CEOs Of Apple, Facebook And More

The incident between Uber founder and CEO Travis Kalanick and his Uber driver, Fawzi Kamel, has been widely reported over the past few days. Bloomberg broke the original here.

Here is the video - the exchange begins around 3:42: 

What hasn’t been reported are the other interactions Fawzi Kamel had with Bay Area CEOs in his Uber. Luckily someone leaked the transcripts exclusively to Break.com.

The first involved Apple CEO Tim Cook.

A transcript of their conversation is below:

Tim Cook: Good to see you man, thank you.

Fawzi Kamel: Good to see you too.

Tim Cook: So we have a new MacBook Pro model out.

FK: Yeah I saw the Consumer Reports article, what’s the deal with the battery life?

Tim Cook: We're not dropping the battery life on MacBook Pros.

FK: Yeah but for the first time ever you didn’t receive a recommended rating from Consumer Reports.

Tim Cook: We fixed it, they released an updated rating!

FK: But you have the business model in your hands, you could have the battery life as you want from the beginning.

Tim Cook: No, no, you're misunderstanding. We started high end. We didn't go low end because we wanted to, we went low end because we had to.

FK: Why? (Because of) Microsoft?

Tim Cook: Yeah.

FK: That's a piece of cake right there.

Tim Cook: No, it seems like a piece of cake because I've beaten them. But if I didn't do the things I did, we would have been deep (inaudible).

FK: But people aren't trusting you anymore. Do you think people will buy MacBooks anymore? We'll buy them through Craigslist, nobody wants to buy a new MacBook. I lost $97,000 because of you. I'm bankrupt because of you.

Tim Cook: Hold on a second, how did you lose $97,000 because of me?

FK: I bought 36 new 15-inch MacBook Pros with Touch Bar! You keep changing every day.

Tim Cook: Bulls***. Bulls***.

FK: We started with 18.5 hours of battery life. How much is the battery life now, 8 hours? And what about Airpods? I want to use my old headphones!

Tim Cook: You know what, some people don't like to take responsibility for their own s***. They blame everything in their life on somebody else. Good luck.

FK: Good luck to you too but I know you're not going to go far.

 

The next rider was Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. 

A transcript of their conversation is below:

Mark Zuckerberg: Good to see you man, thank you.

Fawzi Kamel: So what’s the deal with the algorithm? I ‘like’ pages because I want to see links to my favorite sites, I see no links.

Mark Zuckerberg: So we are reducing the number of links to outside sites on the system.

FK: Why are you fucking with us like that? It used to be, I follow someone, I see their posts. Now - it’s algorithm! I want to see who I want to see.

Mark Zuckerberg: We have to, we have competitors. Otherwise we'd go out of business.

FK: But you have the business model in your hands, you could have the posts as you want, but you choose to fuck with our heads to make money.

Mark Zuckerberg: No, no, you're misunderstanding. We started high end. We didn't go low end because we wanted to, we went low end because we had to.

FK: Why? (Because of) Snapchat?

Mark Zuckerberg: Yeah.

FK: That's a piece of cake right there.

Mark Zuckerberg: No, it seems like a piece of cake because I've beaten them. But if I didn't do the things I did, we would have been deep (inaudible).

FK: But people aren't trusting you anymore. Do you think people will trust Facebook anymore? We'll see stories through Twitter and Snapchat, nobody wants to deal with algorithm. I lost $97,000 because of you. I'm bankrupt because of you. You keep changing it every day.

Mark Zuckerberg: Hold on a second, how did you lose $97,000 because of me?

FK: I kept getting ads for FarmVille and kept doing in app purchases so I kept getting more ads for FarmVille! It never stops!

Mark Zuckerberg: Bulls***. Bulls***.

FK: And what about the Messenger app? Why can’t I check my messages through the regular Facebook app? I need two apps?!

Mark Zuckerberg: You know what, some people don't like to take responsibility for their own s***. They blame everything in their life on somebody else. Good luck.

FK: Good luck to you too but I know you're not going to go far.

 

The last passenger was Golden State Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob.

A transcript of their conversation is below:

Joe Lacob: Good to see you man, thank you.

Fawzi Kamel: What’s up with Kevin Durant, man?

Joe Lacob: He has a Grade 2 MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise. So we are putting him on injured reserve for the next 4 weeks and reevaluating.

FK: I saw the ESPN story. How can we win without Durant? Cleveland has picked up Kyle Korver, Derrick Williams, even our old Andrew Bogut!

Joe Lacob: We have competitors.

FK: But people aren't trusting you anymore. Do you think people will watch the Warriors anymore? We'll watch Spurs and Clippers, nobody wants to watch the Warriors. I lost $97,000 because of you. I'm bankrupt because of you.

Joe Lacob: Hold on a second, how did you lose $97,000 because of me?

FK: I bet $97,000 Kevin Durant wouldn’t have a Grade 2 MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise this season!

Joe Lacob: That’s very specific and unfortunate!

FK: I know and it’s all your fault!

Joe Lacob: Bulls***. Bulls***.

FK: We started with talent and future. What is left now?

Joe Lacob: You know what, some people don't like to take responsibility for their own s***. They blame everything in their life on somebody else. Good luck.

FK: Good luck to you too but I know you're not going to go far in the playoffs.

 

Cook, Zuckerberg, and Lacob have all denied the incidents occurred. We’ll leave the final judgement to you, dear readers.
