Actress Busy Philipps claimed that a guy tried to kill her and her husband in an Uber on Saturday.
According to E! News, the 37-year-old star of Vice Principals and alum of Cougar Town described what happened in a series of almost 50 Instagram Story videos she posted over the weekend.
She posted a photo of herself, captioned, "Seconds before I was almost murdered by a random dude in an Uber..."
Philipps stated in the videos that she and her husband Marc Silverstein called a single Uber, not a shared ride, after dining at a restaurant. A driver in an SUV arrived and the couple hopped in. Phillipps said she immediately felt uncomfortable.
"I say [to Marc], 'What's going on, are we about to get murdered?' Philipps said on one of the videos. "A man that we didn't know existed in the backseat pops up...and he was like, 'I promise that's not going to happen.' It was very creepy the way he chose to say it, even though he wasn't going to murder us, he made it seem like he might."
At that point, Phillipps stated that she began screaming, “I'm not going to be killed today! I will not f--king be killed today!”
According to the E! News report, Phillipps and her hubby then jumped out of the SUV.
An Uber source told E! News that the couple provided feedback about their experience, stating they had a second rider with them in a single ride they had ordered. That is a violation of the company's terms of service. The Uber source said the pair did not report any safety incident. Uber is looking into the incident according to the report.
"People think that I should've called the police maybe, but I feel like...we're in L.A., guys. It would have taken them easily an hour to get there," Philipps said in one of the videos. "Also, what are my charges? 'There was a creepy guy?' I don't think that's illegal."
The actress said she is done with Uber forever and that Saturday’s experience was the worst and scariest event in a car she has ever experienced.
