The son of a millionaire landlord in New York City is now under investigation by both the University of Michigan and his fraternity after his homophobic rant against an Uber driver was posted online, reported.

The footage shows Jake Croman berating the driver, identified as Artur Zawada, after Zawada cancels Croman’s request for a ride in Ann Arbor. It begins with Croman asking Zawada why he canceled the request “again,” before boasting that while “there’s 50 of you, there’s one of me who spends the most money here, you little f*ck.”

“F*ck you, Arthur, you little f*ggot f*ck,” Croman rants. “You wanna kick me off? Kick me off, you little piece of sh*t. You’re an Uber driver. Go f*cking drive, you little f*ck. Minimum wage f*ggot, go f*ck yourself.”

A Labour shadow cabinet member listed as being “hostile” to Jeremy Corbyn on a leaked party memo is being targeted “because she is Jewish”, MPs have claimed.

It comes amid claims the Labour leader has failed to tackle antisemitism within the party.

Luciana Berger,


the shadow minister for mental health, is one of just two members of Mr Corbyn’s top team listed as being unsupportive of the leader.

A senior Labour MP told the Telegraph: “I think she is on there because she is Jewish, it is a concern for a number of MPs who have been looking closely at where Jewish Labour MPs are on that list.”

A Labour peer and ally of Tony Blair has threatened to resign from the party unless Jeremy Corbyn makes it “absolutely clear” that anti-Semitism will not be tolerated among its members.

He also expressed concern over the recent resignation of the co-chair of Oxford University’s Labour club, Alex Chalmers, who expressed concerns that some fellow members had “some kind of problem with Jews” following allegations of anti-Semitic bullying within the club.
