Uber driver explains why he argued with CEO Travis Kalanick

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick's very own Uber driver has spoken out about that incriminating video, and things are not looking too good.

The ride-sharing company has been under fire the past few weeks for a myriad of incriminating reasons — ranging from sexual harassment allegations, to a beef with Google and controversial Trump-related remarks — but things got even heavier on Tuesday when a damning video of CEO Travis Kalanick being an asshole to his own Uber driver was released.

The dash-cam footage shows Kalanick and his black Uber driver, Fawzi Kamel, arguing over price hikes at the end of a trip on Feb. 5. Kamel was hitting the Uber CEO up about problems in the pricing structure, when Kalanick responded by yelling: "Some people don't like to take responsibility for their own shit. They blame everything in their life on somebody else. Good luck!"

Following the mature outburst, he slammed the door.

Now, the Kamel is speaking out about the company and why he gave Kalanick a scathing one-star rating.

On Wednesday, Kamel, 37, told NBC Newsthat he decided to release the footage because he's fed up with Uber's treatment of drivers. "Uber kept dropping prices every season to gain more ridership to satisfy their growth, and it didn't matter to Uber if the driver is not even making minimum wage," he told NBC News.

In the video, Kamel expressed issues with price changes being made and the pressure of new drivers coming into the business. "... The worst part is, they call us partners, [but] they make the rules, set the price and they even choose the cars you can use," he said.

According to Kamel, the first Uber black car drivers are the "real investors in Uber" and are not being treated with enough respect. "How come the angel investors in Uber turned their $20,000 into millions, but the original Uber Black car drivers got nothing?" he asked.

You can watch the footage of Kamel and Kalanick's interaction below, starting around 3:58:
