Remember that University of Michigan student and Tau Kappa Epsilon brother who was filmed unleashing a string of antigay slurs against an Uber driver? Well, he wants everyone to know that, despite damning evidence to the contrary, he’s the real victim in the situation. And he’s prepared to sue to prove it.

“You wanna kick me off?” Croman can been heard shouting at 50-year-old Artur Zawada in a video that emerged online last week. “Kick me off, you little piece of shit! You’re an Uber driver! Go fucking drive, you little faggot! Minimum wage faggot! Go fuck yourself!”

After the video went viral, Croman, who has since been nicknamed “The Uber Turd,” released an unapologetic statement through a “family representative” explaining his side of the story:

This video shows one side of an argument I had with an Uber driver two weeks ago after he refused to pick me up on the basis of my religion. What you don’t see in the video is that the driver had made a number of offensive anti-semitic remarks that provoked my response. I am not proud of my reaction to his discrimination and I regret my choice of words. Shortly after the verbal altercation, I filed a complaint with the Ann Arbor police department and they are now dealing with the issue.

Ah, yes. The old “He started it!” defense. With a few accusations of anti-Semitism thrown in for good measure.

There’s just one hiccup in Croman’s story.

In the report he filed with the Ann Arbor Police Department, one day before the video appeared online, catapulting him into internet infamy, Croman made no mention of any anti-semitic remarks. Instead, the report accuses Zawada of “disorderly conduct.”

Still on a quest for blood, Croman then contacted Uber about Zawada, successfully getting the driver suspended from the ride sharing company. He is now purportedly preparing to file a lawsuit against him for discrimination.

Oh, but it gets even slimier.

It has now been revealed that Croman is the son of one of New York City’s most notorious slumlords, Steven Croman, who is currently under investigation for allegedly using illegal tactics to evict residents from rent-controlled apartments, going so far as to hire a former cop to intimidate tenants into leaving.

In 2014, Steven Croman was named one of the city’s “10 worst landlords” by the Village Voice, and there’s even an online advocacy group called Croman Tenants’ Alliance specifically dedicated to warning potential tenants of his actions.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Jake Croman is an Associate at his dad’s company.

Apparently douchebaggery runs in the family.

As for Zawada, he denies accusations of anti-semitism and maintains Croman’s verbal attack was completely unprovoked, which the video seems to corroborate.

“I said no word to the guy,” he said in an interview. “Nothing, nothing, nothing. I didn’t say anything to the guy and he went cuckoo.”

“I’m stressed out,” he continued. “It’s getting to me.”
