Brittany Furlan Steals Vine, Adds Racism
29-year-old Vine star Brittany Furlan has recently come under fire for a video titled “Uber drivers be like…”, released days ago. In it, Furlan dons a stereotypical accent and garb to portray her Uber driving character. Since then, she’s been accused of ‘racism’ by a number of her fans.
Their video, also titled “Uber Drivers Be Like…”, shares the same premise, editing style, and remarkably similar jokes to Furlan’s video. The difference? Theirs was released 4 months ago…
This is not the first time Furlan has been accused of stealing Vines and jokes. Many have noted the similarities between one her Vines (“How this song should really go…”) and that of Kurtis Conner’s. Like “Uber Drivers Be Like…”, the two are nearly identical save for a few key differences. It appears to be the same case here, just less subtle.
