Video shows SFMTA employee yelling profanity at co-worker

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has placed an employee on non-work status after a video surfaced of the employee yelling profanity and a homophobic slur at a co-worker, the San Francisco Examiner has confirmed.

The video, published on YouTube on Tuesday, show a “car cleaner” yelling at another SFMTA employee at the Potrero Division Yard on Dec. 19.

SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose denounced the employee’s actions in the video.

“The video displays unacceptable and offensive behavior that does not represent the values of this agency,” Rose told the San Francisco Examiner. “The car cleaner has been placed on non-work status pending the outcome of a full investigation.”
