In a follow-up video, Kessler explained that the numerous lawsuits fired at him following UtR decimated his finances, to the point where he had no choice but to retreat back to his family, despite deeming them "cucked" by the History Channel and the liberal media establishment. That's right, in a media environment wherein any right-wing asshole can make it rich by tapping into thinly veiled racism and sounding off more dog whistles than a racetrack, this asshole failed.
An Uber Driver Turns His Passengers Into Streaming Fodder, Finds Out That's Kind Of A Dick Move
In this economy, it's necessary to not only have a side gig, but also a side gig to your side gig. But as (now-former) Uber driver Jason Gargac found out, you have to be smart about it, or else you may wind up on the receiving end of some pretty damning reviews both of your service and your moral code.
Gargac was an Uber driver operating in Missouri, and by all accounts, he was pretty good at it -- meaning he wasn't starving or living out of his car like everyone else on the app. Still, he decided to supplement his income by wiring his car for sound, installing a series of cameras, and streaming his exploits (OK, mainly his passengers) to an audience of hundreds. Isn't this kind of illegal? Nope, not in Missouri! Is it kind of shitty, though? Oh hell yes.
When Gargac started out, he would tell people about the cameras, but he eventually stopped because he considered the results too "fake" and "produced." Instead, the budding auteur would only tell people if they asked about the cameras -- which many wouldn't, because he put up a sticker saying that they were being recorded for security reasons. Yeah, financial security reasons.
