Uber's CEO was given a one-star rating using his own ride-hailing app after getting into a heated exchange with the driver.

Travis Kalanick entered the Uber Black Car on Superbowl Sunday (5 February) with two female companions, before being dropped off in a San Francisco location.

But as he was getting ready to leave the car, 37-year-old Fawzi Kamel decided to take the opportunity to question Kalanick on Uber drivers' falling incomes.

Uber now charges passengers in San Francisco $3.75 (£3.03) per mile and $0.65 per minute compared to $4.90 per mile and $1.25 per minute in 2012.
