Weatherman Al Roker says a New York City cab refused to stop for him and picked up a white passenger instead.

“Filed a complaint today after getting passed up again by a NYC Yellow cab. Cabbie picked up a white guy a block away. Wonder why Uber wins?” he posted on Twitter. “This happens to folks of color every day. And while most cabbies do their job, there are those ignorant, racist ones who hurt the others.”

Making a bad situation worse, he apparently was taking his son to the doctor. Roker posted a series of tweets about the matter and promises to follow up when there’s new information to share.
