    Pamela Anderson is pleading with you all -- if you're gonna ride Uber/Lyft, keep an eye out and don't do it alone

    Pamela doubled down on her apprehension for ride-hail apps like Uber and Lyft ... claiming they're a haven for predators. She went on "TMZ Live" Tuesday to promote the buddy system.

    The model-turned-actress spoke to DailyMail.com http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...derson-describes-uncomfortable-Uber-ride.html

    ..exclusively on Tuesday to reveal how vulnerable she felt when she took an Uber for the first time by herself.

    'I was very uncomfortable even though it was the premiere class, which is supposedly the best.

    'I was in a long evening gown and could see him staring at me in the mirror and over his shoulder.

    'It was very uncomfortable, very late and a long ride home. It made me think of vulnerable young girls alone late at night after a few drinks,' she said.

    Her discomfort prompted her to share a PSA for the National Limousine Association's latest campaign to implement more rigorous checks on drivers.

    The campaign demands that drivers have to pass a fingerprint test to rule them out for having criminal histories which include sexual crimes before they are allowed to accept passengers.

    I love that she was honest and elaborated about her experience — it gives her voice weight.

    She felt uncomfortable. The driver didn't say anything wrong. He looked in his rear view mirror. Would she have been OK if there was no mirror? Could it be that the driver thought she was attractive? Could it be that she was wearing clothes to draw attention? I'd bet that if Shaquile O'Neal were in the back seat the driver would grab a glance. She was probably safer in the Uber than auditioning for a movie.

    And yet thousands of parents send their children off in a strangers car every day, while Uber not only allows it, but seemingly encourages it based on the company’s continual inaction.

    How would that work with the "get fired for having someone else in your car" rule?

    This is a desperate propaganda ad produced by the Cabbie Cartels who have seen their revenues drop in states where rideshare became legal. Not sure why the Cabbie Cartels thought it was a good idea to use an unwholesome woman to promote their propaganda however, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this hasbeen opportunist makes a porn sequel at a later date and promotes it on Twitter using hashtag #MeatTwo.

    Yes, you regurgitated your same text from yesterday when I posted something similar in NEWS. Not really sure I understand how the cabbie cartels are any different from Uber or Lyft at this point? Every PR response from them after a sexual assault does nothing to deviate from the fact that their own policies never change, that their background checks let criminals slip through the cracks, that passengers and drivers are being assaulted on a daily basis, and that they exploit their own workforce to the point of exhaustion (96% turnover) — to name only a few indiscretions.

    Pamela Anderson deserves a special place in hell for her stand on vaccinations. Her most famous quote was "my son is all the science I need" just proves how ignorant she is. She has the blood of children on het hands for encouraging parents to not vaccinate their kids. So when she starts shilling about not taking uber or whatever I say to her shut your pie hole.

    Yes, I regurgitated the same text from the same story you regurgitated. To answer your question, the differences between the Cabbie Cartels and the Rideshare outfits is this: The Cabbie Cartels are the ones who are trying to hinder the growth of the Rideshare outfits through bogus disingenuous insincere propaganda. You think the Cabbie Cartels are suddenly more concerned about sexual assault then they are their loss of revenues? You think the Cabbie Cartels have never had an employee who didn't rape, assault, or attack a passenger? Are you in belief that the Cabbie Cartels are immune from a high turnover rate of employees? If you really believe your bu11$hit, I am curious to know how much rent you pay to exist under that rock you live under. :p

    BE YOUR OWN BOSS! Propaganda is rampant— I agree.

    Hinder growth? Uber and Lyft do that on their own just fine.

    Cabbie cartels are just as guilty as Uber and Lyft — you’re proving my point.

    And every time a driver makes less than minimum-wage, they’re thrown into survival mode. Think some of these assaults aren’t directly tied to mania, which occurred as a result of their less than minimum-wage earnings?

    I’ve cleared a patch of grass under my rock for you — have a seat.

    Hmmm, do you smoke a special sort of grass that contributes to your rabbit trail form of logic? How the hell do you connect wage level and drivers in survival mode to mania that leads to sexual assault? WTH? Please enlighten.

    So, you willingly promote disingenuous Cabbie Cartel propaganda because you voluntarily chose to do a job in which you’re only capable of earning a minimum wage and somehow that is going to turn you into a rapist? Ever heard of Harvey Weinstein or Bill Clinton? Predators come from all sorts of socioeconomic backgrounds, and you should be ashamed of yourself for implying that impoverished people are the only people capable of committing assaults. If you feel that you have those types of tendencies, then please do the world a favor and voluntarily exchange your rock habitat for a habitat that has bars around it.

    I don’t pretend to understand the psychological motivations behind each incident — I wasn’t there, but it’s my belief that sustained levels of distress can inhibit your neocortex, the upper brain center responsible for rational and reflective decision making. From a psychological prospective, when a human feels angry or vulnerable, they’re more likely to resort to impulsive or dangerous behavior. This, then, means there’s a possibility of Uber or Lyft being a “trigger” in at least one assault — hence the statement. And if there’s a possibility that something is true for one individual, it can be true for two, and so on. However, again, I could be wrong, because I haven’t spoken to each individual and asked, “What were you feeling the moment prior to the assault while you were driving ... for Uber or Lyft.”

    That was impassioned — thank you. You’re clearly feeling hurt from earlier, so I’m gonna let you sit with that emotion and breathe for a bit.

    Before you talk out your ass be sure you have the right 90s sex symbol.

    Trump EconomicsTrump Economics, oh my, by your logic, no Mc Donald's or Walmart customer is safe. And, people of means are never stressed enough to resort to impulsive or dangerous behavior.

    Broad brush much?

    Because morons who don’t get their kids vaccinated are going to start a plague.
