Uber employees have reportedly been using an internal tool called ‘God View’ to spy on celebrities’ movements.
As The Guardian reports, the company is being sued by former forensic investigator Samuel Ward Spangenberg who is accusing the ridesharing app of “age discrimination and whistleblower retaliation.”
During a court declaration in October, he said that the internal tool was being used so that employees could spy on, “high-profile politicians, celebrities and even personal acquaintances of Uber employees, including ex-boyfriends/girlfriends, and ex-spouses.”
One of the celebrities named was reportedly Beyoncé, with her movements apparently monitored at times by employees.
‘God View’ tracks the location of Uber vehicles and customers who have requested cars meaning that they can see where Bey is headed to if she uses the app. It’s supposedly only meant to be used to monitor customer refund requests and accident investigations.
It’s unknown exactly why they were allegedly spying on Beyoncé. Everyone has wanted to bump into arguably the biggest musician on earth but this seems to be a little creepy.
Spangenberg expressed his security concerns to Uber and was eventually fired 11 months later.
