Maria Ozawa’s Facebook rant slams disrespectful Uber, Grab drivers

You can’t blame this on technology.

Former Japanese adult film celebrity Maria Ozawa — who now resides in the Philippines and attends to business ventures in Metro Manila — made it known in a Facebook post that two ride-hailing apps have become the bane of her existence.

Ozawa revealed that she recently got a text message from a man she didn’t know. The man claimed to have gotten her mobile phone number from a diver under the Uber network. Ozawa shared a screenshot of her text exchange with the man who identified himself as “Ben.”

In her caption accompanying the screenshot, Ozawa tagged the Uber Philippines Facebook page and lamented, “What is wrong with your #uberdrivers giving out customers numbers to their friends?or other customers!? I tried calling the hotline and they didn’t pick up.”

She added: “I change my name on purpose so I can protect my privacy but it still happens and this isn’t my first time blocking numbers from Uber/Grab!!!! Several times I had drivers stalk me and now the drivers are giving away costumers phone numbers !?!? Really!?”

Ozawa seems to have had it with these stalking incidents. The last sentence on her caption says it all: “I LOVE the Philippines but Why can’t I trust this country AT ALL!? Why are the people SO UNPROFESSIONAL!?”

Ozawa then asked her followers to share her posts.

    I have to agree with Maria. It is highly unprofessional of the Uber driver doing that. Surely that driver can be reported for giving out the number.

    Why the F do we even put this Japanese porn star’s opinion as news? Role model na ba ngayon ‘to? Now we have to explain to our kids who this is and what she is famous for.

      You have missed the point entirely. This is an issue of privacy period. It could happen to anyone. She just happened to have a lot of followers which made her post get noticed. Besides, she has just as much right to privacy as you and me. Being a former adult film star does not make her less of a human. Your self-righteousness is more appalling.

    A porn star concerned about her privacy. Is this a joke?

    @thecheapbastard everybody has the right to have privacy regardless of who she/he is or what he/she do for a living.

    The bottomline is why is the uber driver gave the number of maria to his friends?

    Wow cheapbastard you really are cheap. Regardless of who Maria is or was, she is still a human being who deserves her privacy. You don’t have to tell your kids what she was exactly. You can just tell them she is a celebrity. I am surprised you are having this problem. Is that guilt kicking in???!

      But lying to your children is just fine? Well probably…it is our cultural tradition. And defending a porn star…is that addiction kicking in?

    Give me an internet connection, a name and a license plate number and in short order I can tell you where you live, your GSIS number, etc. There are no more secrets. And yes, any person who has sex in front of a camera for public distribution is the last person that should ever have the first thought about privacy go through their brain. Maybe we should investigate her to see exactly what type of business she manages here in the Philippines. We already have a problem with promiscuous sex, we don’t need any additional influences adding fuel to the firestorm of adultery and fatherless children.
