A young woman stole money from an Uber driver in August. This month the video was posted on Reddit causing it to go viral on YouTube.

The woman in question is 18-year-old Gabrielle Canales from New York.  The Daily Mail reported on the "breaking news" repeatedly referring to Canales as a "scantily-clad women" implying her style of dress directly related to her dramatic crime spree. 

Canales told Buzzfeed that she immediately regretted the theft and gave the money back to the driver in a tip - the total of $5.00. (Of course if she "tipped" him $5.00 and stole $5.00, technically she stiffed him on a tip.) 

"The lesson was learned that same day. That’s why the gentlemen was paid back. It was me being childish. To the Uber driver, my sincere apologies."

The apology and repayment may have been sufficient but Canales didn't help her case by mocking the story on social media and being combative with critics. 








As expected Twitter users clapped back with some harsh comments of their own.







Unfortunately, some news organizations couldn't focus on the crime the girl committed without also referencing her attire.



Maybe the next time this teenager decides to steal she'll wear a sweater.
