Wannabe Instagram sensation Miss Gabrielle Canales became internet-famous this week when a video of her stealing all the money from a tip jar in an Uber cab went viral.
The 18-year-old Miss Canales, who has several explicit pictures and videos on Instagram and other forms of social media, explained her action which brought her to worldwide fame. She thought no one would see it and claims she only took five dollars from the driver.
Driver Mohammed H. Bhuiyan informed Uber of her action, who advised him to take it up with police. For some reason, the video then found its way to the internet where it has now gone viral.
Miss Canales can be seen, whilst only wearing a bra, chatting with her friend in the back of the car. Upon stopping, she grabs all the money from Mr. Bhuiyan’s tip jar and then exits the vehicle quickly.

By the time Mr. Bhuiyan realizes what is happening, she and her two friends had exited the car already. It appears that the two friends in the car were unaware of her plot and did not respond as she snatched the money before getting out.
Before getting into his car, she posed in her underwear in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, for several two Instagram pictures.
The young girl is believed to have grown up in Central Islip, New York. Her Instagram account has since been deleted and she is prohibited from ever using Uber again.
According to Mr. Bhuiyan’s account, Uber dropped the matter when they contacted Miss Canales and she denied ever stealing the money. They told him to take the matter to police if he wanted to pursue it further but the man says he was too busy.
Since the video went viral, Uber has since contacted him again to offer him more support and have banned Miss Canales from using the app.
