According to Mashable the account that Uber responded to is a troll account that will use slang in the display name and when a company’s bot replies it uses the slang in the response.
We'd like to sincerely apologize for the offensive tweet that was sent earlier. We're investigating what happened to make sure it doesn't happen again.
