All You Need To Know About The #DeleteUber Campaign
In January 17th, Uber was alleged to make gains from a taxi driver strike and protest against Former President Donald Trump’s travel ban, hence the commencement of #DeleteUber campaign in January 201.
When the protest against Uber began, it disabled surge pricing in the area surrounding New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, where the taxi strike occurred just to prove that it is not trying to profit from tragedies and emergencies such as the travel ban
Sadly, it was a bit late because immediately the #DeleteUber campaign news got to social media channels like Twitter, millions of Uber users began to delete their accounts and stopped using Uber services.
This, in no small measure, affected the financial gains and profits that the company previously enjoyed.
It was later discovered that the entire ordeal was due to a misunderstanding about surge pricing.
Uber’s CEO Travis Kalanick in response to the whole saga decided to excuse himself from his economic adviser position and not attend the economic advisory council’s meeting with former President Trump because people were beginning to question his connections to Donald Trump, especially his employees.
He, in a press release said “We will fight for the rights of immigrants in our communities so that each of us can be who we are with optimism and hope for the future.”
Lastly, CEO Kalanick stepped down from the chief executive officer role, and CEO Dara Khosrowshahi who is the present Uber CEO took over from him.
I bet that this guide has made deleting an Uber account as well as removing an Uber app from your iPhone, and Android device an easy process.
