Celebrities React to the #DeleteUber Campaign

Uber users are not happy with the company following their decisions during the Muslim ban protests at JFK airport on Saturday (January 28).

During the protests, the New York Taxi Workers Alliance temporarily halted service to the airport in order to stand in solidarity with the protesters.

Uber, on the other hand, decided to eliminate surge pricing at JFK, which many saw as a way to capitalize on the lack of taxi service especially due to CEO Travis Kalanick‘s connection to Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Lyft decided to also stand in solidarity with the protesters, sharing a statement expressing their disagreement with the new immigration policy and promising to donate $1 million to the ACLU.

While Uber released a statement saying it was not their intent to break the strike, many users have been urging others to delete the app following their actions.

“#ByeUber I can not support a company that backs hate. Soooooooo #ByeBitch deleting my account and canceling yo ass for EVERYTHING YOU STAND FOR!!! #togetherwestand #wethepeople #LOVEWILLWIN,” Taraji P. Henson wrote on her Instagram.

Other celebrities including Lena Dunham, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Hannah Hart have spoken out.
