The #DeleteUber hashtag has been gaining support all across social media after the app was criticized for trying to profit off of Trump’s “Muslim Ban.” Well as Uber has been feverishly trying to save face after they began trending, CEO Travis Kalanick sent an email to his employees denouncing the travel ban but thats not all he did.
In an exert from his email, Kalanick seemed to name drop other CEOs and their companies who are also in support of Trump:
“But whatever the city or country—from the U.S. and Mexico to China and Malaysia—we’ve taken the view that in order to serve cities you need to give their citizens a voice, a seat at the table. We partner around the world optimistically in the belief that by speaking up and engaging we can make a difference. Our experience is that not doing so shortchanges cities and the people who live in them. This is why I agreed in early December to join President Trump’s economic advisory group along with Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla), Mary Barra (Chairwoman/CEO of General Motors), Indra Nooyi (Chairwoman/CEO of Pepsi), Ginni Rometty (Chairwoman/CEO of IBM), Bob Iger (Chairman/CEO of Disney), Jack Welch (former Chairman of GE) and a dozen other business leaders.”
Well of course, social media had a field day with Kalanick’s alleged dry snitching:
