Social media users are deleting their Uber apps after the ride-hailing service was accused of "strike breaking" Saturday.
The #DeleteUber hashtag rose out of a protest by the NY Taxi Workers Alliance. The alliance called for an hourlong work stoppage at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport to oppose the Trump administration's recent ban to keep refugees and citizens from certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
Uber later tweeted there wouldn't be any surge pricing at the airport. That led some to accuse the company of trying to profit off the protest. Not long after, users began to share screenshots of themselves deleting their Uber accounts.
Others pointed to Uber CEO Travis Kalanick's connection to President Donald Trump as reason to delete the application. Kalanick is one of 19 executives advising Trump on economic issues.
Uber tried to clear things up, saying Kalanick opposed the travel ban and that the company wasn't trying to break the strike, but it seems at least some of the damage was already done.
Kalanick did post a statement about the executive order saying the "ban will impact many innocent people — an issue that I will raise this coming Friday ... for President Trump's first business advisory group meeting."
