“The ride-hailing app is being accused of profiting from a strike by New York’s taxi drivers that took place yesterday evening.
Drivers from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance refused to pick up airport passengers between 6pm and 7pm in protest as protesters joined together against Trump’s ban inside John F. Kennedy International Airport.
But people said Uber continued offering rides to and from JFK despite the strike and even switched off their surge pricing, which is usually put on when demand is high.
In response, hundreds of people are now using the hashtag #DeleteUber to protest against the app and have also accused the company’s CEO of collaborating with the new US president.”
