As you may already know, #DeleteUber happened this past weekend, thanks to real life Scrooge – Uber’s CEO Kalanick – in which he stated in a (non-spam) e-mail to Uber employees that they “need to work with Trump.” That horrible catchphrase aside, he made drivers show up at the Immigration Ban protest at LAX in Los Angeles, California where protestors were fighting for basic human rights, so he could exploit them/staffers for his own commercial gain.
We here at WOW want to make things in your life easier now that the political climate is seriously outta pocket these days. A lot of our readers were wondering how to delete their Uber account (not just the app off their phone), so I put together an easy how-to so you can say #boybye, Uber, and hello, Lyft!
Check it out:
Step 1: Go to Uber’s “Help” page: https://help.uber.com/h/24010fe7-7a67-4ee5-9938-c734000b144a
Step 2: You will see two boxes to fill out:
Step 3: In the first box, type: YES.
Step 4: In the second box, EXPRESS YOURSELF and let them know exactly WHY you are deleting your account.
If you need help, here’s what I wrote (a combo of my words and ones I found on various twitters):
Travis Kalanick and his company endorsed breaking a picket line striking in solidarity for basic human rights this weekend, thereby turning his employees into scabs for his own economical gain and actively ignored the protest that affects the moral fabric of our country. Kalanick actively colludes, collaborates, and empowers fascists. He enriches himself economically while exploiting his employees. To me, his tactics are almost alkaline with Trump’s and since he’ll never be my president, you’ll never be my ride service again.
STEP 5: Now go into your Uber App’s settings, click LOG OUT, and delete the app!
STEP 6: Download Lyft and get yo life!
