12 of the Most Inspired Reasons People Gave for Deleting Their Uber Accounts

Uber is steadily paddling through a rocky PR shitstorm. Over the weekend, following news of the Muslim Travel Ban issued by the Trump administration, thousands of angry citizens turned up at JFK airport in NY to stage an open protest. The NY Taxi Workers Alliance additionally called for an hour-long halt in services to further protest the ban. 

And that's right about where Uber issued a tweet saying they'd halt surge prices, and continue providing rides to and fro the airport. Some folks took this as an insensitive ploy to swoop in and capitalize on profits otherwise being willingly forfeited by taxi workers, eager to put on a display of outrage and unrest over the Muslim Travel Ban. Hundreds, if not thousands of people went on to delete the Uber app from their phones, and these are some of the more colorful reasons for why:

Seven-year-old Remi Urbano wanted a pet kitty for a long time. At first, his father told him no. Then he said no again. And again. Then, eventually, he said that Remi could have a cat if the photo featured to the left received 1,000 Facebook "likes." More than 100,000 "likes" later, Remi's wish was granted in the form of a cat to call his own.

November 5th @ 6PM
Posted by Dan's wife with the headline "Dan thinks there is NO way we can do this. I say there is. Help us out. We really want a cat named Hairy Pawturrr. If you can't like, share. Shares count too! Thanks so much everyone!!"

Hairy Pawturr … HAIRY PAWTURR! If those little kiddies weren't enough, how can you pass up on having a small kitten in this world named Hairy Pawturr!! (not to mention the HA HA to the face of the man who belittles social media). Of course, I did my part to 'like' and 'share'. I didn't think much about it until 10PM that night when I checked the photo again. It was just under 900 shares and 400 likes. I snickered and anticipated the look on Dan's face in the morning.

November 6th @ 9:30AM
The post had gone viral and it exploded to over 20,000 shares and likes—not to mention a following on the Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page. It was total insanity, but also total hilarity to hear Dan say, "Maybe I under shot it".

As if this story were not cute enough, Remi has named his new kitty Hairyette Pawturr. OMG!!!!!!!!
