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:

You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.

A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.

She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.

Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.

A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.

So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.

And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”
