Uber tells users deleting their accounts that it’s “deeply hurting” after sexism allegations

Testimony from a former Uber employee that the company has ignored systemic problems of sexual harassment and workplace discrimination continue to reverberate. The latest reaction from Uber is to try to reassure users who are deleting their accounts in protest that the Silicon Valley firm is responding to these problems.

As reported by Mashable, a number of Uber users in the process of deleting their accounts have been shown a message saying the company is “deeply hurting” after reading allegations by former employee Susan Fowler. The statement, which does not apologize or accept responsibility for the toxic culture brought to light by Fowler and others, says Uber “believes in creating a workplace where a deep sense of justice underpins everything we do.”


“What [Fowler] describes is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in,” says the statement. It then references the recently-announced“independent review” of Uber’s workplace culture, which is being led by the former US Attorney General Eric Holder (who has previously advocated for Uber) and Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington (who is an Uber board member). Other members of this investigation team are active Uber employees, which critics say raises questions about the review’s supposed independence.

This is not the first time this year that Uber has had to respond to users quitting the service in protest. Last month, a #DeleteUber campaign started after the company allegedly broke a taxi strike targeting President Donald Trump’s immigration ban at JFK airport, with the campaign leading to the deletion of more than 200,000 accounts.

This company will never get anywhere or turn a profit while Travis is at the helm. Hopefully he will step down. But we all know that will never happen.

Travis isn't interested in Uber turning a profit as long as his offshore account is growing fatter. And it IS getting plenty fat.

The leftists that deleted it will stick to it just like they moved to canada. Most of reinstalled the app within days
Leftists? So you can read the mind of a person who stops using Uber and determine their political tilt? Damn...you ARE good. How do you know they're not commie loving conservatives? ;-) I hear Ted Nugent moved back to the States now that Obama is gone. He did leave, right? He said he would, so he must have. ;-)
