Uber sends sympathetic message to users deleting their accounts after sexual harassment allegations
A heartfelt ‘goodbye’ to its customers.
Uber is sending out a message to users leaving the app because of a former employee’s allegation of sexual harassment and workplace discrimination at the company. The corporation feels your moral outrage.
As Mashable points out, a number of users going through the process of deleting their accounts have received a note from the ride-hailing company that says it is “deeply hurt” by Susan Fowler’s testimonial. Here is the full letter:
The message mentions the review Uber plans to conduct, which will be led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington. The company appears to be waiting until the investigation is complete before deciding to accept responsibility for the discrimination Fowler and other female employees have allegedly been subjected to.
People have been on an Uber-deleting streak of late.
It all started when the company suspended surge pricing at JFK Airport during a taxi strike against Trump’s immigrant ban. This was seen by many as a method for undermining the protest, and ultimately sparked #DeleteUber, a campaign that led to the deletion of more than 200,000 accounts.
