The "Uber Everywhere" rapper says he won't take Uber anymore following their controversial support for Trump's Muslim ban.
Lyft pledged to donate one million dollars to the ACLU following President Trump's executive order to ban the refugees from seven predominantly Muslim nations. In turn, Madeintyo pledged to support Lyft and quit using Uber. Last week, New York City Taxi Worker went on strike at JFK airport to support the mass protest that was going on there against Trump's racist policy. Meanwhile, taking advantage of the situation, Uber continued to service rides to JFK, turning off surge pricing.
The "Uber Everywhere" rapper is the latest celebrity to throw his support behind the trending #DeleteUber boycott, which calls for people tor delete their ridesharing accounts. He posted the news on his Twitter feed.
