Holy shit, this is bad. I support all who decide to #BoycottUber, though I'm not sure it has much impact on anyone other than workers trying to get by in the gig economy.

The more expensive traditional taxi is a better model but also unaffordable to many in our cruel economy.
In other words, there are a lot of catch-22's here for people struggling to survive. In addition, most Uber cars I've seen recently also have Lyft stickers on them. So, what do you do with that? If you feel the need to use one of these services, you're effectively using both.
I mean, I guess it's all the same to the driver, more or less? And maybe you'd rather the profit-sharing go to Lyft, and while the whole thing isn't great and there's no ethical consumption under capitalism, that's I suppose marginally better.

I need everyone to pay attention to what @Uber CEO @dkhos is saying here.

Not only is he running cover for the Saudi government by saying the pre-planned murder of a @washingtonpost writer was a "mistake", he compares the murder of a human being to Uber making a tech glitch.
@Uber @dkhos @washingtonpost Jamal Khashoggi used @Uber to get around in Washington/Virginia area. He didn't have a car for a while when he went into self exile.

The sick and sad irony of Uber CEO @dkhos calling his murder by the Saudi regime a "mistake". That we should consider forgiveness. #BoycottUber
@Uber @dkhos @washingtonpost Everyone who uses Uber should consider the implications of @dkhos's words

If one of @Uber's main investors kills someone it doesn't really matter. A representative of a murderous regime can still keep a board seat.

When you're rich, your crimes become "mistakes". #BoycottUber
