On Saturday night (Jan. 28), Uber was the target of criticism after tweeting that they would turn off their surge prices for potential riders coming from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. The tweet came after New York taxi drivers rallied together at the airport to protest against president Donald Trump's decision to impose an immigration ban on Muslims entering the country.
"Surge pricing has been turned off at #JFK Airport. This may result in longer wait times. Please be patient," tweeted Uber. Riders then began tweeting #deleteuber.
