Right wing activist Laura Loomer has been banned from Uber after she tweeted about her inability to find a car driven by a “non Muslim.”
The former Project Veritas operative tweeted that she was late to a New York Police Department press conference on the recent terror attack because she was unable to find an Uber that was not driven by someone who did not look like they were Muslim.
According to news sources her comments then escalated to asking for the creation of a non-Islamic form of Uber because she “never wants to support another Islamic immigrant driver.”
@Uber will literally hire an Islamic terrorist, but they will ban a conservative journalist for addressing legitimate safety concerns. ?

Uber has since banned the outspoken activist from the app, according to Business Insider.
Ride sharing app Lyft also deactivated Loomer’s account following the tweets.
Imagine telling your boss “Sorry, I’m 30 minutes late for work because of how racist I am.” https://t.co/e3pIFXlA9j

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
