More than 200,000 people deleted their Uber accounts following the protest last week, marking quite a loss for the company.

Last week, following President Donald Trumpís travel ban for immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, people gathered in front of airports to protest. Among the protesters was also the taxi driver union in New York, which said taxies would not take people to and from the JFK airport.

Uber was quick to make an announcement saying that they would turn off surge pricing in the area, which is something thatís usually applied in high-traffic areas such as airports. While the intention wasnít all bad, the message was certainly twisted a bit, and people started boycotting the company. #DeleteUber started trending before the folks over at Uber could say anything in their defense, as people claimed they were trying to make a profit off the taxi protest.
