Viral posts on social media caused a massive public boycott of the Uber app, leading to CEO Travis Kalanick to resign from President Trump’s economic advisory board

After a viral hashtag inciting internet users to uninstall Uber from their phones due to the company’s low wage rates, a conversation about ethics in capitalism arose over social media.

Uber’s CEO, Travis Kalanick, had been appointed to the Trump economic advisory board, along with Elon Musk and Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi, shortly after the election results were in. Today, Kalanick resigned, but the other two may be rethinking their positions with the White House given the controversy over Trump’s executive orders on immigration.
