Oh, Uber, sweetie, you just can’t stop from digging yourself into a hole, can you? Just this past year, Uber has been criticized for sexual assault allegations and racist ideologies, and now they can add sexism to the list.
Apparently the company decided to remind everyone in India about Wife Appreciation Day and… it did not go well.

It’s no surprise that people took to Twitter to call the company the fuck out.
As a man who's been cooking & doing kitchen duty for over 45 years, I find this sensibility so offensive.

Oh hell no. This is completely unacceptable. Will take care of this.

Who thought this was a good idea??? Wait, we have an idea.
Uber has since apologized for the incident, but at this point, isn’t it all just a shout into the void?
This was totally inappropriate. We've removed it and we apologize.

Thanks to all the social justice warriors who stood up to sexism and misogyny. Now, who wants to take bets on Uber’s next controversy?
