People Are Hilariously Calling Out Uber’s CEO For "Snitching" On Other Trump Adviser CEOs

"Uber CEO is that one friend that gets caught in hide and seek and goes ahead to tell you where everyone else is hiding."

On Saturday, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick addressed President Trump's travel and immigration orders in an email to his staff. Kalanick said the company opposes the orders and will compensate affected employees.

Kalanick has been criticized by anti-Trump protesters and Uber employees for being an adviser for Trump's business group.

The company was also accused of breaking the taxi strike at JFK airport on Saturday. Although Uber maintains to BuzzFeed News that they "did not break a taxi strike," as the official strike ended 36 minutes prior to their tweet about suspending price-surging.

In his email, as he mentions and defends his involvement with Trump, Kalanick starts to rattle off the names of other executive members who've also joined Trump's advisory group.

"This is why I agreed in early December to join President Trump's economic advisory group along with Elon Musk (CEO of Tesla), Mary Barra (Chairwoman/CEO of General Motors), Indra Nooyi (Chairwoman/CEO of Pepsi)..." and the list goes on.

People who noticed the name dropping joked that Kalanick was trying to take people down with him.
