UBER STEPS TO SUPPORT COMPETITOR ZOMATO, FACES BACKLASH FROM CUSTOMERS #BOYCOTTUBEREATS

When you order food online, what do you do generally? Well in case of most of the people, they see the time being taken for the food to arrive and wait patiently for the food to arrive. But, there is one Twitter user who chose to see the religion of the delivery guy as his priority.

In the tweet, the man with the name of “@NaMo_Sarkar” tweeted that a “non-Hindu” delivery guy was allotted to him to deliver his food. When he contacted Zomato, they refused to change the delivery guy and also informed that the amount is non-refundable.


The user then angrily took to Twitter and shared the screenshots of his order. He also tweeted and said, Just cancelled an order on @ZomatoIN they allocated a non hindu rider for my food they said they can't change rider and can't refund on cancellation I said you can't force me to take a delivery I don't want don't refund just cancel.

And Zomato very decently replied, “Food doesn’t have a religion.”

After this conversation went viral, many customers of the food app came out in support of the Food delivery app, and one of them who came out as a supporter was one of their competitor, Uber Eats.


Uber Eats tweeted “@ZomatoIN, we stand by you.”

This tweet went viral and was trending on Twitter in no time. And there was a group of people who did not settle with it and thought the food applications were being hypocritical in their action. And this prompted a new trend of #BoycottUberEats.

In support of the man who canceled his order because his delivery person was a non-Hindu driver, many people shared videos which showed that they had deleted and uninstalled both Zomato and Uber Eats from their phones.
