Gigi Hadid Shuts Down Islamophobe Criticizing Women Wearing Hijabs

Gigi Hadid Calls Out Islamophobic Twitter User After NYC Attack

And when reporter and right-wing activist Laura Loomer tweeted a picture of two women wearing hijabs as they walked along Greenwich Street in NY, which is close to the location of the attacks, she.let rip.

Basically, Uber called out Loomer's racism and has used its full authority to ban her from using their service. Her Lyft account also was deactivated.

Imagine telling your boss "Sorry, I'm 30 minutes late for work because of how racist I am".

So not only was taking this photo a heinous, creepy thing to do, but she then followed up those baseless accusations, writing, "You'd think they'd have the decency to not walk around in hijabs @ cross street of the attack".

At the time, Uber's Regional General Manager Meghan Verena Joyce wrote an e-mail to the Uber driver community condemning the actions of neo-Nazis at the violent demonstrations, saying that the company will back them up if they have to end their ride for whatever reason.

Zayn has previously opened up about his Muslim background and when asked if he may decide to open up about it one day, he told Complex magazine: 'Who knows?

It is important to note that Uber's application doesn't display religion of drivers.


Meanwhile, the Manhattan attacker seems to have no remorse for the killings "he felt good about what he had done", reported the New York Times.

Saipov, who was shot in the abdomen by a police officer, asked to display the Islamic State's flag in his hospital room before he was arraigned on terrorism charges Wednesday.

She isn't the first controversial figure to be banned by Uber.

After reports began circulating on social media that the companies had barred Loomer, 24, from using their services, the outspoken commentator took to Twitter to lament the decision.

"My boyfriend is also half Middle Eastern", she said in 2016.

Federal prosecutors said Saipov was "consumed by hate and a twisted ideology" when he attacked.
