Hopefully the only time I ever link buzzfeed:
Michael was particularly focused on one journalist, Sarah Lacy, the editor of the Silicon Valley website PandoDaily, a sometimes combative voice inside the industry. Lacy recently accused Uber of “sexism and misogyny.” She wrote that she was deleting her Uber app after BuzzFeed News reported that Uber appeared to be working with a French escort service. “I don’t know how many more signals we need that the company simply doesn’t respect us or prioritize our safety,” she wrote.
At the dinner, Michael expressed outrage at Lacy’s column and said that women are far more likely to get assaulted by taxi drivers than Uber drivers. He said that he thought Lacy should be held “personally responsible” for any woman who followed her lead in deleting Uber and was then sexually assaulted.
Pshhh buzzfeeds getting some good, legitimate journalism going lately! You can see most of their good pieces here: https://hubski.com/domain?id=buzzfeed.com
I'm going to hijack your post because I don't want to clutter Hubski with a ton of Uber stuff but MAN there are some great stories about Uber. Shitstorms like these turn me on. Legitimately. I feel like this is our generation's telenovelas.
note: remember when Snapchat was the worst / most sexist start up?
