Travis Kalanick’ Controversies; Surprise!
The former Uber CEO’s popularity as a billionaire has a triumphant career as an entrepreneur, but the backlash is a couple of controversies he got stranded in.
He was trolled as ‘scrappy entrepreneur during 2013 for asking the employees not to have sex with each other provided they are in the same chain of command and for charging a $200 ‘puke charge’ for sick workers.
Around the same year, a video of him swearing at Uber driver over fares went viral. That trolled him for his misconduct and left him to be a private driver.
A year later in 2014, he got caught up in a new dispute of pet naming a service-for- women-on-demand as ‘Boob-er’ in an interview with the magazine GQ. He was using his humor perhaps, but sadly that landed at the wrong place in all wrong ways leaving him to deal with sexist accusations afterward.
