A 27-year-old finance executive from Gurgaon was allegedly raped by a Uber taxi driver and if the social media reactions are any indication, it seems Uber might have a hard time winning back their customers' trust. Twitter was flooded with many messages from previous Uber cab users, who are deleting the app and refusing to use their services in future.
Here are some tweets:
Giving up on using @uber services after rape committed by a Uber driver. Uber officials say all logs are at SF, USA? Are you nuts?

Is the rape Uber's fault? No. But if reports of their lapses are true, the rapist getting away is.

While Uber is facing flak from tweeple, the old fear of Delhi being an unsafe city for women is also back. Several tweets mention how the capital is still an unsafe place for women and the hashtag DelhiShameAgain is being used by many.
