Uber bans right-wing activist after anti-Islamic tweets

A pickup driver killed eight people in NY on Tuesday, mowing down cyclists and pedestrians before striking a school bus, in the city's first deadly attack blamed on terror since September 11, 2001.

After Loomer's outburst, both Uber and Lyft informed Business Insider they had canceled Loomer's accounts for violating the community guidelines.

"Nearly every cab @uber @lyft driver in NYC is Muslim".

The self-declared "investigative journalist" who had appeared on Fox news earlier, wanted Uber and Lyft to stop working with Islamic immigrant 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.
