Following this, supporters of the customer who had initially posted the non-Hindu delivery executive tweet started calling for a boycott of Uber Eats.
Users of the app shared pictures and videos of uninstalling the app from their phones.
It all started when a Zomato user cancelled an order because his delivery executive was not a Hindu. He asked for a refund but was not offered the same. Zomato maintained its stand and said that food has no religion, food itself is a religion. Founder Deepinder Goyal also chimed in and supported the food-delivery platform.
Zomato's tweet garnered widespread appreciation. Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram also supported Zomato and said that he has not ordered from it before but will do so now.
