A number of celebrities, including Kate Upton, Neil Patrick Harris and Ashton Kutcher, have taken to Twitter to defend the popular ridesharing service Uber against plans to curtail it in New York City by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Upton tweeted to the Mayor, ““Why do you want to return to days when only those in Midtown & Lower Manhattan could get a ride?”
Kutcher tweeted, “This isn’t a conservative or liberal debate it’s about politicians representing their personal interests and not their community.”
And Neil Patrick Harris added his two cents saying, “25K new residents use @Uber_NYC each week. How is a fixed # of cars supposed to serve this demand for rides? #UberMovesNYC”
