The woman who won't have the ride-hailing services to complain about anymore is Laura Loomer, whose Twitter bio says she's an "investigative journalist" and "former Project Veritas operative".

Supermodel Gigi Hadid had some harsh words for far-right activist and Twitter personality Laura Loomer after the former Project Veritas member lashed out at all Muslims on social media following the October 31 attack in Manhattan, New York.

Basically, Uber called out Loomer's racism and has used its full authority to ban her from using their service. Later Lyft too deactivated her account.

Imagine telling your boss "Sorry, I'm 30 minutes late for work because of how racist I am".

'Someone needs to create a non Islamic form of Uber or Lyft because I never want to support another Islamic immigrant driver, ' Loomer wrote in one post on Wednesday.

Laura Loomer, who stormed the Public Theater's production of Julius Caesar this summer due to the title character's resemblance to President Trump, sparked outrage on Wednesday after a series of tweets targeting Muslims. She criticized Muslim women for simply walking down the street in hijabs, claiming they were "rubbing it in everyone's face".

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.

Gigi and her sister Bella have been vocal about their faith, especially in the wake of Trump's immigration ban earlier this year (which they protested in NY in January).

Loomer has over 100,000 followers on Twitter. She also said she would sue Uber and Lyft.

Mr Saipov told investigators he chose to attack on Halloween because he knew that there would be a lot of people on the streets and that his plan was to kill people on the West Side Highway and then "proceed to the Brooklyn Bridge to strike pedestrians", according to a complaint filed against him.
