Uber customers left baffled by bizarre and ridiculous email promotion

Uber has been in the spotlight for all of the wrong reasons recently.

After the announcement that their private hire license has been revoked in London, Uber aren't have a great deal of luck at the moment. However, it seems that the mobile taxi app really isn't helping it's own reputation.

Photos have surfaced on Twitter of a sexist UberEats advert that claims to champion Wife Appreciation Day, but instead reinforces outdated gender stereotypes. Classic.

The advert calls upon husbands to order an UberEats to 'let your wife take a day off from the kitchen', because of course women BELONG IN THE KITCHEN.

Twitter is understandably outraged by the advert:

The adverts poor reception has been exacerbated by the repeated charges of sexism Uber has faced this year. With headlines like the below, it's hardly surprising Uber have produced sexist marketing tripe

Uber have yet to respond to the complaints, I hear computers were pretty basic in the 1950s.
