Loomer has since defended her remarks in a series of tweets.
Far-right activist, Laura Loomer, was banned by Uber and Lyft following a public spat on twitter where she discriminated Muslim drivers. Alt-right pundit Laura Loomer was eager to jump into the fray, photographing two women in hijab near the lower Manhattan site of the terror attack, and accusing them of "rubbing it in everyone's face".
Right wing activist Laura Loomer has been banned from Uber after she tweeted about her inability to find a vehicle driven by a "non Muslim".
Authorities on Thursday charged Uzbekistan-born USA immigrant Sayfullo Saipov with providing material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organisation - Islamic State - and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.
Heavy rains, strong winds, Sunday into Monday
Heavy rain will move into New England as the low passes right overhead from south to north tonight through Monday morning. With the very strong jet streams, thunderstorms are also possible but this element of the forecast is not as likely.
Her comments came after reports revealed that the NY attack was reportedly carried out by a former Uber driver. "It's extremely unfortunate and this is a conversation we need to have for our safety". Uber said it is cooperating with investigators.
Uber said Mr Saipov, who has said he was inspired by Islamic State and shot and injured by police at the scene, had passed the company's background checks and had made more than 1,400 journeys during his work with the company.
Lyft, also followed suit and deactivated the racist woman's account.
Uber then banned her from the app, according to Business Insider. The company noted that it will "act swiftly and decisively to uphold our Community Guidelines, including our policy against discrimination of any kind - that includes banning people from the app". She and her sister have in the past been outspoken in showing their support for the Muslim community and even attended a march together with their mother, who is from the Netherlands, to protest President Donald Trump's attempted travel ban.
