Uber allowing service to be denied to Unite the Right marchers

Marchers in this weekend’s Unite the Right 2 white nationalist rally may have a harder time getting a ride or a room. Uber, Lyft and Airbnb are allowing drivers and hosts to deny service to potential customers who participate in the rally in Washington, D.C.

Each company issued statements this week that did not directly denounce Unite the Right marchers but made clear that providers can refuse service to anyone who makes them uncomfortable or violates guidelines against discrimination.

Lyft said it had made clear to drivers in the D.C. area that “their safety comes first.”

“If they ever feel uncomfortable or disrespected by a passenger, they can cancel that ride,” the ride-share company said in a statement to CBS News.
