After a public meltdown grew to the point of a trending topic on Twitter, a far-right activist has been banned from Uber.
Uber told Business Insider that Laura Loomer had been banned for violating the platform’s community guidelines.
Loomer’s racism was not limited to taxi drivers.
Loomer’s behavior was offensive enough that Alyssa Milano reported her to Twitter for violating the company’s rules against hate speech.

As of publication, Twitter has yet to take down Loomer’s account. Lyft, the other ride-sharing service targeted by Loomer, did not respond to Business Insider’s request for comment as to whether they had banned Loomer from its platform.
UPDATE [9:30 PM EST, 11/1/2017] Business Insider correspondent Max Tani is now reporting that Lyft has followed the lead of Uber and deactivated Loomer’s account.
Twitter, however, still has yet to take action.
