Olivia Munn made early Uber investments in 2011, was criticized

Hollywood star Olivia Munn – known for stints on "The Daily Show" and "The Newsroom" as well as films like "X-Men: Apocalypse" and "Magic Mike" – made a knowledgeable investment in Uber 2011, the actress was revealed in a tweet Friday. But her tweet, which patted both Uber and herself on the back of her IPO day, rubbed many people in the wrong way, as evidenced by the burning answers to it. She removed the tweet later on Friday after the setback. "In 2011 I invested in UBER when it only had about 7,000 cars in just a few cities and 1.8 miles in net income," wrote Munn in the now deleted tweet . "To see how much it has grown has been really remarkable. Excited to see all places @Uber takes us in the future." "We get it, you're rich" a person replied . Several people called tweet "tone deaf". "You should really read through their hostile work environment, shady business practices, and the fact that one of their primary" innovations "takes a traditional middle class job and makes it into pay wages" replied another person . On Wednesday, drivers for both Uber and Lyft (who had their IPO earlier this year), engaged in protests and strikes and demanded higher wages reported Business Insider Graham Rapier. Similarly, a commenter pointed out that while Munn referred to Uber with 7000 in 2011, "Uber has zero cars. They belong to all drivers!" Others were confused by Munn's introduction of an image…

Hollywood star Olivia Munn – known for stints on “The Daily Show” and “The Newsroom” as well as films like “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Magic Mike” – made a knowledgeable investment in Uber 2011, the actress was revealed in a tweet Friday.

But her tweet, which patted both Uber and herself on the back of her IPO day, rubbed many people in the wrong way, as evidenced by the burning answers to it. She removed the tweet later on Friday after the setback.

“In 2011 I invested in UBER when it only had about 7,000 cars in just a few cities and 1.8 miles in net income,” wrote Munn in the now deleted tweet . “To see how much it has grown has been really remarkable. Excited to see all places @Uber takes us in the future.”

“We get it, you’re rich” a person replied . Several people called tweet “tone deaf”.

“You should really read through their hostile work environment, shady business practices, and the fact that one of their primary” innovations “takes a traditional middle class job and makes it into pay wages” replied another person . On Wednesday, drivers for both Uber and Lyft (who had their IPO earlier this year), engaged in protests and strikes and demanded higher wages reported Business Insider Graham Rapier.

Similarly, a commenter pointed out that while Munn referred to Uber with 7000 in 2011, “Uber has zero cars. They belong to all drivers!”

Others were confused by Munn’s introduction of an image of the Fearless Girl statue in front of a Uber banner:

“You abuse the message of that statue,” ] a person wrote . Throughout Uber’s existence, it has been the subject of at least 49 scandals, as described by Business Insider’s Kate Taylor and Benjamin Goggin. They have included several allegations of sexual harassment.

Some of those who responded to Munn’s tweet seemed supportive – a tweeted “No more DUI’s!”, For example – most responded negatively.

However, there is no doubt that Munn’s investment was financially cautious. In 2011, Uber was valued at $ 60 million. Uber made its debut as a public company with an initial market share of $ 75.5 billion (though a little since then).
