President Donald Trump’s executive order that bars travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States is also having an effect on more short-term travel within the country. Uber’s decision to drop surge pricing in New York during the protest this weekend—a move that’s seen as tantamount to support of the ban—didn’t go over well with many of the San Francisco-based company’s customers, who have begun deleting their accounts in response. Among them is Madeintyo, the Atlanta rapper whose “Uber Everywhere” track has become an unofficial anthem for the company. Madeintyo tweeted that he’s making the switch to Lyft after once taking Uber, well, everywhere.

It’s not just the whole profiting off other people’s misery thing that’s dismayed customers; there’s also the fact that Uber CEO Travis Kalanick agreed to sit on Trump’s economic advisory panel. Lyft, meanwhile, has pledged to donate $1 million to the American Civil Liberties Union over the next four years.
