Kendall Jenner deals a blow to Uber with Snapchat Lyft promo

Lyft Jenner

Eminent online influencer Kendall Jenner has scalped ride-hailing app Uber, ditching it for its US rival Lyft after the company supposedly suspended her.

Jenner, a Kardashian alumni, and one of the most valued social media influencers for brands, brought the company under the microscope after sister Kim complained on Twitter that she had to ferry Kendall around town in a widely engaged tweet due to the ban.

Following this, Jenner, took to Snapchat to thank Lyft for picking her up, offering her “free rides” and for “taking care” of her.

Uber told Entertainment Tonight that she was not banned however: “She has not been banned. It was a minor account issue that is being resolved. While it is being resolved her account was put on hold. Uber support has reached out."

Nonetheless, the issue seems to have cost the company a valuable ambassador.
