The Supreme Court of Pakistan’s decision on the deputy speaker ruling case was finally made public after much delay. A short while later, Careem wrote sarcastically on social media, “Captain is ready to take you home.”
Careem is leader in the local ride-hailing industry. The business is well known for using trends to its advantage, and after the SC decision, they did it once more. The comment “Captain is ready to take you home” by Careem lead to new Twitter trend #BoycottCareem.
Supporters of the PMLN attacked Careem for having political leanings as soon as the tweet mocking Hamza Shahbaz went viral.
Some said it was Careem’s advertising campaign, while others questioned whether it was a company or political organisation.
Some criticised the business for completely neglecting service-related issues.
On the other hand, Careem is also receiving support and positive reviews from the public.
PTI supporters began downloading the app for no apparent reason.
