“theverge” said : A female Uber employee spoke out after a company trip to a South Korean escort bar

As it stated in

In 2014, Michael made headlines after he suggested that the company should target reporters who write about the company negatively.
Amidst Uber’s recent problems surrounding its workplace culture, a new incident involving a company trip to a South Korean escort bar has been brought to light, according to a report published by The Information.
The report outlines a trip by a group of Uber employees to a Seoul karaoke-escort bar in 2014, which included company CEO Travis Kalanick and his girlfriend, Gabi Holzwarth.
Uncomfortable, a female marketing manager, who was part of the group, left after a couple of minutes, while Holzwarth and Kalanick left after an hour.
Feeling pressured by the exchange, Holzwarth spoke with the company’s public relations executive, Rachel Whetstone, as well as Kalanick, saying that she wouldn’t lie if asked.
