After the announcement, UberEats received tens of thousands of orders in just a few minutes, according to Metro. This led to the app crashing. Which led to many hungry, confused, angry, betrayed, and distraught Londoners. They did not hold back their feelings.
To make matters worse, this promotion was offered on November 14, which also happens to be World Diabetes Day.
Better luck next time, guys.
