Last week, Uber board member Arianna Huffington maintained that CEO Travis Kalanick was not on the hot seat.
As scandals pile up, we'll see if that sentiment lasts.
Over the weekend, The Information published a report that Kalanick, as well as Uber managers and other executives like SVP Emil Michael, visited a karaoke-escort bar in Seoul, South Korea during a business trip in 2014.
If true, that incident would be bad enough, but it appears to have emerged solely due to Uber's attempts to cover it up.
According to Holzwarth, Emil Michael called her three weeks ago as the news about Uber's workplace culture became a full-fledged scandal.
When Mr. Michael called, he told her that “things have been really rough out here,” referring to Uber’s issues.
