Uber Wishes Its Followers a Happy Puerto Rican Flag Day With the Cuban Flag [Updated]
On Friday, Uber tried to celebrate the anniversary of the Puerto Rican flag’s creation on social media. Unfortunately, the company commemorated Puerto Rican Flag Day with an image of the wrong flag.
Ay @Uber!!! Trying to congratulate Puerto Rico, using the Cuban flag. Even in Shutter stock says “View on the window with the Cuban flag“ #fail pic.twitter.com/xW0CZFyAJT

As people on Twitter were quick to point out, the image Uber used was a photo of the Cuban flag, not the Puerto Rican flag. And as one Twitter user noted, the description of photo on Shutterstock explicitly notes that it is, in fact, the Cuban flag. The original tweet by Uber Puerto Rico, and a Facebook post bearing the same image, appear to have since been deleted.
