Tuesday after the attack, Loomer tweeted: "Everyone who opposed @realDonaldTrump's travel ban looks like a total a******* right now".

In the aftermath of the terror attack that struck New York City on Tuesday, a self-described "investigative-journalist" and blogger Laura Loomer posted a very insensitive anti-muslim tweet on her page.

Laura Loomer films herself on Periscope as she interrupts the Public Theater production of "Julius Caesar" on June 16, 2017.

A far-right activist, Laura Loomer, wasted no time and started spewing hate on Twitter for all Muslim drivers following the horrific Manhattan attack.

She was referring to the October 31 violent incident in which a 29-year-old legal immigrant, originally from Uzbekistan, plowed a pickup truck into a crowd, killing eight and injuring more than 10, according to CNN.

And when reporter and right-wing activist Laura Loomer tweeted a picture of two women wearing hijabs as they walked along Greenwich Street in NY, which is close to the location of the attacks, she.let rip. "It's extremely unfortunate and this is a conversation we need to have for our safety". She also said she would sue Uber and Lyft.

Zayn has previously opened up about his Muslim background and when asked if he may decide to open up about it one day, he told Complex magazine: 'Who knows? Uber has not put out an official statement regarding her ban.

Among those complaints, which sparked outrage online, Loomer lamented that she was late to a press conference because she could not find an Uber driver who she did not believe was Muslim.

Lyft confirmed Loomer's account has been deactivated, while an Uber spokesperson said, "I can confirm she was banned for violating our Community Guidelines".

Following the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, both Uber and Lyft vowed to take a strict stance on users who were discriminatory, racist or hateful. The company noted that it will "act swiftly and decisively to uphold our Community Guidelines, including our policy against discrimination of any kind - that includes banning people from the app".
