Last night, following the video leak of a combative exchange between Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and his driver over Uber’s fare structure, which culminated with Kalanick suggesting that his driver should “take responsibility for his own shit”, we asked: “So, where should we set the over/under on Kalanick’s remaining tenure with Uber?”

Fast forward less than 24 hours and it’s clear that Kalanick is feeling the pressure after sending an apology email to Uber staff saying that he’s “ashamed” of his comments and clearly needs to “grow up” and seek “leadership help.” Per the Financial Times:

“To say that I am ashamed is an extreme understatement,” Mr Kalanick said in an email to Uber staff.

“My job as your leader is to lead . . . and that starts with behaving in a way that makes us all proud. That is not what I did, and it cannot be explained away.”

He added: “It’s clear this video is a reflection of me and the criticism we’ve received is a stark reminder that I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up. This is the first time I’ve been willing to admit that I need leadership help and I intend to get it.”
