    While Uber has yet to officially respond to Apple’s $1 billion investment in Didi, their Chinese rival, CEO Travis Kalanick voiced his opinion on Twitter in a hilarious tweet.

    The girlfriend he’s referring to is Gabi Holzwarth, the talented violinist who says that it was Kalanick who helped her overcome a decade-long eating disorder that could’ve killed her.

    If there’s one thing we’ve learned from this tweet, it’s that no matter what the situation is, it’s important to always keep a good sense of humor.
