Ken Bone, undecided voter, white male and Guess Who? board game character is now also a viral sensation.
America was introduced to Ken Bone at the second presidential debate as an undecided voter. CNN referred to him as the “winner” of that debate. His question for Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump at the town hall-style debate was, “What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs?”
While his question may have been a bit of a doozy, it seems his appearance — which has inspired many internet memes — is what has caused him to go viral in the first place.

Whatever the cause, Bone has scored an endorsement deal with Uber — or more specifically, uberSELECT, which riders to choose luxury cars — and they are apparently compensating him with free car rides in lieu of actual cash.
Additionally, it has been discovered that Bone thinks the 2012 murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman was justified.
While it may not be shocking that Bone was actually undecided on whether to vote for a man who has pending sexual assault cases; has all but admitted to being attracted to children; and is a documented racist, still his comments are particularly vile.
“Bad guy legally kills kid in self defense,” Bone said on a Reddit thread. “Sucks for everybody.”
It “sucks” most for Martin, who did not live to see his 18th birthday, while the man who murdered him walks free, continuing to commit crimes and prove that he is a criminal.
Uber has not yet commented on the controversy surrounding their new spokesman.
