Early this morning, footage showing a doctor being forcefully removed from a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville went viral. The man was seemingly left injured after he refused to voluntarily give up his seat, allegedly for stand-by employees who needed to be in Louisville on Monday for a flight.
As you can imagine, Twitter isn't very happy over how United dealt with the situation, and the brand has been trending on Twitter for most of the day. Here's how social media users have been slamming the airline...
UNITED: you may be asked to vacate or be taken off the plane by force— ☕netw3rk (@netw3rk) April 10, 2017
UNITED: but for $49.99 you can upgrade to trial by combat
Somewhere on Cable News: "Last night, United Airlines became Presidential."— Frank Conniff (@FrankConniff) April 10, 2017
For your safety, United will now begin doling out unbridled carnage by group number. Passengers with small children can request to be maced.— Lauren Duca (@laurenduca) April 10, 2017
UNITED: Leggings are a breach of decorum.— Jamison Foser (@jamisonfoser) April 10, 2017
ALSO UNITED: We will beat you and drag you from the plane if we want your seat for our employee.
Ironically, not enough seats in the conference room where United is having its crisis meeting.— Jon Lovett (@jonlovett) April 10, 2017
