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
What do you think about the video?
When I moved across the country a couple of months ago, I was trying to find a short-term place to stay while I looked around for an apartment to make my home. I've gone through my share of shady sublets, and was so worried I wouldn't land a spot that I started looking for one to book months in advance. On my first day of browsing, I came across a gorgeous and affordable one-bedroom in a really convenient location, but was super skeptical of the post because of how traumatized I am from my previous experiences.
I've dealt with creeps who ask for a cash deposit then claim they're in the hospital on the exact same day they're supposed to meet me for the keys. I've had people cancel my reservation once I've already landed in their city... Needless to say, I'm a seasoned subletter. When I found this lovely one-bedroom on Craigslist, I was sure the listing was too good to be true. So I took a proactively defensive stance when I reached out via email. I asked for boring specifications on the apartment and went over payment details with exhaustive thoroughness. I even asked if a friend could stop by to make sure there were no secret squatter tenants, or anything sketchy like that. Then, I got an email back.
TWIST: I recognized the address from the gushing fan mail I had sent it years ago. The apartment belonged to my favorite living writer and here I was, casually emailing with her directly. Flash forward a few months and we're friendly and occasionally email each other or meet for coffee to catch up. And that's how my nightmare sublet search turned into a friendship with one of the best and most famous writers of our time.
I live for real-life plot twists like this. They keep us on our toes while we cruise through this journey of life. Which is why when u/whytho37 asked Reddit to share their most insane plot twists, the results were incredible.
Scroll down for twists so good, you wouldn't believe they actually happened if you saw them in a film.
