United Airlines is making headlines after videos have surfaced showing a man being forcefully dragged off of a flight after refusing to deplane after being asked by officials. Four passengers in total were asked to leave the flight in order to make room for four airline employees and while the other three passengers exited, the man shown in the video did not. He declined to leave explaining that he was a doctor and had patients to tend to in the morning. After the manager insisted that the man must deplane, the customer still refused. After the situation escalated, police officers then boarded and proceeded to drag the man off the plane.
The video has been shared numerous times on social media which has led to many celebs speaking out on Twitter. Ava Duvernay was appalled saying QUOTE – “This could be me or you next time. Shame on @United who broke customer trust + instigated this. Shame on the airport cops. Cowardly assault.” Zendaya wrpte – “I am appalled and absolutely disgusted…this is unacceptable.” Kumail Nanjiani said – “So @united sucks. But the Chicago police who dragged the man off the flight are also monsters. Police using unnecessary force, again.” Joss Whedon tweeted – “Getting on a United flight this morning. Excited to, I don’t know… stay on?” Chrissy Teigen wrote – “cannot wait to use ‘i will re-accommodate your ass’ in my next fight.” Whitney Cummings said – “I feel like Pepsi and United are pulling from the same employment agencies.” Jeffrey Wright poked fun at their slogan tweeting – “United. Fly the Friendly Skies. Friendly…like this boot on your throat.” But definitely the most ironic was what Nick Nicotera pointed out about his United app update. When updating the app it says “supports new drag and drop feature” below the united icon but in this case, it applies to something a bit more literal. Nick tweeted – “Bad timing on your app update, @united.”
Jimmy Kimmel made a spoof of the incident with a fake United promo video called “United Airlines. F You.” Check it out:
