On Monday, disturbing footage of a doctor being violently dragged from an United airplane surfaced on social media, causing a tidal wave of backlash for the airline.
According to CBC News, United forced the man off the plane against his will after he was one of four people randomly selected to forfeit their seat so airline employees could fly. When the doctor refused to deplane, explaining that he had patients waiting for him, law enforcement was called to remove him from the aircraft. In the process, the man was bloodied and literally dragged away.
Warning, the videos are disturbing.
Of course, Twitter was outraged by the cruel and violent mistreatment of the man, and had no qualms about dragging United for filth over social media.
Here are 30 of Twitter's best reactions.
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

If your reaction to the @United video is “private companies can refuse service to anyone,” you legally should have to live in the sewers— twenty griffinteen (@griffinmcelroy) April 10, 2017

People who are afraid of flying are generally more scared of the plane than the staff but United is changing all that.— Jessie (@NicCageMatch) April 10, 2017
