‘Boycott United’: Twitter Users Outraged After Man Forcibly Removed from Flight
Twitter is not happy with United Airlines.
After video of a passenger being forcibly dragged from an overbooked flight was shared Sunday, Twitter users were quick to share hashtags like #boycottunited and #dontflyunited. Some of these users claimed to be years-long customers, with one frequent flyer suggesting he would “pay more to avoid your planes.”
United CEO Oscar Munoz’s response to the incident only fueled users’ outrage for its euphemistic use of “re-accommodate.”
On Monday, the Chicago Police Department — the city where the incident occurred — said an investigation into the incident was ongoing.
