Over the past week, we’ve seen a huge controversy surrounding the American aviation airline, United Airlines. As some of you may already know, United are the latest brand to reel the wrath of social media, after footage surfaced of a mam being violently removed from a flight from Chicago to Louisville, US, that had been overbooked. The dreadful ordeal was all captured on camera by fellow passengers and soon took the web by storm – going viral almost instantaneously.
The United Airlines dragging incident (seen here) shows a man refusing to leave the plane and being dragged off by security. The airline previously announced that four people would have to give up their seats. With no eager volunteers, four people were chosen at random, one of whom was a doctor who needed to care for patients. You can see law enforcement removing the man from his seat, with the man later returning to the flight looking bloodied and disorientated.
With the internet being the internet, reactions were both outrageous, empathetic and damn-right hilarious. Here are 14 hilarious reactions to the United Airlines dragging incident.
