Everyone is trolling United for their horrible passenger treatment

JAKARTA: When things get bad and inexplicable, we turn to humor and the Internet for justice.

Take a look at how everyone is making fun of United Airlines since they resorted to dragging and physically assaulting a passenger off an overbooked flight and the tone-deaf apology the CEO gave for it.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel used it as material for his opening monologue in his recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“Can you imagine if this happened in any other industry?” asks Kimmel. “…United didn’t even admit they did anything wrong,” he says as he introduces a spoof ad of United Airlines that features a flight attendant that’s wearing  knuckle rings.

Speaking of ads, some Redditors pointed out how other airlines can use the incident to their own advantage. – The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network
