— After a video of aviation police dragging a man off an overbooked United Airlines flight on Sunday went viral, the response was swift and sharp.
United CEO Oscar Munoz wrote in an internal email that he “emphatically” supports his employees and added that the man removed from the flight was “disruptive and belligerent.”
Coming off the heels of an incident in late March in which United kicked two girls off a flight for wearing leggings, it hasn’t been the best of times for the airline.
After the incident, Twitter users did what they do best -- use memes and sarcasm to make light of the situation.
