United Airlines has received much heat after dragging a doctor off a flight that they overbooked. After offering incentives for people to give up a seat, they airline randomly chose 4 seats to be given up, one being the doctor’s. He tried to explain that he needed to be at the hospital in the morning for patients, but that did not stop the roughing up tat he received.

People are extremely upset with United, and for good reason! Especially once they found out that the seats forcibly taken from paying passengers were given to United Airlines employees.

@MyDaughtersArmy I wish every person stood up and left that plane. That could have been any of us.

Now Jimmy Kimmel has jumped aboard and made a United Airlines skit. It does contain language, but it’s awesome watching him rip the airlines a new one!
“We’re United Airlines. You do what we say when we say, and there won’t be a problem,” a “flight attendant” stated in the spoof. “If we say you fly, you fly. If not, tough (expletive). Give us a problem, and we’ll drag your (expletive) off the plane. And if you do this, we’ll beat you so badly you’ll be using your own face as a flotation device. United Airlines: (expletive) you.”
