Have you guys viewed the disturbing video of a United Airline customer being violently dragged off an airplane? Users of Twitter and Facebook were outraged after watching the viral video of an Asian man getting his azz whooped for the crime of…well, he didn’t actually commit a crime. He felt that since he paid for a ticket, he should be able to fly on the flight he booked. Since the video has went viral, major media outlets have picked up the story and is drawing attention to the actions of United Airline staff when dealing with a paying customer who just wanted to get home to his family.
Apparently, there was a United employee who needed a seat on the plane, and the paying customer was told that he needed to kick rocks and get his azz off. Usually, airlines offer passengers special accommodations when they overbook the flight. I’ve witnessed an airline give a passenger a $1000 stipend and a free hotel room in order for the passengers to voluntarily give up their seat on a plane. It seems that the staff at United were like “hell knaw, we just gonna pick an older, Asian gentleman to beat down so our employee can have a seat.” What’s really disturbing is how they handled the situation. Airlines regularly overbook, but they also offer generous compensation for the inconvenience of being delayed. United said “not today bytch.” Instead of presenting passengers with an offer they could not refuse, the airline instructed officers to forcibly remove the older gentlemen from his seat. My heart dropped when I saw the man bleeding from his nose. During the violent removal, the passenger’s face hit the arm rest. It also appeared as though he may have experienced extreme shock because he started rambling saying, “they trying to kill me.” This is so heart breaking. I tear up every time I see this video.
Although there were people outraged by this incident, there were some individuals who blamed the passenger for not cooperating with law enforcement. I have to admit, I’ve posted a few Facebook and Twitter comments responding to insensitive idiots who thought it plausible for an airline to use physical force to remove a passenger when he was not breaking any laws. There was one individual who said, “well, if you don’t follow instructions from law enforcement, what do you expect to happen?” Its safe to assume that I did not respond in a very mature manner. My comment included labeling this person an insensitive rabid dog who should be put out of his misery because only a miserable, pitiful, and unhappy individual couldn’t see how this situation was mismanaged.
Today, after United Airlines was dragged for the horrific piece of shyt they are, their stocks dropped significantly, and rightly so. You can’t treat people like shyt and think there won’t be public outrage by posting the evidence on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube. You can no longer act a damn fool without some random person catching it on video.
I am boycotting United Airlines and will NEVER fly with them again. Since we are on the topic of shytyness, I can not stand their flight attendants. I understand that their job is to ensure that the passengers follow their safety instructions, but why do United flight attendants have such horrible attitudes? During one flight, I forgot to put on my seat belt, and this stank azz flight attendant got an attitude and stankedly told me to buckle up. I understand that I forgot, but bytch do you have to talk to me like I fcked your boyfriend and got pregnant? Never again. Fck United!
