After video emerged of a passenger being forcibly removed from United Airlines Flight 3411 on Sunday, celebrities took to social media to express their outrage and disgust at United for their inhumane behavior.
The trouble began when the flight was set to take off and United requested four passengers to forgo their trip in exchange for compensation due to overbooking. After no one volunteered to exit the flight, United randomly generated names of four passengers who were asked to get off.
When one male passenger refused, claiming he was a doctor who needed to get to his destination to take care of his patients, Chicago police came on board and forcibly removed him from his seat. The passenger, disoriented and bleeding, was dragged off the floor of the plane.
The disturbing video was shared numerous times on Twitter and despite United issuing an apology, Hollywood has unleashed on the airline over the incident.
