Jimmy Kimmel used his monologue Monday night to roast United Airlines for the disturbing treatment of a passenger who was forcibly removed from an overbooked flight.
The late-night comedian recounted the Sunday incident aboard UA Express Flight 3411 for his audience, showing video of a male passenger, who claimed he was a doctor and needed to get home to see his patients, getting dragged off the plane by Chicago police. United CEO's response only made the situation worse.
"That is such sanitized, say-nothing, take-no responsibility corporate BS speak," Kimmel said. "I don't know how the guy who sent this tweet didn't vomit when he typed it out."
Her is United CEO Oscar Munoz's apology shared on Twitter: "This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened."
Kimmel got a kick out of the use of the term "re-accommodate" and joked, "This is like when we re-accommodated El Chapo out of Mexico."
The comedian even went as far as to create a spoof ad (above) for the airline company, featuring the kind voice of an attractive flight attendant telling customers "we'll drag your ass off the plane."
"We're United Airlines. You do what we say, when we say, and there won't be a problem, capiche?" the flight attendant said. "If we say you fly, you fly. If not, tough shit. Give us a problem, and we'll drag your ass off the plane. And if you resist, we'll beat you so badly you'll be using your own face as a flotation device."
"United Airlines. F--k you," the fake ad concluded.
