United Airlines sparked outrage around the world on Monday after videos of authorities forcibly dragging a passenger off a flight went viral online.


The flight in question had been overbooked, and when no one volunteered to give up their seats for a few United employees who needed to make connecting flights, airline personnel selected four passengers at random to be removed. When one of the chosen passengers — who claimed to be a doctor who needed to get to his patients — refused to give up his seat, he was forcibly dragged off the plane by authorities.

Ever since, hundreds of people have taken to social media to express their disgust over the incident, and to call for a boycott of the airline. On Twitter, many made it clear that they would not let United brush the incident under the rug — and started dragging the airline for violently dragging a passenger off the plane.

Here's just some of what people had to say.
