Thinking of taking a trip somewhere? Then you might not want to fly United Airlines. Not unless you want to get your ass kicked that is. Because as you might already be aware, the airline is currently weathering a storm of controversy after disturbing video footage emerged of them violently removing a man from an overbooked flight from Chicago to Louisville, US.

The video shows the man refusing to disembark the aircraft after United announced that four people had to give up their seats. Despite declaring that he was a doctor who had patients to attend to, the airline had law enforcement wrestle the man from his seat before dragging him bruised and bloodied off the plane. Since then, the internet has been ruthlessly trolling United Airlines with funny tweets and memes. Scroll down to see some of our favorites, and feel free to add to the list!

For a Fact, Emirates is the best airlines to have an Overbooking situation in. The either upgrade you to Business :) or they give you free tickets (with return) to your favorite destination!! It happened to a really lucky aunt of mine - thrice!!

I am very very disappointed at how i was treated on the phone today.......by United Airlines. After seeing a video clip on the news i phoned them up, and i was polite and courteous, and asked if i could please get a price on how much it would cost to get my brother in law beaten up and dragged screaming off a plane. I even tried to explain to them that he was an obnoxious drunk and it would be best to get him early . I received very poor service in my opinion, so i shall not deal with them any further

Literally, the policy...you "volunteer" by either walking off or being dragged out and beaten so someone they deem more important like staff can have that seat. They were not overbooked because paying customers were in their seats. Just shows that you are truly second class when you pay for second class and anything can happen to you.
