Not all bad publicity is good publicity… just ask United Airlines.

The $22 billion-dollar company was blasted on social media after video surfaced of a passenger who was physically dragged off a plane because it was overbooked. One of the security officers involved in the incident was placed on leave.

Witnesses on United Flight 3411 said the airline asked for volunteers to leave because additional flight crew needed to get to Louisville.

The man — who ended up being dragged off the plane after getting knocked out and bleeding from his mouth — told the staff that he was a doctor and had to return home to his patients.

But they didn’t care. It’s the second time in less than a month that United was criticized for its treatment of passengers.

Here’s how social media reacted to the news in what’s become an absolute public relations nightmare for United Airlines.
