‘Board as a doctor, leave as a patient’: Internet crushes airline with #NewUnitedAirlinesMottos
The doctor attacked and forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight has gained international attention and sent the airline’s stock into a freefall as passengers everywhere call for a boycott.
Late-night comedians mocked the airlines Monday night and passengers lined up to speak on cable news about the brutality. But it was a trending hashtag that brought out the hostility Americans feel toward the company and its seemingly tone-deaf CEO.

Finally, a lesson for everyone:
This all could've been avoided, if only that doctor had offered the policeman a Pepsi.
