Celebs Slam United for Forcibly Removing Customer from Overbooked Flight

Celebrities are outraged after a man was forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight on Sunday night (April 9) because the company overbooked the plane.

The flight was taking off from Chicago, Ill. en route to Louisville, Kent. After the passengers boarded the flight, they were told that four volunteers were needed to give up their seats for United employees who had to be in Louisville on Monday.

When no one volunteered, United staff reportedly chose “volunteers” at random. A spokesman for United says that four people were chosen by the computer at random and three of them left the plane. When the fourth wouldn’t deplane, law enforcement was called.

Video from the flight shows the man being ripped out of his seat by officials while other passengers expressed their outrage. The man’s head allegedly hit the armrest and you can see blood dripping from his mouth while the cops drag him down the aisle of the plane by his arms.

The man who was forcibly removed from the plane identified himself as a doctor who needed to see patients on Monday.

“We followed the right procedures,” United spokesman Charlie Hobart told the Associated Press. “That plane had to depart. We wanted to get our customers to their destinations, and when one gentleman refused to get off the aircraft, we had to call the Chicago Police Department.”

“Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked,” the company said in an official statement. “After our team looked for volunteers, one customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate. We apologize for the overbook situation. Further details on the removed customer should be directed to authorities.”

Celebs React to United Airlines Not Allowing Leggings

United Airlines is getting a ton of backlash after allegedly not allowing two girls to fly because they were wearing leggings.

Passenger Shannon Watts tweeted about the incident, saying that the young passengers – one of whom was reportedly 10 years old – were forced to change before boarding a flight from Denver to Minneapolis.

“A @united gate agent isn’t letting girls in leggings get on flight from Denver to Minneapolis because spandex is not allowed?” she tweeted. “She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can’t board. Since when does @united police women’s clothing?”

The airline later tweeted, “The passengers this morning were United pass riders who were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel.”

Meanwhile, celebs like Chrissy Teigen and Patricia Arquette made their opinions on the matter known.

“I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf,” Chrissy tweeted.

Patricia wrote, “The highest standard of any culture corporate or not is to allow children to be children and to dress in accordance.”

She later added, “Turns out United bans leggings, torn jeans, and shorter shorts for free employee pass tickets. Still @united should update policy.”

William Shatner wrote, “😱👇🏻I’m going to start wearing leggings! Is that against the rules? 🤔#outdatedfashion #outdatedrules”

Celebrities React to NASA's New Planet Announcement - Read the Tweets

NASA Announced on Wednesday (February 22) that they recently found seven Earth-sized planets around a star outside of our solar system – and three are in a habitable zone.

The “habitable zone” is the area around the parent star where a planet could have liquid water.

This discovery is a big deal because it now sets a record for the greatest number of habitable planets found outside of a planet. All seven could potentially have liquid water, which is the key to our survival on other planets under the right atmospheric conditions.

“This discovery could be a significant piece in the puzzle of finding habitable environments, places that are conducive to life,” Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, said in a statement. “Answering the question ‘are we alone’ is a top science priority and finding so many planets like these for the first time in the habitable zone is a remarkable step forward toward that goal.” Watch a video below to find out more info…
