United Forcibly Dragged an Asian Doctor Off a Flight: Demand the CEO Step Down!
United overbooked a flight from Chicago to Lousiville and instead of upping the dollar amount on the vouchers to get people to volunteer to take another flight, they "randomly" selected passengers and made them get off. When they chose a doctor who needed to be on that flight so he could see patients the next day, he refused. Instead of requesting someone else to switch flights, United called Chicago PD and the man was dragged off the flight!Sign PetitionSign Petition
United could not have handled this situation any worse. Demand United's CEO Oscar Munoz step down for this injustice!
Police officers violently dragged a "randomly" selected person of color past countless white passengers, despite the doctor's obligations to his patients. Even worse, United was just trying to make room on the flight for their own employees. They weren't even trying to accomodate other paying customers, they were covering their own poor planning!
In the videos of the incident, you can hear other passengers telling them to stop. Then the police wrench the man out of his seat and literally drag him down the aisle. This is just a doctor trying to get to his patients and United treated him this way. It's a horrifying mistreatment and abuse and we can't let them get away with it!
