[UPDATE:] United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz just released the following statement:

“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened. We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly with him to address and resolve this situation.”

United Airlines is coming under fire this morning after a video surfaced of the company violently dragging a man off a plane.

United overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville on Sunday and needed some passengers to give up their seats. But when nobody volunteered to take the next flight out, officials took things into their own hands.

In cell phone footage that has hit the web, you see a group of men from the Department of Aviation police ferociously drag one man out of his seat and off the plane. Literally.

In the clip, you see security pull the man from the seat, over the armrest and into the aisle way. The man, who cut his lip during the disturbing altercation, was then dragged all the way to the from of the plane on his back.

At one point, you hear someone yell, “they busted his lip.” Another female passenger can be heard screaming, “oh my god, look what you did to him.”

The man was apparently selected at random to take another flight, but when he refused, the violent occurrence went down. According to reports, the passenger was a doctor who claimed he could not leave the flight because he had to be at the “hospital in the morning to see patients.”

A spokesperson for United told WHAS ABC in a statement: “Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked. 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.”

    it is a joke that United has yet apologized for this horrendous act. They seem to be taking the situation lightly and diverting the apology to there overbooking the flight. I myself am BOYCOTTING United Airlines. They expected a paying customer to give up their seat for employees. Why should the customers be harassed and forcibly made to be inconvenienced. BULLIES. The officers involved should be arrested and charged. United Airlines should be taught a lesson in their failures to accommodate paying passengers. Fear based NAZISM, worked the same way. I hope they find themselves in bankruptcy.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
