Yesterday, footage came out showing airline police dragging a paying customer from an overbooked United Airlines plane. His face was bloodied and the image soon took over Twitter, cable news, and this morning’s newspapers. CEO, Oscar Munoz, released a statement apologizing for that whole overbooking thing, then an internal letter to staff more or less blaming the man who was removed. Stocks plummeted today.

As is common these days, Twitter users have created a hashtag to make jokes about the situation:
