The Twitterverse is still furious with United Airlines, but the controversial episode on their flight last night has given way to all sorts of jokes and throwbacks to Kendall Jenner‘s Pepsi commercial.

The airline has come under fire due to video of a passenger being forcefully removed from one of their planes after they overbooked seats. United CEO Oscar Munoz has been receiving criticism after he responded to the incident by apologizing for “having to re-accommodate these customers.”
