Jimmy Kimmel Goes After United Airlines In Hilarious Safety Video Spoof
United Airlines was all over the news on Monday after a video went viral on social media showing a passenger being forcibly removed from one of their “overbooked” flights.
Jimmy Kimmel roasted the airline company for their handling of the incident and capped it off with a safety video spoof that didn’t hold back one bit.
“We’re United Airlines. You do what we say, when we say, and there won’t be a problem, capiche? If we say, ‘You fly,’ you fly. If not, tough s–t,” the flight attendant says in the United spoof. “Give us a problem and we’ll drag your ass off the plane, and if you resist, we’ll beat you so badly you’ll be using your own face as a flotation device. United Airlines: F–k You.”
The late-night show host said the worst part of the whole situation was how United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz handled the situation. (RELATED: United CEO Issues Dumpster Fire Apology For Beating Up Random Guy And Kicking Him Off A Flight)
“This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United,” Munoz said in a statement released on Twitter “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 to him and further address and resolve this situation,” the statement read.
“He said ‘re-accomodate.’ This is like when we re-accommodated El Chapo in Mexico,” Kimmel reacted. “That is such sanitized, say nothing, take no responsibility corporate B.S. speak. I don’t know how the guy who sent that tweet didn’t vomit when he typed it out.”
Kimmel failed to mention that PR Week just recently named Munoz its “Communicator of the Year” for 2017. Had he known he probably would have criticized the United CEO even further.
