The Twitterati never miss a moment to troll anyone who is making headlines, especially when they’re making news for notorious reasons.
The leaked footage surfaced on internet showing the brutality of United Airlines’ staff in removal of their passenger to accommodate their own official, evoked several responses over the social media.
Renowned for their hilarious offenses, the Twitterati took their frustration out on the airlines by trolling and roasting the company online.
Twitter also went to the point of changing the company’s tagline and motto. The trending topic on Twitter in U.S. was #NewUnitedAirlinesMottos, with tweeple suggesting funny new slogans such as “United Airlines: We put the ‘hospital’ in ‘hospitality’!”
We care so much, it hurts #newunitedairlinesmottos
