According to the Mashable’s report, the internet is viciously trolling United Airlines right now.

This is an incident that isn’t likely to blow over in short order
It goes without saying, but United Airlines has an extremely serious PR crisis on its hands, and it has a lot of work to do if it has any hope of generating good will on the tail end. This is an incident that isn’t likely to blow over in short order, so expect plenty of apologies, re-apologies, investigations, clarifications, accusations, and ultimately a costly lawsuit that will make one man very, very wealthy.
United’s statement on the matter has thus far been that it’s continuing to investigate exactly what unfolded and why, though if any of the upper management has access to a Twitter or Facebook account, it really shouldn’t take very long to catch up.
