United Airlines Forcibly Removes Passenger From Flight: All the Memes You Need to See

United Airlines is taking a beating on social media following a disturbing video showing an Asian doctor named David Dao being violently removed from a plane from Chicago to Louisville before takeoff at O’Hare International Airport. Dao is a doctor, father of five and a grandfather. Four of his five children are doctors and his wife, Teresa, is a pediatrician. He is a native of Saigon, Vietnam, but lives in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Dao's ethnicity has sparked speculation across the Asian world, particularly China, that it may have been a contributing factor to his removal from United Airlines flight 3411. According to the Washington Post, it was originally rumored that Dao was Chinese, not Vietnamese. The rumor spread like wildfire across Chinese social media and may have grave repercussions for United's bottom line. United often bills itself as the top American carrier to China and vice versa.
