Jimmy Kimmel Takes Down United Airlines With Brilliant Rant And Spoof

Leave it to Jimmy Kimmel to deliver a gloves-off, what-the-fuck routine about the recent United Airlines debacle that was both brilliantly funny and viciously victorious, like the only kid in school who can stand up to a bully. And oh what a bully United Airlines turned out to be, with the recent video of a man being dragged off of a plane after refusing to surrender his seat for an overbooked flight. (To see the actual, horrifying video, go here.)

“It’s like how we ‘reaccommodated’ El Chapo out of Mexico,” Kimmel joked, referring to the United Airlines CEO’s failed attempt at an apology after the incident, a response so obnoxiously tone-deaf, it managed to take the attention away from Pepsi. “Such, sanitized, say-nothing, take-no-responsibility, corporate B.S. speak.”

Kimmel then introduced a genius parody United video, with a smiling flight attendant announcing their new motto: “United Airlines. Fuck You.”

 

Then the always rant-ready Twitter delivered with the hashtag #NewUnitedAirlinesMottos:
