Joe Thomas blasts United Airlines about needing to ‘re-accomodate’ customers

Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas, like many of us, was appalled at the way United Airlines treated a customer who refused to give up his seat for one of the company’s employees over the weekend.

In case you aren’t aware of what happened, United asked people on a flight if they would give up their seats in exchange for money, a hotel stay and another ticket. After customers refused $400, United reportedly upped its offer to $800. Still, nobody was willing to give up their seats.

At this point, a man was forcibly removed by security in violent fashion.

This man ended up showing back up on the airplane somehow, looking disoriented and with blood on his face.

In the wake of this unbelievable event, United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz sent out a statement in which he called the event “unfortunate” and apologized for “having to re-accomodate these customer.”

Thomas didn’t take this very well and expressed his displeasure with the apology.

Well put, sir. Well put indeed.
