Dear #united, I had to "re-accommodate" someone once https://t.co/MP3ZJDv85m

On Sunday, a doctor who was traveling on United Airlines was dragged off an overbooked flight, and video of the scene went viral Monday. CEO Oscar Munoz apologized for the incident:

Statement from @United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz: “I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers.” That's one way of putting it. https://t.co/Jq7VGoYv8Q

Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas chimed in.

The 32-year-old hogmolly seemed to take issue with Munoz's use of the term "re-accommodate."

Thomas used the picture he posted, of himself driving Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Farrior into the ground, to mirror the passenger's removal from the plane.
