The Plot Twist Involving Doctor Savagely Removed From United Airlines Flight Has Internet Buzzing

on

The internet has been up in arms since graphic videos of a 69-year-old man getting dragged off a United Airlines flight went viral on Monday.

The man later identified as Dr. David Dao, was asked to leave United Flight 3411 to Louisville due to overbooking after a computer chose him at random.

After refusing to get off the plane, security officers then grabbed Dr. Dao, causing him to hit his head on a metal armrest, before dramatically dragging him off the plane.

According to Time, United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz sent an email to employees claiming that the company did the right thing and called Dao “disruptive and belligerent.”

Munoz also claimed that Dao was treated politely [emphasis added]:

“This situation was unfortunately compounded when one of the passengers we politely asked to deplane refused and it became necessary to contact Chicago Aviation Security Officers to help.”

 

Now, new details are emerging….and this time against the doctor and his aaprent ‘dark past.’

 

 

According to sources,
In 2005, the doctor was charged for exchanging drug prescription for sex, resulting in 98 felony counts of “illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers,” according to TMZ.

He also received five years probation for six counts of illegally obtaining drugs.

Dr. Dao, who obtained a medical degree in his home country of Vietnam before moving to the U.S., was forced to surrender his medical license following the charges.

According to The Hollywood Life, the suspension was lifted in 2015, and he is now legally able to practice medicine at an outpatient facility one day a week,

Despite the shocking revelations about his past, many social media users are standing by doctor:

Dr. Dao has yet to speak out publicly about the United Airlines incident.

    His personal information and history doesn’t matter. It is not relevant to the situation. He was a lawful passenger with a valid ticket on a flight that the airline promised to provide in exchange for a price. The airline is at fault and nothing else matters. Customers should not be vilified to justify an action that was very wrong. I will never fly United Airlines again. Shame on anyone who tries to smear this man. He is a victim, not a public figure whose life should be on display.

    And just what does his past have to do with what happened. Not a damned thing.
