Did this RuPaul’s Drag Race star go too far with this United Airlines joke?

Trixie Mattel under fire for her United Airlines tweet

Everyone is talking about the explosive video that saw United Airlines forcibly remove a doctor from a plane.

A video saw a passenger violently removed from security officials at O’Hare international airport in Chicago in Sunday.

The doctor was seen bleeding, saying: ‘I want to die.’ He also told flight officials he was due for a hospital shift.

United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz has said: ‘This is an upsetting event to all of us here at United. I apologize for having to reaccommodate these customers. Our team is moving with a sense of urgency to work with the authorities and conduct our own detailed review of what happened.’

The statement to media has seen a widespread condemnation of the company.

And with that comes jokes.

Trixie Mattell, from season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race, appeared to side with the airline with her tweet.

This tweet was criticized as misjudged.

Kim Chi, season 8 and friend to Trixie, said it was in ‘bad taste’.

Others also thought Trixie should delete the tweet.

However, others also defended Trixie’s dark humor.

Trixie has yet to respond to the criticism. We have contacted her representation.
