Calls for United Airlines boycott after removal of passenger

United Airlines is facing outrage and worldwide calls for a boycott after a mobile-phone video showing a passenger being forcibly removed from a flight went viral.

Social media users in China have expressed anger because the passenger who refused to give up his seat to an airline employee is of East Asian descent.

The CEO of United has had to issue two apologies for the incident, but that has not been enough to ease the global firestorm.
