An overbooked flight and a passenger who refused to get off the plane turned into a scary situation on Sunday.

A video posted to Twitter shows a man screaming and being dragged off an overbooked United Airlines flight.

According to Twitter, "The ordeal occurred after volunteers were asked to give up their seats to accommodate crew members in the overbooked flight."

United on Twitter responded why they had to remove the passenger.

If removing a passenger forcibly is a bit strange, it gets even more weird when you find this is the reason why.

This comes only two weeks after a public relations nightmare due to teens wearing leggings on United flights.
