Jimmy Kimmel didn't hold back any punches when he addressed the video depicting an United Airlines passenger being dragged off a flight that was overbooked.

"I’m glad none of you were yanked off the plane," the late-night host told his audience during his opening monologue on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live. Playing the video of the incident, Kimmel quipped, "That’s how my mother used to get me out of bed to go to school in the morning."

The 49-year-old comedian also called out the statement released by the CEO of United in response to the commotion, where he apologized for "having to re-accommodate these customers."

Kimmel joked, "Just like we re-accommodated El Chapo out of Mexico."

He then cut to a fake ad that mocked airline safety videos, and suggested that United start playing it before flights. “We’re United Airlines. You do what we say, when we say, and there won’t be a problem, capiche?,” a smiling flight attendant says. “If we say you fly, you fly. If not, tough s**t. Give us a problem and we’ll drag your a** off the plane, and if you resist, we’ll beat you so badly you’ll be using your own face as a flotation device.”

The ad concludes with the flight attendant offering up a new slogan for the airline. "United: F**k you," she declares.
