(Before It's News)

Monday’s “OMG” social media news story was about security personnel dragging a passenger off a United Airlines flight in Chicago. The passenger, Dr. David Dao, refused to leave the plane when asked and was violently removed by aviation police.

Tuesday’s “OMG” story is the micro-analysis of Dr. Dao’s life by multiple newspapers and online media outlets. Apparently that’s okay, because he’s now some type of celebrity? Please.

From TMZ:

As for the other coverage, the message all of us regular people should hear loud and clear is – do not do anything remotely controversial that might end up on social media, or you might get the Dao treatment.
