The Internet Is Going to Town on Pepsi, United Jokes
Two big companies are in crisis mode and the public is loving it.
Both stories are examples of well-known brands struggling to win the respect of outraged consumers.
The good news for Pepsi is that people may be a little more focused on United, since it’s a newer scandal. Either way, the Twittersphere has gone wild with jokes, tying together both matters.
Moral of the story: when flying, make sure you kick back with a Coke on Delta or else you may be subject to some obvious yuk yuks online.

After losing my job as head of ad content for Pepsi, I have to say my 1st day running customer services for United Airlines has been lively.
