A video posted to social media showing security guards violently removing a passenger from a United Airlines flight in the US have sparked outrage.

The incident took place on Sunday, before the departure of Flight 3411 from Chicago's O'Hare Airport to Louisville.

Several clips posted online by fellow passengers show the officers forcibly removing the man by pulling him out of his seat and dragging him by his arms down the aircraft's aisle.

Passengers said the man, who can be heard screaming, was injured as he was being dragged off, with blood coming out of his mouth.

Passengers said on social media that United had overbooked the flight and wanted four passengers to give up their seats to make way for airline employees.

When no one volunteered, four passengers were selected and asked to leave.

The man in the video, who has been identified to be an Asian who was one of the four, has said that he was a doctor and needed to see patients the next day.

The incident caused an outcry on social media, with some calling for a United Airlines boycott, while many pointed out that it was an Asian man who was the victim of the violent removal.

Some also expressed outrage that other passengers did not stop the officers from abusing him.

Checkout for the disturbing video below.
