Shares of United Continental fell by 2 percent Tuesday as outrage over Dr. David Dao of Kentucky being dragged off an overbooked flight finally caught up to the stock. The shares were among the worst performers in the S&P 500.
The airline's stock, however, climbed nearly 1 percent Monday, not reacting much initially to the internet's response.

Munoz doubled down in the letter to employees, saying those involved "followed established procedures." He called the passenger "disruptive and belligerent." In one of the videos, the passenger said he was a doctor and had to return home to treat patients on Monday.
