Currently scraping the bottom of the branding reputation barrel, American legacy air carrier United Airlines has added to it's summer of #fail by sending a dog and its master to two different destinations.
Traveling together on July 14 from Missouri to Burbank, California, Los Angeles-based rapper ScHoolboy Q and his dog, Yeeerndamean, were separated by United Airlines ground workers during a layover in Denver, Colorado, according to The Independent, and sent in two different directions.
The Interscope-affiliated rapper quickly took to Twitter to vent his dismay, tweeting: "U PUT MY DOG ON THE WRONG FLIGHT????"
The major label artist then took his complaint to CNN, texting the media company that he "plan[s] on suing," and observing that his "little dog been moving around since the A.M."

The airline later responded to CNN with a blanket corporate statement, claiming that they had "reached out to our customer and sincerely apologise for this mistake and are providing a refund."
It is not known whether Yeeerndamean has finally been reunited with his pop star master.
In the past, ScHoolboy Q has cited his pets in his songs, asserting in the track Take The Pain Away that the "only thing I got is my girl and my dogs."
In recent months United Airlines has seen engines catch on fire during flights, seats reserved for children sold to other passengers, and — most notoriously — a doctor with a confirmed reservation get beaten and dragged off a flight because the airline sought to give an employee his seat.
