BEIJING  A day after the forced removal of a passenger from a United Airlines flight provoked a social media furor in the United States, a similar outcry followed in China, after state-run news outlets here described the man as being of Chinese descent.

.

Long before the mans name was widely known, another passenger on the flight on Sunday said that he had complained of being singled out because he was Chinese. The passenger, Dr. David Dao, was later identified publicly by his lawyers.

.

By Wednesday morning, the hashtag United forcibly removes passenger from plane was the most popular topic on Weibo, Chinas equivalent of Twitter, garnering more than 550 million views and more than 240,000 comments. Many Chinese social media users accused United of racism, while others called for a boycott.

.

The outrage was furious and sustained over the passengers being dragged from his seat by security officers after refusing to be bumped from an overbooked flight from Chicago to Louisville, Ky.

.

The episode was prominently displayed across the Chinese news media on Tuesday. CCTV, the state broadcaster, showed photographs of the passengers bloodied face above the word Savage!

.

Peoples Daily, the ruling Communist Partys flagship newspaper, scolded United for initially failing to condemn the mans treatment.

The controversy threatened to hurt Uniteds revenue in China, where the airline began flying in 1986 and has steadily built a loyal customer base. As of last May, United had 96 departures a week to cities in mainland China and Hong Kong.

The Chinese news media often highlights episodes of violence and racism directed at people of Chinese descent overseas as evidence of what it considers the hypocrisy of Western democracies on human rights issues.

.

Some of the online discussions took on political overtones, with commentators saying the incident exposed deeper problems in American society. Where are the human rights the democratic countries have been advocating? a Weibo user wrote.

.

Others said the episode showed that people of Chinese descent in the United States faced rampant discrimination.

.

In the United States, Asians are often discriminated against, one Weibo user wrote. If it were a Muslim or black person, they wouldnt have acted this way.

.

Zhang Zishi, a student from the coastal province of Shandong who lives in Britain, started a petition on the website of the White House calling for a federal investigation into the case, using the hashtag #ChineseLivesMatters. By Tuesday evening the petition had exceeded its goal of attaining 100,000 signatures.
