United Airlines employees fired after fight with ex-NFL player Brendan Langley

The United Airlines employee who was seen in a shocking video with a former NFL player at Newark Airport last week has been fired, The Post has learned.

“United Ground Express has informed us that the employee has been terminated,” an airline representative said in an email, referring to the company’s liaison subsidiary.

The viral footage showed the unidentified worker shoving former Denver Broncos cornerback Brendan Langley, 27, who then unleashed a series of punches that left the employee staggering around 11 a.m. Thursday.

The dazed, uniformed staff member then lines up his dukes and proceeds to punch the much larger athlete in the face.

“You saw that s-?” Langley yells at a bystander before delivering a punch that sends the worker to the ground and bleeding from the head.

The bloodied United worker stumbles back to his feet and confronts the football player again.

“Do you want anything else? He wants more!” Langley yells at him.

Langley, who is now a recipient of the Calgary Stampeders in Canada, was arrested for minor assault, the Port Authority told CNN.

The clip doesn’t reveal exactly who struck the first blow, but the now-former airline worker has not been charged with the riot, according to TMZ.

Another video of the incident shared online appeared to show Langley landing the first punch.

The fight is believed to have started when Langley used a wheelchair to transport his luggage – instead of a luggage cart, which cost $5, the Daily Mail reported.

Langley addressed the incident on Twitter and wrote, “You’re not off the hook…worst customer experience of my entire life in heaven!!!!” He then claimed in a tweet that he was attacked by the United worker and defended himself.

A United representative told The Post in an email Monday that the company “does not condone any form of violence at our airports or on board our aircraft and we are working with local authorities to further investigate the matter.”

Meanwhile, the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders said they are investigating the incident involving their player.

“The Calgary Stampeders Football Club is aware of the reports about Brendan Langley,” the Stampeders told CNN in a statement.

“The team is currently reviewing the matter for full details and will not comment further until the investigation is complete,” the team added.

The University of Georgia star was drafted in the third round of the 2017 draft and played 16 games in the NFL before joining Canada this year.

Langley quickly knocked out the United staffer as the fight began.
