The plane left Denver headed for Baltimore but the pilot made the decision to divert to Chicago and have the family removed. Once off the plane, the family was met by an FBI agent, two Customs and Border Security agents and two police officers.
It happened in February but the family says they still haven't gotten an apology from United. Here's what happened.
The parents were concerned about violent and sexual images they say were a part of the movie Alex Cross.
The off loaded passengers said because the screens dropped down from the ceiling they “could not shield our young children from this inappropriate content.'
When the parents asked if the movie could be stopped flight attendants told them no.
The mom and dad then asked for the pilots name and moments later the captain came on the overhead speaker and said security concerns were forcing the flight to be diverted to Chicago.
Once on the ground Chicago police boarded the plane and escorted the family off. FBI personnel interviewed the family and let them go.
