YouTube sensation kicked off Delta flight for 'speaking Arabic'

SHARE:

Delta Air Lines Inc removed YouTube sensation Adam Saleh and his friend from a plane at London’s Heathrow Airport before takeoff on Wednesday.


Saleh accused the airline of acting on passenger complaints that he had been speaking on a phone in Arabic.


Saleh, a Muslim American and YouTube personality, has posted what he calls “experiment” videos in the past showing him speaking Arabic on planes.

On Wednesday, Saleh posted a video to his verified Twitter account, followed by 315,000 users, showing himself and a second passenger being escorted off of the flight.


“We’re getting kicked out because we spoke a different language… Six white people against us bearded men,” he said from the plane’s cabin.





Several passengers can be seen heckling him and waving goodbye as he leaves the aircraft. It was not immediately clear what took place before the recording began.








In a statement after Delta Flight 1 landed in New York, Delta said the man, Adam Saleh, and the other passenger were removed because they “sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior, including shouting.” The airline said its information was based on statements collected from the flight crew and other passengers.


“What is paramount to Delta is the safety and comfort of our passengers and employees. It is clear these individuals sought to violate that priority,” the Delta statement said.

Airlines have in recent months battled negative publicity over incidents in which Muslim passengers were removed from flights.

In November, a supporter of US President-elect Donald Trump was allowed to stay on a domestic US flight after going on an expletive-filled rant. He was later banned for life from Delta flights.
