YOUTUBE star Adam Saleh claims he was kicked off a plane after he spoke Arabic to his friend and mother. The 23-year-old vlogger and actor posted a video as he was reportedly being escorted from the Delta flight after complaints had been made. He claimed Delta Airlines staff escorted him off the flight on December 21 – and filmed the incident. In the video, he says,
I cannot believe my eyes. I spoke a word and you said you feel uncomfortable. Why are you guys doing that? Just because I spoke a different language.
See the clip.
He also tweeted about the situation, giving updates to his followers.
In a statement, Delta responded with the following:
Two customers were removed from this flight and later rebooked after a disturbance in the cabin resulted in more than 20 customers expressing their discomfort. We’re conducting a full review to understand what transpired. We are taking allegations of discrimination very seriously; our culture requires treating others with respect.
