Man Claims He Was Kicked Off A Flight For Speaking Arabic
A Youtube prankster has labelled Delta airlines 'racist' after he claims he was kicked off a flight after speaking in Arabic.
Adam Saleh made headlines last week for falsely claiming he squeezed into a tiny suitcase and illegally flew in the baggage hold on a Tigerair flight from Melbourne to Sydney.
Now the notorious prankster has posted a video of his experience inside the Delta aircraft claiming he was booted from the place after speaking on the phone to his mother in Arabic.
“You guys are racists. I cannot believe my eyes. I spoke a word [in] a different language and you people feel uncomfortable? Are you serious? I’m about to cry right now,” Saleh told his 2.2 million subscribers.

The videos shows passengers calling for the Youtuber to stay on the plane, while others wave as he’s escorted off.
While it's unclear where exactly the incident took place, his social media accounts indicate hew as supposed to be flying out from Australia to New York.
In a statement, Delta airlines said: “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,"
