Man says Delta crew kicked him off plane for speaking Arabic

Judith QuinnДек 23, 2016

After being escorted off the plane, Saleh said that he spoke to police, was asked to go through security once again, and then boarded another flight on a different airline from London to NY that's slated to land later this evening - whereupon he intends to head straight to his lawyer's office.

"You guys are racists ..."

Several days ago, Tiger Airways challenged the credibility of Saleh's video of himself confined in a luggage for the duration of the one-hour flight. Saleh says he was simply speaking Arabic, but passengers say they felt uncomfortable.

The above video does show some passengers in the back of the plane showing signs of relief, shouting their goodbyes to a removed Saleh.

Adam Saleh, the Yemeni-American YouTube star was returning home to NY following a world tour when he was removed from the flight as the fellow passengers expressed discomfort over the presence of two American-Muslims. The airline said it is reviewing the incident.

Meanwhile Delta has said that it will investigate the incident and deal with any cases of discrimination very seriously.

According to Saleh, his expulsion from the plane was caused by the discomfort of passengers around him, which was later corroborated by Delta's statement.

The video prompted the hastag #BoycottDelta to trend.

In another, video Counting down in Arabic on a plane, Saleh asks a friend what he thinks would happen if they began counting down in Arabic.

Delta contacted the Metropolitan Police in London after removing the men from the flight, Scotland Yard told BuzzFeed News.

Saleh reported that he was kicked off by Delta because he was speaking in Arabic - his native language - while on the phone with his mother. "I can not believe my eyes", he says. "I spoke a word-a different language", says Saleh in the now viral video.

"Six white people against us bearded men", he continues.

He says other passengers complained and he was forced off of the plane.
