American social media celebrity Adam Saleh was removed from a plane in London en-route to New-York after speaking Arabic on the aircraft.

“Delta airlines kicked us out for speaking Arabic to my mom on a plane,” Saleh tweeted.

“We’re getting kicked out because we spoke a different language,” Adam Saleh says in the clip. “This is 2016. Delta airlines are kicking us out because we spoke a different language.”

Addressing one his fellow passengers, he can seen saying: “I spoke a word [of Arabic], and you said you feel uncomfortable?”

Saleh was due to fly from London to New York with his friend Slim Albaher, who was also removed.

However both Saleh and Albaher were placed on another flight after security re-checked them .

Saleh is a YouTube sensation, with around 1.5 million subscribers.


This is not the first time that Delta showed discriminatory behavior towards Muslims as back in August, a Muslim couple travelling from Paris to Cincinnati were removed after a member of staff complained about ‘feeling’ uncomfortable with them on board.

Also in August, British Muslim siblings were removed from an Easyjet plane travelling from London to Naples after fellow passengers accused them of being members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.
