In Donald Trump's America, is anyone surprised you can get thrown off an airplane just for speaking to your mother in Arabic?
On Wednesday, YouTube star Adam Saleh — who has over 1.6 million subscribers on his channel — shared a video on his Twitter that showed him being escorted off his Delta Airlines flight along with his friend Slim.

In the video, a clearly upset Saleh is seen standing in the aisle in front of a Delta staff member, saying to fellow passengers:
"Are you serious? I'm about to cry right now. You guys are racists. I cannot believe it. Because we said a word in a different language? And it's six white people against us bearded men?"
As Saleh addresses the plane, several (white) passengers in the back sarcastically bid him farewell — with one even seemingly flipping him the bird as he's taken off the plane.
Thankfully, not every passenger was a xenophobic d*ckhead — as a few supportive passengers tell Delta employees their actions were "upsetting."
Later on, the YouTube prankster posted a Periscope video in the airport terminal, explaining that he "was speaking to my mom in Arabic, then I spoke to Slim in Arabic, and they kicked us out."
Delta said they were conducting a full review of the incident, saying in a statement:
