Trumpmerica Continues: YouTube Star Says He Was Kicked Off Delta Flight For Speaking Arabic To His Mom — Watch The Awful Video!

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:

“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.”

On Twitter, Saleh added that he was brought to the police and checked multiple times before allowed on another flight to New York City. He plans on taking legal action against the airline.

As Adam says in the video, it’s scary to think this is all happening in 2016 — but based on the current political climate, we have a feeling this won’t be the last time innocent passengers are berated for speaking a different language.
