An American social media celebrity says he was removed from a New York-bound plane in London with a friend after speaking Arabic on the aircraft.
Adam Saleh posted video of the incident on Wednesday to his Twitter feed.
“Delta airlines kicked us out for speaking Arabic to my mom on a plane,” Saleh tweeted.
By the time of publishing, a recorded clip he posted had been shared more than 300,000 times.
“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 be seen saying: “I spoke a word [of Arabic], and you said you feel uncomfortable?”
Saleh had been due to fly from London to New York with his friend Slim Albaher.
Saleh said that they were later placed on another flight, having been re-checked by security.
Saleh is a YouTube star, with more than 1.5 million subscribers. Many of his videos feature him carrying out practical jokes.
