Adam Saleh along with is friend kicked out off a plane for speaking Arabic
Language is still a barrier!
2016 came to an end and we are heading towards 2017, but still we people have not got over from stereotypes that still prevail in this world. A Yemeni-American YouTube star from New York, Adam Saleh, called for a boycott of Delta Airlines after charging he was removed from one of its flights for speaking Arabic.
On the other hand, Delta is giving clarification that star was asked to leave the London to New York flight because of an unspecified “disturbance.” “We spoke a different language on the plane, and now we’re getting kicked out,” the 23-year-old prankster, who has more than 2.2 million YouTubefollowers, said in a video filmed as the incident unfolded, and posted on the social networking site Twitter.
Saleh said that he was conversing with his mom on the phone when fellow passengers complained, and he was told to leave.

What does video depicts?
Video is clearly depicting that YouTube star is saying, “You guys are racists. I spoke a different language and you say you feel uncomfortable! I can’t believe my eyes. We spoke a different language and now there are six white people against us bearded men.”
Well, several passengers could be clearly seen rising their voice in support of Saleh with one calling out the airline staff in protest, but others are waiving their hands and saying Good bye. After an hours-long delay involving more security checks, Saleh said he was finally able to board a flight to New York with a different airline – and would head straight to see his lawyer.
Well, after posting this controversial video with hardcore words Saleh’s video had been retweeted more than 200,000 times, and the hashtag #BoycottDelta – which he included in a subsequent tweet – has become trending in Twitter.In a statement on the incident, the airline said it was investigating allegations of discrimination.
Who is Saleh?
If you don’t know him but still feel empathetic to him then you must first know who is he and why he is known as YouTube star. Saleh is known for comic YouTubevideos, including one showing him purportedly smuggling himself aboard an Australian commercial flight in a suitcase.
