An Arab-American YouTube star, Adam Saleh, was thrown off a Delta flight for speaking Arabic to his mother.

The New Yorker of Yemeni origins, who has over 1.6 million followers, taped the whole scenario and posted it on his accounts on Twitter and YouTube.

The 22-year old explains that the passengers on the flight heading from London to New York “expressing their discomfort” with hearing Arabic on a plane.

In April, A University of California, Berkeley student who came to the US as an Iraqi refugee says he was unfairly removed from a flight at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month because a fellow passenger was alarmed by an innocent conversation he was having in Arabic.
