Warning, we have no confirmation of this story other than a Wednesday, 6:20 AM Twit by YouTube personality Adam Saleh (1.6 million followers), the subject and the reporter of this story, who wants the world to know he and his companions were making their fellow passengers uncomfortable when they chatted among themselves in Arabic.

The passengers alerted the London to NYC Delta Airlines flight attendants and the other Arabic speaker were told to deplane at once. According to UK media, they have not been charged with anything and were given a seat on another flight to New York.

Speaking of New York, in his video monologue, Saleh complains that he can’t believe this is happening in 2016. It should be noted that the rest of us have been in that state of astonishment since the second week in September, 2001.

Delta Airlines released a statement saying: “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.”
