Adam Saleh

Delta Airlines issued a followup statement justifying kicking Youtube prankster Adam Saleh and a friend off a flight in London.

Saleh is a 23-year-old American who was born to Yemeni parents.

Saleh uploaded a cell phone video to Twitter.com, complaining loudly that he was being escorted off the plane for speaking in Arabic to his mom on the phone.

But other passengers on the flight — including a friend of former CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien — say Saleh was not talking to his mother on the phone prior to getting the boot.

O’Brien says her friend told her Saleh caused a disruption on the plane, including shouting loudly, which freaked out the passengers who were already on edge due to deadly terrorist acts in Europe.

O’Brien said that her source told her the Delta flight attendants were informed that Saleh was a YouTube prankster.

She tweeted: “A LOT still unclear. But apparently woman sitting near my friend tipped off flight attendants he was a youtube star known for pranks.”

After promising to investigate the incident, Delta released a statement Wednesday night justifying Saleh’s removal from the plane.

“Based on the information collected to date, it appears the customers who were removed sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior, including shouting. This type of conduct is not welcome on any Delta flight.”

Saleh’s previous pranks on commercial airliners include recording Youtube videos titled “Counting down in Arabic on a plane experiment” and “Arabs on a plane!,” in which he and a friend talk loudly in Arabic while recording passengers’ reactions.

    Good, I didn’t believe this for one minute. He out to be ashamed of himself for pulling this stunt on an airplane. People don’t play when it comes to air travel and he should have been arrested. Some of these people trying to get home to their loved ones, aint nobody got time for a youtube prankster to be pulling stunts for likes on youtube smh!

  • SG

    He’s cute. Thats all I’ve got.

  • CapricornIce

    He’s a cute terrorist.

  • digital_femme

    This is the only place where I’ve seen this story posted for some reason. Makes me think of a stunt Borat would pull. And yes, he is cute.

  • klwbaby

    Wow, some people are really desperate for attention…

  • MyNameIs

    But wasn’t there a white guy that was yelling and….nvm.
    That’s why I say it’s still F*ck Delta at the end of the day!

  • MyNameIs

    I don’t agree with what he did but Delta’s statement is BS.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    And because he’s “cute,” black women in particular believe his lies.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I was wondering why this is even worth reporting. Then I recall this is a pro-Trump blog. Stories will be reflecting of the Trump agenda: anti-Muslim, “make America great again,” pro-racism/white “supremacy,” etc.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    He was not only revealed as being a YouTube prankster, he is also noted for making racist/anti-Black comments on the Net. With that said, I’m not sure Black women are believing anything about him, but rather commenting based on their opinions of his physical appearance.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It’s worth reporting because he terrorized an entire plane for Youtube views and money. Yes, the passengers applauded, because they were relieved to see the troublemakers being escorted off the plane. As Jamie said, nobody has time for Youtube pranksters pulling stunts on planes for attention.

  • sealsaa

    Precisely why I analyze these post-Trump discrimination reports on a case by case basis. Half-truths and one-sided stories have been rampant, and take away from legitimate cases of discrimination.

  • Glenda Johnson

    His eyebrows are perfectly tweezed…not attractive at all to this black woman and he’s also an idiot/drama queen for attention whoring his arse right off that Delta flight, I would have Bye’d his butt too.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and a host of other celebs are pulling their money from Wells Fargo because of Wells Fargo’s support of the Dakota Access Pipeline. This story is a breaking news story that further reveals the corruption taking place at Wells Fargo. You felt compelled to report about a rapper who claimed WF lied and said he tried to steal money from them, which was a regional story. Why not report about something this major?

    YouTubers are always stunting for money. So are bloggers. Apparently, that’s the American way.

    How do u know it was a Prank? Delta issued a statement because they were pressed. What if they were screaming and yelling because they felt the stewardess picked on them for speaking Arabic, And he just so happens to be a YouTube prankster.

  • the guest

    Why and how is Wells Fargo still in operation? The whole Wells Fargo institution needs to be shut down.

  • Vonn

    I hope they ban him for life.

  • pure_rachet

    Whelp my original comment on his looks didn’t make it…

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    That’s a slippery slope. If they ban him and he is able to prove what happened was authentic and not manufactured, Delta is going to be in a world of hurt. They got him another flight shortly after he was removed from the first flight, so they must not have considered him too much of a threat.

    The internet is fertilizer for fools.

  • pure_rachet

    Off topic.. I’m eating healthy for the rest of the year. Bren said his bowels were backed up so… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/65c5a1e400967d1d2e1e73d6e9c06f298a624215dd1b09af7f230c60b9b212ec.jpg

    He looks unclockable, right?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    The rest of the year?! The whole two weeks?!! ?

  • pure_rachet

    Omg yeah he’s cute though like Laith Ashley

  • pure_rachet

    Yes. I gained 40 lbs since may. I see nothing wrong with taking a 2 week break. Then back on my “high calorie eat everything diet”

  • pure_rachet

    Sandy need to do a medical minute on my expanding ass. I may have to email her.

  • pure_rachet

    I got the ?today a couple times. Like I care.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The flight attendants recognized him as a Youtube prankster. He is known for pulling pranks on planes. How many more pranks does he have to pull before they ban him?

  • Pam

    Even if this was real, it wasn’t “our” fight anyway…#imjustsayin #theydontreallycareaboutuseither #truthhurtsbutneedstobesaid

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They were causing a disturbance – and frightening the other passengers – before the flight attendants even noticed them.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    You’ll need to ask Delta. One false move and Delta will be up the river with a boat and no paddle. I’m not sure they want to take that chance.

  • Bee jaay Cee

    And money! He’s going to get more likes on his FB page and more hits on his YouTube account that means Ad revenue and mo money, mo money, mo money!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Speaking of loyal readers missing in action, MAN emailed me today. He said he tried to login but Disqus blocked him. Hopefully he will have better luck tomorrow. ? ?

  • pure_rachet

    LMAO we miss him. Matter of fact, I have a 2 for 1 Applebee’s coupon with his name on it. Sandy ain’t the only one in the giving spirit!!!

  • Jussjess25

    See this ass playin games and black people really be going through this. His stupid self shoulda been arrested

    Me too!!!!!! That’s not normal but I can’t justify how it happened but I haven’t been eating high calorie all the time idk wtf happened

  • pure_rachet

  • pure_rachet

    Girl I been tested for everything. Cancer, Lupus, Kidney shiz, Hormones, Hep, I hate to think it my 30’s creeping up.

  • Glenda Johnson

    Iol

  • CapricornIce

    This was reported by local news & GMA & the Today show so…..

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    This is NOT funny! I love that he originally tried to say the fight did it cuz they were/are racist…?

  • shun king

    This not something you play with them guys need to have some real charges on them and laugh about that.

  • sunni_daze

    It won’t be funny when he get capped in the ass. He should choose a new line of pranking.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Punk ass uses his heritage to try to make people flustered on a flight. And as confined as those seats are he got the nerve to be disruptive. He woulda been punched in the face if I was one of those passengers. If you flown before yall know the right before take off people get the jitters smh…

  • HIS4EVA

    cute?! where!? that is some shallow stuff to say. He looks crazy!

  • RespectSelf

    The only thing that is odd about this story is that there were two other men on the plan that didn’t think it was right that they were getting kicked off.

    So I’m lost to how if he was being so loud and disruptive that the two men who were like “this isn’t right” were completely unaware of his behavior.

  • ThisHarryHere

    He’s a prankster. He did that mess to get a reaction and he got one. He picked the wrong time to prank an airline. They should throw his ass in jail.

  • ThisHarryHere

    Right, they always want our help when something goes wrong for them but they side with the same people they needed help against when it comes time to defend us. FOH with that shiz.

    It’s gonna take them to sit next tona bitch like me to get the drill…im not with the bullshît on the plane

  • Willette Capers

    I hate to say it but it would take a lot for me to boycott Delta. They employee so many people of color from the ground up. Diversity is big to them. It’s not the company, its the individual. But I will say, I think this guy was pulling a stunt and it failed miserably.

    9/11 is a victory for him. These people have their babies on American soil for the benefits of our country yet they raise these bast@@@s to hate us and they do. He can joke about death because he doesn’t care. As far as he’s concerned, the more dead Americans, the better.

  • stanley

    lol White people jump on any cause. But Black people already knew about his racist “Hood” videos. We weren’t buying it from the start.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    LOL!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Me too and still no answers lol

  • Rob N. Lebron

    when was it illegal to be a youtube prankster? especially there was no proof that he did anything other than some random videos.

  • Queen B

    Bc they were probably friends lol

  • Rob N. Lebron

    There was no proof of this happening. Stop believing “friends” of CNN and think that they’re words are gospel.

  • FlyMiss

    I’m not sure how youtube views work… but is it possible that he’s actually benefiting from all this buzz? Because people now are going to his youtube page to see all his other videos. Free publicity right?

  • ihatethesebitches

    He’s a jerk
