Adam Saleh

A Delta Airlines passenger who was kicked off a plane for panicking at least 20 other passengers is Adam Saleh, a Youtube star who is known for his pranks.

Saleh is a 23-year-old American who was born to Yemeni parents. He was on a flight to New York out of Heathrow Airport in London when he began speaking to his mother in Arabic.

Thousands of passengers have flown on Delta who also speak in Arabic. But this guy is a “Youtube star” who is known for his pranks. It probably wasn’t the content or the language in which he spoke — but the manner in which he spoke — which was intended to freak out the other passengers.

Saleh recorded a video accusing Delta of being “racist” and basically causing a scene on the plane.

Other Youtubers accuse Saleh of being a prankster who perpetrated other hoaxes in the past.

“I’m a bit skeptical. I don’t trust these Youtube pranksters,” says Youtuber Tim Pool, who referred to Saleh’s video as “fake news”.

He noted that Saleh once made a Youtube video called “Counting down in Arabic on a plane”.

Saleh has 1.6 million followers on his Youtube.com channel. He earns money from views on his Youtube videos. The more views, the more money he earns from advertising.

After Saleh’s video went viral, the airline issued a statement via Twitter.com.

The airline carrier confirmed in a statement that two passengers were escorted off the flight “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,” Delta said in the statement. “We are taking allegations of discriminations very seriously; our culture requires treating others with respect.”



  • hi-liter

    Nothing but honkys on the plane telling that man “bye” as he was escorted off. White people are the most racist people in the damn world.

  • tintin

    This don’t look like no prank to me. a few white ppl complain and just like that they get what they want. my goodness. I live in Canada and it ain’t even half as bad.

  • 1shy112

    Omg!! I hit delta up in every way today about this….He talking about I wanna cry ? ? Ok!! ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    What about the folks waving and clapping? Somebody ‘splain that ? Prank or not them MFs racist and I know it!

  • MyNameIs

    Still….F*ck Delta. They been racist!

  • LibraGirlonly

    He can’t believe his eyes??? Man where you been? These folks been racist

  • Chardonnai

    Delta been on bull the whole 2016. From kicking Kandi off the plane to not believing the lady doctors to the Sprite man using racial slurs to this.

    They need to get their public relations department together.

  • goat

    I think they’re both in the wrong.

  • Rachel

    People will do anything for attention, and fools will believe they see on YouTube and elsewhere online. Delta should ban him if it was truly a prank.

  • Chardonnai

    Prank how? If he was speaking Arabic on the phone and the sprites ask him to leave the plane that is wrong PERIOD.

  • KB

    PPL r doing the most & w/ the ? lately these folks are playing dangerously w/ their lives & others.

  • Rachel

    I said “if it was truly a prank” meaning if it was done as a prank and can be proven to be a prank he should banned.

  • hi-liter

    I bet when white people fly Emirates they’re not asked to not speech English. These white folk have really gone over the deep end.

  • RespectSelf

    People do understand that him doing a “Prank” would only mean that he was prepared to get kicked off because people are extremely REALLY(meaning their reactions are “real”) prejudice towards the Islamic community, right?

    Because he didn’t make people feel uncomfortable for joking (since they wouldn’t have known). They wanted him off the plane because they are prejudice. Others have had similar experience. Prank or not…

  • iWasteTime

    He is known for pranks. This was not a prank.
    He really got kicked off that plane because the 6 white people who clapped (and weren’t removed) complained. If it was a prank why didn’t the 6 white folk go just as hard and get kicked off too?
    Let’s not act like this particular airline hasn’t been reported all year for being dumb either

  • KimJongTrill.

    I don’t believe him ?. This time I don’t believe it had anything to do with his race. He may have just been having a normal conversation but If the crew recognized that he’s a prankster then they have every right to put him off that plane before he decided to try to pull something mid air. I don’t feel bed him. You make your bed, lay in it. They recognized him from YouTube and they didn’t have time this day.

  • RespectSelf

    I don’t get what you are saying. Prank or not it exposes how prejudice they are. It’s not like he acted like he had a bomb

  • Dr. P

    he’s a racist and does shyt like this for shyts and giggles…so if this really happened…giggle giggle my ngga

  • hi-liter

    Welp if he is indeed a racist, then he just got a big azz spoon full of medicine.

  • Chardonnai

    It’s not like he acted like he had a bomb

    This part right here.

  • Chardonnai

    Its not that hard to understand. Sheesh!

  • Junkanoo

    Does anyone else get annoyed when white folks ( sometimes even Asians and Latinos ) lock their car door with a quickness when they see a black male walking down the street. Racism is so exhausting you think about when you dont mean to.

  • MystyBlu

    Right. Did the whole plane of people get in on the prank cuzzzz ? They seemed awfully happy to see him go. And I recognize that look of smug entitlement a mile away

  • bemetoo

    I believe him because if he was trolling he would have started recording when the yt people were complaining

  • KB

    What a coincidence, Delta just released story about policy changes after the incident with the black female doctor in Detroit.

    Not their first complaint of racism. So can’t say I’m surprised. I flew Delta once out of desperation. The most uncomfortable flight ever.

  • nucynu25

    I said earlier how we are so quick to defend others .. never paid attention to this cat & i aint abt to start .

  • hi-liter

    Exactly, that would be the point to catch all reactions from the beginning to the end.

  • RespectSelf

    “Racist” is such a strong word….They have watered down the definition so that it could seem like any group of people could be considered “racist”. Naw… not even remotely! Any group of people that are widely discriminated against WILL NEVER be a racist. prejudice, yes, but not racist

  • Dr. P

    don’t waste your eyes on him. He got what he deserved

  • nucynu25

    NAH, I dont get mad bc i do the same thing to them . If me & my baby at the store and i see a group of cave demons walk in I grab my baby bc them bishes be kidnapping & eating ppl. When i go to a Chinese eatery i look around for pet hairs bc them bishes be eating pets .

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    He got on a plane full of cave dwellers speaking Arabic . Prank or not his slow corner store working ass should’ve known that wasn’t a good idea. They see him already assume , the he confirms by speaking. ? No surprise the cave dwellers kicked him off the plan. You can’t speak Arabic and look like a camel herder around Dump fam and not expect them to react.

  • Annaunki

    I have an Indian that lives next to me, and he so nasty and Prejudice. he complain all the time, i nailed a picture on my wall , he complained, i took a shower at 4 am, he said that disturbed him when the water came on, I vacuum, he reported that…….smdh….my leasing folks dont even tell me anymore , they just say ignore him.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Me neither. It’s funny I’ve seen Africans at the airport speaking Arabic and no one reacts to it. This Arab dude was on the taxi line at JFK with his daughter. She wasn’t older than 5-6. She had a suit case dragging it behind her. She was walking to slow for her father. So he said something to her in Arabic. The white people start looking tense. She drops the suit case and proceeds to walk to catch up to her father. When she dropped that suit case, the white people on line start silently freaking out. I saw one white man turn beet red. I was ?. They get to the exit and her father notices her suit case is missing. He yells at her walks over to where it is picks it up and they leave.

  • nucynu25

    lmao

  • indano

    I would have also felt uneasy. Too much going on to be playig on a plane.
    Folk play to much. Good job Delta. The people that’s talking boycott doesn’t fly anyway.

    Exactly!

    Well if true this is a clear case of crying wolf no one believes you.

    “Folk play to much. Good job Delta. The people that’s talking boycott doesn’t fly anyway.”

    Exactly, or else they would know that flying is NOT the time for games and antics.

    It’s just a fact now anything dealing with islams scares the hell out of westerners

  • shun king

    Add Mexicans as well

  • Butter

    it was real, did he have the whole plane in on the JOKE? We all saw the video, he was clearly upset and being escorted off the plane. How is it Fake?.. Eyes confused.

  • Lolalao

    Me too!

  • Butter

    I would definetly not find it then… Tell them someone stole it and if you got it … keep the extra. They kill me with that BS. I ordered a pair of shoes, and they said they left it at the Door…. It wasn’t there in the fake no crime area… My package was stolen. Then they left another… acted like I didn’t get that one either.. Got my $$ back and kept the order. STOP LEAVING MY SHIT OUTSIDE… YT PEOPLE STEAL

  • CapricornIce

    Dummy they should have pelted his ass in the head with those small airplane peanuts.

  • Aly

    I don’t have a problem with Muslims (except for the ones who refuse to use deodorant????). HOWEVER, if I hear somebody speaking Arabic and looking crazy on my flight I’m flucking em up on site. ???You ain’t about to hijack? me and mine…If that makes me racist oh well.

  • tintin

    Hahhahhahhahah

  • Di Ana

    Whether he was pulling a prank or not which I don’t think so is besides the point. what happens if he was speaking French or Swedish or some other type of European language would they have taken offense?

  • nucynu25

    Most likely not ..

  • Wreckognize Game

    Unfortunately, Delta is being tested over and over. They dragged the black woman from the plane, who bumrushed the gate but said nothing. They just put this Arabic man off the plane (prank or not). But the only person talking BS in plain English was the white man who harassed others. Next group’s turn to get put off will be an Asian person who was using a calculator. FOH Delta

  • AggieMom96

    Well let’s hope black person doesn’t “cause discomfort” or they will be escorted off as well. Smdh some Americans really don’t get it! Atrocious behavior.

  • AggieMom96

    You’re more likely to be killed in a at accident soooo get to swinging at those automobiles!

  • AggieMom96

    How is speaking a foreign language considered antics? You must not fly business class.

    What these other countries should do is boot Americans off their planes for speaking English and doing all their open and incessant praying and than all this ish will stop immediately!

  • Jamie Jay

    See, flights are having enough issues as it is, he should be banned. YouTube got these people head swole for a check

  • jussaying

    should’ve said: lol rly? did you ask the indigenous folks for a second opinion?

    on another note, if i were you i’d send everything to the post office or require a signature if i could. my parents live in a nice neighborhood but during the holidays people often drive thru ungated communities and steal boxes. happened to my mom two years ago – she bought a tv from amazon and they stole it from off of the garage.

  • jussaying

    I don’t understand why minorities always have the job of keeping white people comfortable…. Why do we always have to conform to them? Miss me with that mess.

  • pure_rachet

    MUSLIM IS NOT A RACE!!!

  • pure_rachet

    This is incredibly horrible to stereotype people. All who agree are in my opinion wrong. It so wrong to speak badly about a whole race of people. I’m not here to start a fight or debate. I just don’t agree and want to put that out there.

  • pure_rachet

    He’s cute.

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPNLc8xHhgCr9XfpCs9fX0g Simone Green

    I’m just going to sip some honey lemon tea and see how this plays out.He is a prankster and I’m not sure what to believe.

  • barbeez

    He can play around if he wants to….keep playing. Yeah we prejudice. Too many planes going down, shooting up clubs, knifing down students on campus, blowing up marathon runners. Play games if he wanna…ain’t nobody playing around with a terrorist. All I need to do is suspect and I’m gonna pepper spray and knock his azz out. You see that one man shoot down that ambassador. These terrorist are heartless. So keep playing his little games….keep playing.

  • barbeez

    Me too. I feel bad for the innocent ones because the bad ones kill to viciously and frequently. I keep my eye on all of them.

  • Torae

    You dont have to agree that’s why we all have different opinions?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Yet, Caucasians have a history of theft, violence and sheer brutality against man and animals. They are the true savages but paint others to be such. Right on. ??

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Yes. But when I say it, people want to get up in arms. To hell with ’em.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Are they sending you a duplicate item since it wasn’t placed at your door and/or in your hands?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Come through, Anna!!! ?? I love when people file a proper complaint.

  • Aly

    Imma need you to lower ya tone, no need for all caps. OBVIOUSLY Muslim is not a race. It’s a religion. I know plenty black Muslims. Most Africans in Africa are Muslims. I was stereotyping the towel wearing middle eastern “A-rabs”. THAT was racist. Those types of stereotypes are bigoted and prejudice. I know it’s wrong but that’s how I feel. It’s no different than a white person being fearful of a black man dressed like a “thug”… My point was when I’m flying with my family I don’t want to hear no Iranian yelling “Allah Akbar!” I’m going to think the worst that we bout to blow up.

  • Aly

    Exactly! Not ALL Muslims are dangerous, but sadly ENOUGH of them have been so it messes it up for them all.Thank you for keeping it real. I know a lot of people feel this way too but they’ll never admit it.

  • Annaunki

    Yes been on the phone. Last 2 hours with them. In still stuck on the fact he font think it folks steal.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    You know what to do. If the store isn’t doing anything to replace the item, which is their responsibility, then contact your CC company and file a complaint so your receive a refund for Fed Ex’s error. I hate Fed Ex with a passion.

  • JayCee087

    what about English-speaking non-Americans? Or are you just full of it and racist towards white people?

  • Aly

    If you lost someone in 9-11 or was in New York at that time then perhaps you’d have a better understanding. The world we live in is CRAZY! All bets are off. I don’t know about internationally, but within the continental USA when flying there is a “post 9-11” etiquette. Muslims have to be smart not just to make others comfortable but for their own safety. Many Muslim woman don’t even wear their hijabs when flying. It’s no different than blacks teaching their sons and husbands how to “behave” when they get pulled over by the cops. While blacks shouldn’t have to go through that, we do. Muslims shouldn’t have to go through it either but they do. That’s the world we live in get over it.

  • pure_rachet

    Lol my tone… OK. I said nothing about your views, opinions or the like. Just clarifying that you are not racist for saying that because Muslim is not a race. Jesus be a dictionary.

  • Rayne

    His stupid ass. Lock him up. Fawk that. I’m tired of stupid ppl doing stupid thing for FAWKING likes. ?

  • pure_rachet

    Oh No shiz? So glad you pointed out what is obvious and needed no response.

  • Aly

    Bye Bitch!

  • AggieMom96

    Islam is a religion. And wow really you’re refencing one domestic terrorism attack when some of those those countries are deluged on a daily basis?!! And usually supplanted by our military to boot?!? You want to compare numbers lost? Seriously?

    Keep your ignorance in check. More killing has been done in the name of God by Christians then any other other religion. Racism is rooted in a fake Christianity. So spare me. What makes you think you have the right to stereotype and judge people on the whole being wholly ignorant of what has been done in the name of America?

    And it is not the be compared to blacks and “behavior”.

  • pure_rachet

    BYE CUNT

  • AggieMom96

    Well I don’t see Delta ejecting non-middle eastern Americans off their planes for speaking Arabic, do you? Ignorant much or just stupid?

    You’re the racist making a ridiculous assumption that I insinuated that only white people fly internationally! Have several seats dummy. Or let me say it in French for you: Tunes tres stupide. Imbecile!

  • Aly

    Jesus be a dictionary for this bitch. I think @Torae said “some of the most”. Meaning SOME not all. And yes it is wrong to stereotype, OH WELL.

  • Aly

    That ho Rachet just wanna argue.

  • pure_rachet

    Re- read Torae’s statement. Then come at me with bull. I don’t care anyway. I have a god handle on the English language. I don’t need to shade people who don’t.

  • shun king

    I see the tides turning of hispanics being the managers of blacks it’s already happening in some industries

  • Shay Bay

    But we don’t know what happened before he started recording himself getting escorted off the plane. Was he simply just having a normal conversation on the phone?

  • Aly

    1st that “one” attack took almost 3000 souls. Not to mention there have been many Muslim attacks on US soil before AND after 9-11. 2nd where in my statement did I “compare” any numbers lost let alone who has suffered worst, etc? I simply mentioned 9-11 as it relates to flying. I didn’t know it was a contest. 3rd there is no need for a speech about religion. I never said anything against the Muslim religion. 4th I continuously stated that prejudging and stereotyping is WRONG so please step down from the soapbox. 5th what was wrong with my comparison? Being prejudged for your religion or culture is exactly the same as being discriminated against because of race.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    It changed years ago. They work for cheap and they are bilingual. Labor laws state that you cannot discriminate against an employee based on race or nationality, but I’ve seen so many listings stating “must be bilingual.” That’s discrimination. Everyone doesn’t know multiple languages, nor should they be required to in order to be gainfully employed, especially when they have the necessary education and experience in their chosen field to successful work in that field.

    TPTB have been setting us up for years.

  • AggieMom96

    No it isn’t. You can’t determine someone’s religion by simply looking at them- only ignorant Americans believe that you can. My point was that you are delusional in your rationale. If others treated us the way you believe it’s okay to treat them (I believe you said it’s life they should deal with it or accept it or some such nonsense) no Americans would be welcome anywhere.

    People like you are why Trump was elected- assuming someone’s religion is reason enough to validate your baseless fears. It’s the same tired excuse people give about black folks- they ALL do this or they’re all CAPABLE of that- just give it a rest. You’re wrong and you’re ignorant so just deal with that.

  • shun king

    And it seem like most. Black don’t notice the changes.My uncle tell me about how any man could get a brick laying job and support his family.Now it all Mexican ..I left my passion of cooking in fine dining because of the hatred the Mexicans show toward blacks…and the white guys will let there whole family work there and give them leadership positions because of the skin tone while the black cooks go to franchises like olives garden or apples bees,but you cannot really learn the industry in those places because of the basic menus…and that’s just a taste of what’s coming.pardon the pun

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    That’s terrible re: you leaving your career that you are so passionate about. Have you attended culinary school?

    Your uncle is right. Craftsman homes were built by Black men. They’re still standing beautifully 60+ years after being erected. People have no idea how new constructions are so problematic because Mexicans are doing construction now. I’m not sure if the laws are still the same, but CA homeowners had 15 years to sue for construction defects because of how poorly homes are built today.

    Please don’t let anyone steal your joy or passion for your craft. I was in love with the violin early in my life until I had one teacher who was a complete b*tch. I stopped playing because of her. I never should’ve stopped.

  • Torae

    A response is/was needed because You responded under me worried about MY OPINION. Now run along and find someone else to preach to because I SAID WHAT I SAID AND I MEANT IT??

  • Torae

    I also said “I’VE ENCOUNTERED” Which meant in my day to day experiences with them in my living/working area in which they are HIGHLY POPULATED! So again… I SAID WHAT I SAID?

  • Torae

    Yea I see?

  • pure_rachet

    I don’t give a fukk to even read whatever you typed. Bye bitch.

  • Glenda Johnson

    It’s no secret that people are uneasy on planes already for past facts related to 9/11 and the Boston Bombing attacks by people who speak a particular language. Yes, their are other threats to worry about, but so what? Those events are still present with people and if you live in the US you surely know this. For one, Every year on the anniversary, it’s played throughout the media all over again, so you know you shouldn’t be speaking any other language in public, regardless of it being damn rude, it’s clearly attention seeking, so I don’t believe this guy and he needs more viewers I guess. Also, I have a hard time believing people who are racist towards other minorities only to then turn around and complain about racism used against them. Decide.

  • Torae

    Dont argue with wildebeests…

  • shun king

    I left it along time ago but still have my methods and techniques…but now i work in a field that’s also a passion of mine and you must speak and read English lol…but yes a person can get discouraged by other people Or persons and it will change the whole dynamics of life…

  • jussaying

    umm requiring someone to be bilingual isn’t a form of discrimination. being bilingual is unrelated to race or ethnicity because anyone has the ability to acquire that job skill. i’m black but speak more than one language because i learned to do so. that’s like saying someone is being discriminated against if they don’t possess a college degree. if you want that particular job, go learn the other language. some jobs require the addition of another language because their market speaks that language or they are trying to compete to earn more customers. you can’t expect to live somewhere like Texas or California where lots of clients speak Spanish and feel companies that want to make money aren’t going to take note of that.

  • gscott

    It was great watching the liberals squawking and calling ‘Trump caused this’! Bunch of fuques. This kind of crap is like ringing a bell for Pavlov’s dog. They just can’t help but foam at the mouth.
