Everyone has seen the video Adam Saleh made claiming to be kicked out of a Delta Airline flight because he was speaking Arabic.
Of course the oh so sensitive internet went on a frenzy calling everyone racist and demanding a boycott of Delta.
Delta issued a statement that over 20 passengers complained and Adam Saleh and his friend were kicked out and rebooked after a disruption occurred in the cabin. They then followed up with an updated statement:
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. While one, according to media reports, is a known prankster who was video recorded and encouraged by his traveling companion, what is paramount to Delta is the safety and comfort of our passengers and employees. It is clear these individuals sought to violate that priority.
Who is Adam Saleh?
Adam Saleh is a Yemeni-American Youtuber with over 2 million (brain-dead) followers. He makes fake pranks and social experiments aimed at encouraging the narrative that Arabs are always victims and the West/White people are always racist.
His whole “career” and lifestyle is based off fake “Islamophobic” videos. He was even busted for faking a social experiment video where he was stopped by an NYPD officer for wearing “traditional Muslim clothing.” He ended up getting called out and admitted it. He claimed that he never wanted to mislead people. But of course he kept the video with 2 million views up so can keep making money out of it. He made an estimate of $3000 USD from that single video alone. Of course, that “police officer” was a paid actor.
He has a whole history of causing problems in an airport/airplane. Here he wanted to prove that one of his friends would get stopped at airport security, which he did… because he had something that was triggering the metal scanner. He made almost $2000 for that video.

Look at this list of titles of videos he’s made:
- COUNTING DOWN IN ARABIC IN AN AIRPLANE
- SPEAKING ARABIC IN AN AIRPLANE
- I smuggled myself on a plane to another city and IT WORKED (supposedly in a suitcase – he got called out by the airline)
So this is probably what ACTUALLY went down:
Adam Saleh counts down in Arabic or is yelling (as witnesses claimed) in Arabic. Doing something to annoy or scare people. People told him to shut up, but he didn’t. So they complained to the flight attendants who told him to stop. He didn’t so they complained again. People got pissed. He decided to create a scene and be a little bitch, yelling and claiming racism/discrimination. So they decided to kick him out of the plane for disrupting the cabin. He was so embarrassed he decided to play the victim and get the internet and his brain-dead followers to once again, help encourage the whole Arab-victim narrative.
This was true. All these years of him cashing in on fake Islamophobia and discrimination caught up to him because karma is a bitch.
But he bothered 20 people on the airplane. That’s 2-3 rows of people in the cabin!
He goes out of his way to provoke people’s fear and make people uncomfortable on an airplane. People are already tense flying, whether it be fear of flying or fear of terrorism. Why provoke that while obnoxiously yelling or talking in Arabic?
I avoid talking in Arabic on flights as much as I can. Why make people uneasy? Even then, I think I have spoken Arabic on almost every flight I’ve taken in myself and had no issue at all.
This guy had a history of causing shit. So much so that the security called him up before and told him not to do anything stupid.
This fake outrage will make him thousands of dollars while potentially risking the jobs of the honest and hardworking flight attendants. How does it feel to be part of that? Or when he finally gets exposed, how do you feel being responsible for making Arabic-speaking people’s reputation worse?
If you’re wondering what effect this has hand on him, so far in less than a day, his facebook page grew by 36.8%, around 250,000 people liked his page in just a day.
I hope Delta and every other airline bans him from flying so he can maybe learn his lesson of crying wolf.
Update: At the time of publishing this article, we had included a video where Adam confesses to faking a social experiment and hiring an actor. He has since taken down the video.
