Adam Saleh is a popular YouTuber (with over 2.2 million followers on YouTube).  Early this morning news came out that he was escorted off a Delta plane.  One report I saw was that the plane was heading from the UK back to New York City

Kicked off a Delta flight – Adam’s side of the story

According to Adam, he was kicked off the plane for speaking Arabic to his friend and his mother.  He captured his side of the story on video and posted it to his Twitter account

The other side of the escorting off the plane story?

I don’t know what the other side of the story is yet, only that I’ve seen enough of these types of stories to know that there usually IS another side of the story.  I would imagine more details will come out over the next few hours / days.

UPDATE: According to CBS News, Delta has responded with the following comment

“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.”

While I’m certainly no fan of flight attendant power abuse, it certainly could be that Adam provoked or inflamed the situation (before the video started rolling).  Certainly it is human nature to portray oneself in the best possible light (“I wasn’t doing ANYTHING!!!) – I’m sure I would do the same.  When a lady told my wife and I that we “were the type of people that shouldn’t have children” certainly when I tell the story, I make myself out in the best possible light.  If she were telling the story, perhaps it would go differently….

What do you think?  Anyone that was on the plane able to comment?
