Delta Airlines is getting roasted on social media today after YouTube star Adam Saleh posted a video of him and entourage getting booted off a plane. The well-known prankster, claims he was kicked from a flight to New York out of Heathrow Airport in London for speaking in Arabic to his mother on the phone.
“We’re getting kicked off the plane because we spoke a different language,” he says directly into the camera. “This is 2016 … I spoke a word and you said you feel uncomfortable.”

After the video went viral, rapper French Montana is taking a stand against the airline by publicly stating that he will no longer us their services.
“I don’t like speaking on things like this but this struck a nerve,” he states on an Instagram post. “I have a mother that doesn’t speak English and discrimination like this make me really sad. The fact that this can happen to her makes me sick. I’m NOT using delta anymore smh #equality”
That’s not the only blow for Delta today online. The hashtag #BoycottDelta is now trending worldwide on Twitter and users are furious.

How can people say something is fake when there's literally videos of it happening? Grow up and accept that racism exists. #BoycottDelta

Arabic is one of the six most-spoken languages in the world. Violating a basic human right isn't justified. Speak up. #BoycottDelta
