Adam Saleh has claimed that he was kicked off a Delta flight from London to New York because he was speaking Arabic. 

Adam'YouTube channel is mostly known for their prank videos, which is being taken into account, however, the YouTube star is insisting that this is not a prank. 

In a video that he uploaded to his Twitter account, Adam is seen in the middle of the aisle, in between all of the passengers telling the camera: "We spoke a different language and now we're getting kicked out... This is 2016. You guys are racist! I cannot believe my eyes. I spoke a word of a different language, and you feel uncomfortable?" 

In the background of the camera, you can see other passengers waving him goodbye and two hosts of the plane attempting to usher him out. 

Warning, harsh language in this video!

The video cuts prematurely, however, Adam continued to tweet his situation after being kicked off.

Delta Airlines has since spoken to the cabin crew and passengers aboard the plane and released a statement: 

"Upon landing the crew was debriefed and multiple passenger statements collected. 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 travelling 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."

After that report was released, Adam released his own as well:
