Man alive, Delta Airlines just can not (or will not) stop screwing up. So far this year they've refused to believe that women of color can be doctors and screwed over a mom trying to travel with breastmilk for her infant. And now they've reportedly kicked a man off their plane for speaking another language.
According to several videos posted on Twitter by a man named Adam Saleh, he and his friend were forcibly removed from a Delta Airlines flight before takeoff when some white passengers claimed they were "uncomfortable" because Saleh spoke in Arabic on the phone to his mother.
Saleh can be heard asking that his videos be shared on social media to get the word out, and soon afterward, the hashtag "#boycottDelta" started gaining traction on Twitter.
It's important to mention that this is the same guy who, just days ago, was busted for a false claim that the managed to travel from Melbourne to Sydney, Australia IN A SUITCASE. That is completely not true, and not possible, and the airline (not Delta) shut him down hard.
But in this case, his claim might very well be true. And if it is, good lord Delta, get your shit together already. It is almost 2017 and people speak other languages besides English. It's unfortunate that that makes some passengers uncomfortable, but that's their problem. Taking people off planes because their languages and skin colors are upsetting to some folks is not the answer. We'll of course update this post if we learn anything else relevant to the story.
