YouTube “prankster” Adam Saleh posted a video on Twitter Wednesday claiming he was kicked off a Delta Airlines flight to New York from London for speaking in Arabic on the phone.


Shortly after the video was posted the hashtag #BoycottDelta began trending.


In a statement Delta said that two passengers were escorted off the flight “after a disturbance in the cabin resulted in more than 20 customers expressing their discomfort.”

Delta also went on to say they are “conducting a full review to understand what transpired” and that they are “taking allegations of discrimination very seriously; our culture requires treating others with respect.”

Due to Saleh’s history of posting hoax videos online, many are finding it hard to believe that he was actually kicked off the flight because he spoke another language.

Earlier this month, Saleh posted a fake video to YouTube where he claimed to have traveled from Melbourne to Sydney in a suitcase.

In 2014 Saleh was also busted for posting a fake video titled “Racial Profiling Experiment,” where he dressed in “Muslim” clothing and was then pinned to a wall and frisked by a police officer.

The original description of the video was the following:

We were filming another video for our channel with our cultural clothing but we kept getting followed by Police. So, we decided to film this social experiment on racial profiling. Too many innocent people get stopped and frisked every day because of what they wear or their skin color. We’re against people stereotyping others because of what they wear or what skin color they are. Hope you all can spread the message and help bring an end to this.

The description was later updated after Saleh admitted it was fake:

This video is a Dramatization of previous events that occurred with us in our tradition clothing while filming in NYC. This video is not against the NYPD, it’s just an example of what we have to go through sometimes when filming in NYC. This is to raise awareness for Racial Profiling.
