A Delta spokesperson released a statement shortly after the video went viral. “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.”
According to Saleh’s Twitter, both him and his friend were brought through a security check after they were questioned by police. Afterwards, the two were put onto another flight headed to New York City.
