#BoycottDelta is currently trending on twitter...

and the story appears to be that two men who were having a conversation in Arabic were escorted off a Delta flight for not speaking English.

But, here’s the catch: one of them, the one who recorded the “aftermath” of them being escorted off the plane, is YouTuber Adam Saleh, who is a “YouTube prankster” by profession and is known for doing this kind of thing regularly, i.e. filming pranks on planes for clicks on YouTube. As it so happens, his most recent video was even within the last few days.

Examples:

So the way I see it, either karma came back to bite him in the ass, or this is another one of his “pranks” and he’s manipulating social media and slandering an entire multi-billion dollar corporation to accomplish it.

YouTuber Adam Saleh was apparently removed from a Delta flight for speaking Arabic

  • YouTuber Adam Saleh was kicked off a Delta Airlines flight on Wednesday, allegedly for speaking Arabic on the phone to his mother. 
  • Saleh, a Yemeni-American, tweeted a video he recorded of being escorted off Delta Airlines Flight 1 at London’s Heathrow Airport with his friend Slim Albaher.
  • The video shows a number of passengers waving goodbye to Saleh.
  • “I spoke a word and you said you feel uncomfortable,” Saleh said, speaking to passengers on the plane. “Why are you guys doing that? Just because I spoke a different language?”
  • Delta also said a full investigation of the incident is underway. Read more

Disclaimer: I recognize some of these are much better and more sensitively written than others (some may even be considered queerbaiting depending on who you ask), but I still feel it’s important to include them as they still represent a gradual progressive change within the industry. I tried to avoid including anything too overtly offensive. Also, Gakuen Handsome is mostly there for the lolz.)


Edit: I see that a lot of people are treating this as a recommendation list, so I thought it’d be useful to provide notes and warnings on the LGBT content in each show (as some are definitely better than others). Enjoy.
