Rapper French Montana took to Instagram Wednesday to vent his frustration with Delta Airlines after YouTube sensation Adam Saleh reported acts of racial profiling during his flight to New York City.
Saleh filmed himself being kicked off Delta because he was speaking in Arabic — his native language — while on the phone with his mom. “Guys, we spoke a different language on the plane and now we’re getting kicked out,” he said during the video. “This is 2016!”
After the video went viral, French Montana, who is Moroccan and speaks Arabic, voiced his anger on Instagram in a post that has since been deleted.
“I don’t like speaking on things like this, but this struck a nerve,” read the caption of Saleh’s video reposted on French’s page. “I have a mother that doesn’t speak English and discrimination like this makes me really sad. The fact that this can happen to her makes me sick. I’m not using Delta anymore. Smh. #equality.”
