Within hours of a YouTube prankster being kicked off of a Delta flight, a social media campaign has emerged to boycott the airline. 

Delta Air Lines asked YouTubers Adam Saleh and his friend, Slim, to exit a flight heading to New York Wednesday morning. Mr Saleh, who has 1.6m subscribers to his channel, tweeted a video during the exchange with flight security along with updates after his removal. He claims they removed him for speaking Arabic to his mother.
