We've seen videos of Stolen Valor before — people impersonating someone who they are not while in a military uniform. Parrish Alleman of CBS-affiliate WIAT 42 in Birmingham, Alabama, launched a five-month investigation after receiving tips that a military member she had interviewed was a fake. It turns out after a lot of investigative reporting that Julee Johns had only served 16 days — not the16 years she initially claimed.

Man Claims He Spoke Arabic And Got Kicked Off Delta Flight

Man Claims He Spoke Arabic And Got Kicked Off Delta Flight

WARNING: Adult language used. Youtube prankster and personality Adam Saleh posted a video on social media claiming he was getting kicked off a plane flight since he spoke Arabic with his mom on the phone and a friend. We're not sure exactly what happened before this video was shot and if it was just a publicity stunt or if it was instigated by Saleh himself. Saleh is known for his airplane hoaxes including his "Counting down in Arabic on a plane experiment" and "Never wear this on a plane in America" videos. This current video shows a Delta employee in a yellow vest while some passengers around him cheerfully bid him goodbye. Another man is sympathetic and questioning why Saleh is being asked to leave the flight. Delta released a statement after the incident saying, "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.” The airline also pointed out that Saleh is known for other airport pranks including pretending to smuggle himself in a suitcase earlier this month. Saleh and his friend responded to the allegations with a video recapping what they say happened. They said a woman complained about the friend speaking Arabic and said she felt uncomfortable. From there, they said there was a chain reaction with passengers weighing in on both sides. The guys also said they are upset that Saleh's past as a prankster is being used against them and that the incident was real. View Now
