French Montana was born in Morocco, and spoke no English when he came to america at the age of 13 years.
While Saleh maintains that the only reason he was taken out of the plane is that he spoke Arabic on the phone to his mother, Delta has said in a different way.
In a statement, the airline wrote: "Based on the information gathered to date, it appears that the customers that were removed tried to interrupt the cabin with the provocative behavior, including screaming. This type of behavior is not welcome on any flight on Delta. While one, according to media reports, is a well-known joker that was video-recorded and encouraged by his traveling companion, which is of paramount importance to the Delta is the safety and comfort of our passengers and employees. It is clear that these individuals attempted to violate the priority."
