Man Appalled by 'Rude' Way Delta Responded After 'Bigot' on Flight 'Harassed' His Muslim Family

"Muslim woman was told 'This is America!!'"

A man turned to Twitter Monday evening to complain about the way Delta Airlines dealt with a passenger aboard a flight who allegedly "harassed" his Muslim family.

Abed A. Ayoub, who works as a legal and policy director for the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, said his sister was verbally "assaulted" on a Detroit-bound plane as a way to handle the situation.

Ayoub, who said that a passenger had a recording of the incident, appeared to become more infuriated when Delta moved the family to the back of the plane.

After the flight landed, Ayoub said that two agents met the family at the gate and "promised action" against both the flight crew and passenger.

A representative for Delta could not be reached for comment by TheBlaze Monday night.

Ayoub said that he was "grateful" for all the support his family has received thus far and would "provide further updates" later.
