Adam Saleh has made a name for himself that is sanctified in the ranks of YouTube celebrities. This controversial YouTuber, actor, and rapper is a self-proclaimed joker.
Adam has been vlogging since 2012 and enjoys focusing on social discrimination and racial profiling issues. He is usually supported by two of his best friends. His videos usually strike a nerve in the carefully managed socio-cultural landscape of society, and this has got him into trouble on several occasions.
Adam is from Yemen and lives in New York City. He attended Central Park East High School and then the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
In 2012 he started his YouTube channel TrueStoryASA with a college friend, Sheikh Akbar. He was also a part of the YouTube channel 3MH. It was founded by him, Sheikh Akbar, Slim Albaher, and Karim Metwaly. However, the group disbanded in 2015 and Adam has been going his own way ever since.
Adam rarely makes a video that doesn’t go viral. One video that comes to mind is the video “Racial Profiling Experiment”, which he released on his YouTube channel in October 2014.
The video started with Adam and his good friend, the sheik in western clothing. They started arguing with each other in the presence of a policeman, but the policeman just ignored them. A few moments later they played the same scene again, only this time they were dressed in culturally Muslim clothes. This time the policeman stepped in to stop them and treated them in a rude manner. The viral character of the video caught the attention of the media. The public perception and reaction to the video were directed against the policeman.
Adam Saleh and Sheikh AkbarAdam claim that the video is a means to recreate some negative events of the past against Muslims. However, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) demanded an apology from Saleh and his friend. They accused them of trying to gain cheap popularity through the Muslim struggle and of fanning the flames of an already flare-up socio-cultural and religious issue. Ironically, before demanding an apology, the organization had rewoven his video.
He continues his controversial nature in another video, in which he claimed to have landed a Tigerair flight in a suitcase in the luggage compartment. Melbourne airport security responded quickly and released footage exposing the incident as a hoax. The video clearly showed that Adam boarded the plane. They also pointed out that there was a weight limit on luggage and that a crate with Adam’s weight would not have been allowed on the flight.
This was followed in December 2016 by another video in which he claimed that he was taken off a Delta Air Lines flight at Heathrow Airport. He claimed that his crime was speaking Arabic. The Air Line and other passengers fought back and said he had not been thrown off because of his knowledge of Arabic. He had been a nuisance on the plane and provoked other passengers.
Besides making controversial videos, Adam Saleh also has a certain reputation as a musician and actor. He appeared in the American comedy-drama and action movie American Sharia. He has also tried his hand at music. On 3 May 2015, he released a single entitled Diamond Girl. It was released on his YouTube channel TrueStoryASA. He released a follow-up single called Tears, in which he played Zack Knight. The song was recorded in honor of his cousin. He also has another track called Tomorrow’s Another Day.
