Youtube Star JusReign forced to take off turban by airport security

Sikh comedian and Youtube Star JusReign (real name Jasmeet Singh) says that airport security forced him to take off his turban at the San Francisco Airport.




The manager told him that he had to take off his turban or miss his flight. He was taken to a private screening room then asked to walk to the bathroom without his turban on. "I wasn't trying to be a civil rights activist — but if something comes up right in front of me, I can't walk away from it," JusReign said after what happened.
