Reddit user biff2204 was on a flight from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to the Philippines when he awoke to a Muslim man shouting in Arabic at the top of his lungs, standing right by the emergency exist.

"I think anyone shouting next to an airplane's exit door is asking to be tackled, Muslim or not," another wrote.
