Mans Racist Snapchat Story Targets Sleeping Sikh On Plane Flight [View all]

Sleeping on a plane is hard enough. Itís worse when a fellow passenger mocks you on Snapchat the whole time and suggests youíre a terrorist.

Thatís what a Sikh worshipper en route to Indianapolis had to endure last week. Screenshots of the posts are sparking outrage on Twitter.

The prejudiced posts were made by an unidentified man, but were captured for posterity by Dr. Simran Jeet Singh, an assistant professor in the religion department at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

The flight apparently landed without incident, but Dr. Singhís screenshots of the xenophobic remarkís are striking a chord on Twitter, having received more than 7,200 retweets and 8,600 likes since Thursday.

Singh said the types of reactions exemplified by the Snapchat poster are typical.
