Sikh-Canadian Comedian Says He Was Forced to Remove Turban at San Francisco Airport - NBC News

My article for NBC Asian America
"Like any Sikh man in my position, it was demoralizing and embarrassing, to be sent out after being forced to remove my turban," Singh, whose YouTube channel has nearly 700,000 subscribers and more than 99,000,000 views, said. "I've done YouTube videos where I have shown my hair and I have shown how to tie a turban, so I'm more comfortable in the public space, but if it was anyone else in my position — another Sikh man or maybe a woman in hijab — to force them to walk out to use a bathroom to tie their turban or hijab again, it's kind of ridiculous. Just bringing a mirror to the private screening room will allow them to put it on again, which is not that big of a hassle on their end."
