A Delta passenger was arrested for spewing an anti-Semitic rant the night before Thanksgiving.

David Toaff was cuffed after landing in Atlanta for shouting remarks that fellow fliers deemed as racist after leaving Washington.

Atlanta cops told USA Today that Toaff, 37, shouted the remarks during midflight on Wednesday.

“Preliminary information indicates that while in flight … a male was yelling, asking Jewish people on board to identify themselves and marking remarks about bombings to passenger aboard the aircraft,” said Officer Lisa Bender.

Authorities were stationed at the gate for Toaff once he disembarked at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

“Local law enforcement met Flight 1822 in Atlanta due to a customer’s behavior on board the flight,” said Delta Air Lines spokesperson Adrian Gee.

Authorities assert Toaff wouldn’t calm down despite numerous requests to do so. He was ultimately detained after “continuing the disturbance” and resisting arrest.

“The male was taken into custody and charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct,” said Officer Bender, who added he was transported to the Clayton County Jail.

Jordan Dale, a passenger on the flight, recorded Toaff’s encounter with the Atlanta police after landing.

“Today a man on my plane went on an anti-Semitic tirade and demanded “all Jews raise their hands” so he could (identify) them,” tweeted Dale. “Later, during the arrest he protested and resisted arrest.”

In the video, Toaff can be heard telling cops that he’s “not a bad person” and asking, “What did I do wrong?”
