By News Desk
Social media influencer Lord Aleem has alleged that he was forcefully made to leave a Manchester venue where a fight between Tommy Fury and KSI was organised.
The incident came to light after Lord Aleem, whose real name is Aleem Iqbal, posted a few video clips of his confrontation with the security staff who were seen dragging him out.

The Birmingham social media star was wearing a ‘Free Palestine’ T-shirt amid the ongoing conflict, due to which he was reprimanded.
In one of the clips shared by Lord Aleem, a security staff member is heard saying: “You cannot wear that inside the venue.”
The YouTuber then asks for an explanation behind the team’s decision to escort him out of the venue, as someone films the heated conversation.
He is then taken to another area of the venue with the manager of event security firm Showsec, which was responsible for security at the event.
The security guard tells Lord Aleem to cover his T-shirt with his jumper and when asked the reason for asking him to do so, the guard replies by saying that the t-shirt is the problem.
The influencer is then told that if he fails to do so, he will be ejected from the arena. Lord Aleem then looks at the camera and says: “He is going to take me out of here for wearing this T-shirt.”
Lord Aleem captioned a video clip adding: “I want @ksi @tommyfury @loganpaul @dillondanis & all the others that were on the card condemn these actions. Tag them, send them the reels.”
Several of his followers came forward to support him for standing his ground.
One wrote: “It’s ridiculous the way two men are holding him.”
Another added: “Much respect to you man… they can’t hide the truth now as they used to before no matter what they do.”
A third person wrote: “This is disgusting. I’d spend every penny I had righting this wrong! #freePalestine and for any of you uneducated losers commenting go and educate yourselves.”
However, some also expressed their disappointment with his actions.
One user wrote: “If you really care about Palestine and Palestinians you should go help them in person. It’s easy to act like a good guy from comfort of your western peaceful world while real people of the Middle East dream of escape.”
Another person defended the security, writing: “Security will have had orders from the venue. It’s a difficult position for them to be in.
“The security workers may well agree with the sentiment of the T-shirt.
“But whether they agree or not, they’ll have been given specific instructions on flags etc.”
