The TSA is back in the news this week for all the wrong reasons. Two fliers stripped down naked in protest of the Transportation Security Administration last week, and now celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and swimsuit model Bar Refaeli are reporting “uncomfortable” incidents with TSA agents.
Refaeli tweeted yesterday:
“I got a security ‘patdown’ by a woman at the airport that made me feel very uncomfortable and left no doubt about her sexual preferences.”
Refaeli sent the message to her 172,000 followers who quickly shared similar experiences.
Unfortunately for the swimsuit model, her uncomfortable encounter with the TSA wasn’t the only thing that went wrong on the trip. The airline also lost her bags.
“2nd time in 2 weeks my bags don’t arrive at the airport. God better b planning something pretty major for me soon!!”
Refaeli isn’t the only celebrity who has had a bad experience with the TSA. Last year, Cheryl Burke from “Dancing With The Stars” tweeted “I think I might have just gotten fingered by a tsa agent” shortly after walking through airport security.
Jersey Shore‘s Jenni Farley said that she was “treated like a criminal” by the TSA. Wil Wheaton nearly gave up flying after his last encounter with the TSA. Wheaton tweeted: “I got groped so aggressively by TSA at LAX just now, I never want to fly again. Not even my doctor touches my junk that much. F**k you, TSA.”
Jennifer Hudson also experienced a TSA patdown recently. Hudson didn’t comment on the experience but E! Online was able to snap a few pictures of the visibly disgusted singer.
Have you ever had a bad experience with the TSA?
