During a recent airport visit, legend Diana Ross felt ‘violated’ by the transportation security administration. While at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, an encounter with a female TSA agent made her ‘want to cry’. She even claimed, “OK so on one hand I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport I was treated like shit.”
During a series of tweets, Ross described the incident stating, “I am feeling violated – I still feel her hands between my legs, front and back (saying to me it her job) WOW!! really mixed emotions I always like to see the good things but not feeling good right now.” Though Ross stated, “Its not what was done but how”. A spokesperson for the TSA, Mark Howell, claimed in an emailed statement that they reviewed video of Ross’ screening process and found that the agents involved “followed all protocols.”
The agency also provided, “However, TSA will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can further explain our procedures, designed to protect travelers from a persistent threat.”
What are your thoughts? Did TSA go to far?
