Reality TV star J-Woww tweeted that she was “treated like a criminal” when airport security officers singled her out for a pat-down in North Dakota.
Jenni Farley of MTV’s Jersey Shore took to her Twitter account to let out some steam over her experience with the Transportation Security Administration at an airport in North Dakota, calling her pat-down “odd and deliberate.”
The reality television star tweeted that she noticed a TSA officer pointing at her while she was getting coffee at Fargo’s Hector International Airport.
“Hate when people abuse authority,” she said in a tweet about the incident. Farley also tweeted that she travels twice a week and has never had that happen before.
Farley isn’t the only celebrity to have received an unwanted pat-down by airport security. Khloe Kardashian drew fire for comments she made last year comparing the process of passing through airport security to being raped in public.
“Well, they basically are just raping you in public,” she told George Lopez on his TBS show last December.
Kardashian said she opted for a pat-down because she didn’t want the “X-ray to see everything,” but was shocked at how aggressive the screener was.
Additionally, former Baywatch star Donna D’Errico was more reserved about discussing her experience with airport screening but still questioned why she was singled out for what she called a “naked scan.”
“It is my personal belief that they pulled me aside because they thought I was attractive,” D’Errico, who posed for the September 1995 issue of Playboy, told AOL News last year.
Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie also experienced the controversial TSA security rules at Los Angeles International Airport when she was headed on a flight to New York last year.
The singer had to go through the new full body scanners just like everybody else. But unlike Kardashian and D’Errico, she didn’t make a fuss over it — she decided to brave the scanner rather than deal with the drama of a pat-down.
