Last weekend, legendary singer Diana Ross performed at Jazz Fest in New Orleans. She had some trouble while leaving the city though at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. She went through TSA and had the worst experience.
Ross claimed on Twitter that a female TSA agent “made her feel like s*it” and violated her. At the time, the agent said she was simply doing her job. Ross added that she was felt on her legs and front and back areas. Ross said it was so bad that she almost cried.
Now, TSA at Louis Armstrong airport are speaking out and coming to their own defense. They told TMZ that an investigation was conducted into Ross’ claims of what happened. Surveillance footage and officers interviewed revealed that there was no violation.
One TSA agent said “Protocols for resolving alarms during Advanced Imaging Technology screening were correctly followed.” We all do feel awkward and somewhat uncomfortable during the screening process with TSA but the footage needs to be shown to the public soon to really determine if the TSA agent in New Orleans was truly out of line.
