NFL star Sebastian Joseph-Day is claiming that he was sexually assaulted by a TSA agent in California.
“I really just got sexually assaulted by TSA at @JohnWayneAir. After I asked the gentleman to please stop BC I’m uncomfortable and I feel that this part of the check is unnecessary (After he felt what was needed),” Chargers defensive end Sebastian Joseph-Day tweeted. “Then they told me I was the problem after 3 TSA agents swarmed me.”
The athlete added that the incident was “extremely unnecessary and dehumanizing.”
TSA issued a statement about Joseph-Day’s claims.
“TSA is aware of allegations made by a traveler who was screened by TSA officers at John Wayne Orange County Airport Friday morning. We are looking into the matter to determine if our procedures were followed and whether any corrective action needs to be taken,” the agency said in a statement. “TSA remains committed to treating every traveler with dignity and respect while carrying out its security screening responsibilities”
