One of the stars of a hit reality TV show is claiming TSA officials unjustly targeted her for a pat-down before she boarded a flight out of Fargo, N.D., according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Jersey Shore" star Jenni "Jwoww" Farley said via Twitter that she wasn’t randomly selected, noting, "Cuz I saw the tsa there pointing at me while I was getting a coffee," according to the piece. She said that as she was boarding the plane, TSA officials asked her to return for additional searching, the story says.
“I’ve been patted down a bunch n don’t mind but after I’m getting on a plane seems odd and deliberate to me. Hate when people abuse authority,” the MTV reality star wrote.
A TSA representative said the agency "strives to screen all passengers with dignity and respect while performing its security mission," the piece notes.
