TSA removes security screener for note telling passenger to ‘get your freak on’

By Keith Laing

A Transportation Security Administration airport security worker has been removed from checking baggage because of a note with sexual implications he left for a passenger at Newark’s Liberty International Airport.

Jill Filipovic, a New York blogger who is also a lawyer, tweeted Monday that a note was left in her bag — which contained a sex toy, according to reports — that said “get your freak on.” The note was written on a TSA notice of inspection form, leading Filipovic to believe it was written by someone at airport security.

TSA said on its blog Tuesday that it had conducted an investigation into the incident and removed the employee that was responsible from duty.

“That individual was immediately removed from screening operations and appropriate disciplinary action has been initiated,” the agency wrote.

“The handwritten note was highly inappropriate and unprofessional, and TSA has zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”

The TSA blog Tuesday also said the agency had issued an apology to Filipovic, who tweeted a picture of the note.

For her part, Filipovic joked in subsequent tweets about the notoriety the incident had brought her.

“Lesson learned: Don’t tweet anything you don’t want to appear on The View. #FML,” she wrote Monday.

“Also, this twitter feed is now reverting to its usual content of wine, cheese, bacon and feminism. Unfollow away,” she followed up in a second tweet.
