“You Ugly” Note Passed Through Airport Security
Last month Neal Strassner was going through security at the Greater Rochester International Airport when he was stopped- but not for the usual random screening process. After going through a metal detector a security worker handed him a note that read "You ugly!!!" before sending him on his way. It all happens, clear as day and captured on security footage obtained by Eyewitness News 3.
Strassner said he didn't think much of the note saying "I got handed something. I really didn't look at the thing, I kept going,” but the security worker appeared to have wanted to get a rise out of him because "she called back to me a few times, asked me if I was going to read the note or open it or something."
It's also very possible that Strassner wasn't the only one to get a mean note: the end of the video shows the worker pulling out a pen and another small sheet of paper to start writing more. Jenny Burke, a TSA spokesperson, said in a statement that "(The) TSA holds contractors to the highest ethical standards and has zero tolerance for this type of behavior... The employee has since been terminated."
