TSA:

We're Sorry About

The Whole Nipple Thing

3/28/2008 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Whole Nipple ThingGloria Allred 1, TSA 0!

The Transportation Security Administration has officially changed their screening process regarding nipple rings.

Today they acknowledged that they may have gone too far by having a woman remove her nipple rings during a stop at airport security clearance in Lubbock, TX.

The TSA posted the following statement on their website: "TSA acknowledges that our procedures caused difficulty for the passenger involved and regrets the situation in which she found herself. We appreciate her raising awareness on this issue and we are changing the procedures to ensure that this does not happen again."

Hooray for nipples everywhere!

I told 'ya Gloria was good ! She likes the publicity, it's good for bz. She's not a liar, doesn't pose nude, and has NO sex tapes. She always wins, too.

Not True    


The whole thing was trumped up to begin with. The TSA had the guidelines listed on their site about how a person MAY be asked to remove private piercings, and it was on the site BEFORE the woman had the difficulty with security. It's unfortunate that she was embarrassed, but it's ridiculous for Allred to act like the woman was abused or something.
