LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Playboy’s Donna D’Errico (photos below) was humiliated during a recent TSA run-in. Donna D’Errico heated up the beach in a bikini on Baywatch, appeared unclothed in Playboy, but now says a full body scan delivered by TSA at LAX International Airport was an outrageous humiliating experience.
In a new interview, Donna D’Errico says her boyfriend looks like a terrorist and was more likely to be stopped that her. Boyfriend Roy J. Bank, the president of Merv Griffin Entertainment, according to D’Errico “looks much more like a terrorist than either I or my son do, and he went through security with no problems.”
How did she come to that conclusion? She claims her boyfriend fits a “stereotypical ‘look’ of a terrorist when his beard has grown in a bit”.
Did the TSA agents recognize D’Errico? Her Baywatch role ended in 1998. “I’m not sure whether they had recognized me or not.” TSA spokesman Nico Melendez defended the procedure.
Recently John Tyner complained about TSA at San Diego International Airport. ”If you touch my j–nk, I’m going to have you arrested,” fumed Tyner during the encounter. A recent report claims online groups are starting to document alleged claims of TSA assaults. Those pat down searches have fumed not just passengers but also pilots.
TSA has long defended its full-body scanners. While a screener can see your body unclothed, you face is blurred, claimed officials. One the passenger is screened, their imagery is deleted, claims TSA.
