Nicki Minaj Says She Was ‘Overtly Fondled’ By Airport Security Recently

For many fans, Nicki Minaj‘s voluptuous body, including her much-talked about derriere, is considered a national treasure. So, while it’s completely wrong, it’s no surprise that a TSA agent allegedly got a bit too touchy-feely when she got her hands on the famous rapper recently.

The Hip-Hop Princess took to Twitter to complain about the actions of the Transportation Security Administration while traveling through London’s Heathrow Airport en route to the Philippines after performing at the “T in the Park Festival” in Scotland. “Pretty sure I was just overtly fondled @ this check point,” she wrote. “By a very old lady w/an accent. Word?”

After being frisked, Nicki took the picture below of her apparent assailant, a move which was not well received by airport security. “So TSA always takes pics of me while doing their job!,” she Tweeted. “But wld u believe they just told ME EYE couldn’t take pics???? Wow.#luckyIMsick‬”

Nicki Minaj isn’t the first celebrity to complain about being touched by the TSA. Jersey Shore star Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, actress Megan Fox, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ Khloe Kardashian have all complained about being inappropriately touched in the past. But, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Transportation Subcommittee, is hoping to change all that.

Recently, Rogers proposed that celebrities should get a free pass through airport security. “There are certain people that are just so well-known that you’ve just got to use your common sense,”he said. “Because, if you start patting them down, people are going to say, ‘They’re patting down Beyonce.’ I mean, she’s not going to blow a plane up.’”

Well, I’m not going to blow a plane up, either, but I still have to go through airport security. So, I ask: Do you think it’s fair for stars to get special treatment when traveling?
