Morrissey is continuing to protest his treatment at the hands of Transportation Security Administration officials at San Francisco International Airport. You may recall Moz’s allegation that airport security officers groped his private parts during an unwarranted pat-down last July. The alleged sexual assault later came up in Morrissey’s interview with Larry King, and inconclusive footage from the airport security cameras emerged last month.
Now, in a new post on fan site/Moz mouthpiece True To You, Morrissey has proclaimed that TSA stands for “Thorough Sexual Assault” and that “It is unlikely that ISIS would stoop so low.” The post is accompanied by the above image referencing Morrissey’s recent single “Kiss Me A Lot.” Read the full text of the post below:
Morrissey has been repeatedly asked if anything resulted from his official complaint (aided by British Airways representatives) to TSA where, on 27 July, having cleared both a complete body scan and an inspection of all of his belongings, Morrissey was then taken aside by a male TSA representative who squeezed Morrissey’s penis and testicles.
Morrissey has commented:
“TSA have ignored my official and legal and constitutional complaint. From this we gather that TSA stands for Thorough Sexual Assault. If you are traveling through San Francisco International Airport you must be ready for a full sexual attack by people who claim to have your interests at heart. It is unlikely that ISIS would stoop so low”.
Sexual assault is serious business, and if Morrissey experienced it, he’s right to be angry. But he’s not earning himself any extra goodwill by framing his outrage in such atrociously offensive terms.
