On their way back from Brazil, where they were busy posing like Jesus and partying beneath Will Smith, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got into some trouble at JFK Airport. After their flight from Rio landed, KimYe passed through customs and then an American Airlines' employee allowed them to bypass a security checkpoint on the way to their connecting flight to LA. When the TSA realized the security breach, they forced the couple to deplane to a private area of the jetway, where they were privately screened. You know, just the way the TSA would respond if a normal couple skipped through security.
"An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight," a TSA spokesman said. "In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to bypass the TSA security checkpoint. TSA officials learned of the violation and conducted a private screening of the two passengers in the area of the jetway. The passengers were cleared to board their flight."
The plane was delayed for almost an hour while the security screening took place. So who's to blame? Not KimYe, according the TSA. Instead, they're blaming the American Airlines employee, who was either starstruck or overly excited about American's just-announced merger with US Airways.
