TSA Reportedly Tells Passenger To 'Go To Hell'

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE, 4/24, 12:16 p.m.: After being contacted by HuffPost Travel, Berenson's tweet, along with a photo of the note, disappeared from his timeline. The note can still be seen on Gothamist.

A Manhattan man earned the ire of the TSA Sunday, as he was reportedly urged to "go to hell" after asking to file a complaint.

Ross Berenson had returned home from Los Angeles when he noticed his luggage had been tampered with. After a calm conversation with TSA workers, he was offered a complaint form to fill out. But, once on the subway, Berenson noticed that it had already been partially filled out, with a message saying "Go to hellllllllllllllllll."

According to Gothamist, the form was a photocopy, so who knows who else is going to have to head to h-e-double hockey sticks.

"I can't prove the TSA did this to my bag," Berenson admits. "And there was no note saying they inspected it." But, the TSA is on the case: A spokeswoman tells Gothamist that the agency is "reviewing the issue."

Of course, who can forget the famous "get your freak on girl" note left by a TSA baggage screener in a suitcase containing a sex toy. There was also the time rapper Freddie Gibbs found a note that read "c'mon son," left after a TSA agent found (but did not confiscate) his weed.
