AJ Francis calls out TSA on twitter.
New York Giants' defensive tackle A.J. Francis fired off several tweets directed at the Transportation Security Administration yesterday, claiming that they spilled his mother's ashes all over his suitcase while going through his luggage.
Francis posted a picture of his clothes covered in ashes after his return from a week in Arkansas and California celebrating the life of his mother. The photo was accompanied by the following message, "Hey you pieces of shit at @TSA next time you assholes feel the need to go thru my mother's ashes for no reason, make sure you close it back so her remains aren't spilled on all my clothes... the least you pieces of garbage can do is your fucking job."
TSA responded to his tweet, "We understand the emotional stress travelers are under when transporting the remains of a loved one. Our policies and procedures focus on ensuring that all passengers are treated with dignity, respect and courtesy. Our officers are trained to handle your carry-on and checked property with care. Out of respect for the deceased, under no circumstances should the container be opened. Please accept our apologies and our condolences."
In response to the TSA apology, Francis fired back, "Under all circumstances fuck yourself."
Francis, 28, recorded 18 tackles in six games with the Washington Redskins last season. He has also spent time with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks before joining the New York Giants in May.
