Los Angeles Chargers defensive lineman Sebastian Joseph-Day made a shocking accusation this weekend when he said that Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents had sexually assaulted him at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California.

The 28-year-old shared the situation on Friday on Twitter.

“I really just got sexually assaulted by TSA at @JohnWayneAir,” wrote Joseph-Day. “After I asked the gentleman to please stop BC I’m uncomfortable and I feel that this part of the check is unnecessary (After he felt what was needed). Then they told me I was the problem after 3 TSA agents swarmed me,” he wrote.

“I’m all for people doing their job well. But it was extremely unnecessary and dehumanizing. I travel a lot, for personal and work reasons. I’ve never experienced anything like that.

“And when I do try to file a complaint they are making me jump through hoops to do so

“I’m not sharing this on Twitter for sympathy. I’m sharing this so this group of gentleman and staff aren’t allowed to do this ever again to another human being.”

The John Wayne Airport didn’t immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

“TSA is aware of allegations made by a traveler who was screened by TSA officers at John Wayne Orange County Airport Friday morning,” the agency told Fox News Digital in a statement. “We are looking into the matter to determine if our procedures were followed and whether any corrective action needs to be taken.

“TSA remains committed to treating every traveler with dignity and respect while carrying out its security screening responsibilities.”
