A security guard contracted to work at Greater Rochester International Airport is out of a job after handing a traveler a note that read “You ugly!!!” after the man passed the through the screening checkpoint.
Neal Strassner was passing through the airport when an unnamed female security guard gave him a handwritten note on a small slip of cardboard that read “You ugly!!!,” Rochester First reports.
Strassner said that he passed through the checkpoint without issue, took the odd note from the worker and kept walking. She reportedly called after him, asking “You going to open the note?” he said. She is then seen laughing.
UPDATE: The airport security employee has been fired, according to TSA. Here’s the video of the employee passing the mean note, laughing about it, and reaching for more paper to begin writing again. #ROC pic.twitter.com/wXLcD8aLwz
