An airline passenger claimed that a security guard threatened to arrest him because he was wearing a T-shirt showing a cartoon robot with a gun.Of course, Heathrow staff are abjectly apologetic in light of the further bad publicity this has generated, right? No:
Brad Jayakody, 30, from London, said he was stopped from passing through security at Heathrow's Terminal 5 after his Transformers T-shirt was deemed 'offensive.'
A spokesman for Heathrow operator BAA said: 'If a T-shirt had a rude word or a bomb on it, for example, a passenger may be asked to remove it.Personally, when I fly, I hate getting stuck next to the woman with the crying kid, I find it upsetting. Can I get her thrown off, if she's got a 'Dirty Harry' t-shirt on...?
'We are investigating what happened to see if it came under this category.
'If it's offensive, we don't want other passengers upset.'
