Los Angeles Chargers player Sebastian Joseph-Day is accusing TSA agents of sexual assault.

As HuffPost reported, according to the defensive end, the incident occurred at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California.

Joseph-Day opened up about the assault on Twitter Friday, March 28.

I really just got sexually assaulted by TSA at @JohnWayneAir,” he wrote. “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.” 


Joseph-Day added that while he supports “people doing their job well,” the incident was “extremely unnecessary and dehumanizing.”

“I travel a lot, for personal and work reasons. I’ve never experienced anything like that,” he tweeted, tagging the airline again.

The Pennsylvania native added later that filing a complaint is out of the question, sharing that when he tried to do so, the Orange County airport makes him ” jump through hoops.”

TSA has addressed the incident, stating they are “aware of allegations made by a traveler who was screened by TSA officers at John Wayne Orange County Airport Friday morning,” Fox 59 reported.

“We are looking into the matter to determine if our procedures were followed and whether any corrective action needs to be taken,” the agency said.

Concluding him recounting what happened, Joseph-Day said that he’s 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,” he wrote.

Joseph-Day is a staple on the Chargers, bringing the team to victory at the 2021 championship, Bossip reported.
