Morrissey claims he was sexually assaulted by a member of staff at San Francisco Airport

The Independent

Morrissey has claimed he was sexually assaulted by a member of staff at San Francisco International Airport earlier this week.

Posting on True To You, an online Morrissey fanzine, the singer detailed an incident where he was approached by an airport security officer who “crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles.”

“Luckily I was accompanied by two members of British Airways Special Services, who were horrified at the sexual attack and suggested that I lodge a complaint.”

He said that he confronted the staff member and complained about the treatment only to be rebuffed by the man, who repeatedly said “That’s just your opinion.”

“Since the penis and testicles were mine and no one else’s, then my opinion must surely have some meaning,” he said.

“But, of course, what the airport security officer was saying was: your opinion will never count in the eyes of the law.”

He went on to say that though the incident was caught on CCTV, he doubted anyone would be reprimanded over what happened, and cast doubt over the airport’s duty of care regarding its  passengers.

The Independent has reached out to Morrissey’s agent and San Francisco International Airport for comment.

  1. Well now, that brings new meaning to his lyrics “the more you ignore me, the closer I get”?!

    Difficult to offend someone of his persuasion so I look at this cock-eyed. 😉

      yeah… if it did happen, he probably liked it, and if it didn’t, he could be just trying to get his name in the news.

      Furthermore.. what the hell else would you expect at the San Francisco airport? They’ve probably been doing this in Frisco long before the TSA was in existence.
