New York Giants lineman A.J. Francis is - to put it mildly - furious with the way his mom’s remains were treated when he flew this week. The lineman took to social media and posted photos of what we figured out a suitcase and his clothes with his moms ashes all over them.
We can’t repeat most of what he said, as Francis was understandably upset, but the gist is the TSA went through the urn and didn’t seal it back up. The NFL player made a point to say he was fine with his bag being searched, but touching the urn was a huge problem.
The TSA tweeted back explaining that agents are taught to never search remains and then apologized and sent their condolences (they've also denied they did it at all). In a colorful way, Francis rejected their apology.
