Kanye West and Kim Kardashian bypass security line to board plane at JFK


Star couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is in the hot seat after the pair reportedly skipped an airport security line in New York’s JFK airport to catch a connecting flight.

According to reports in both the New York Post and the New York Daily News, the celebrities were returning from Carnival celebrations in Brazil and were trying to catch a connecting American Airlines flight to Los Angeles. A Transportation Security Administration spokesperson said an airline staff member took the VIPs “through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight.”

The two made their flight but, when another employee discovered West and Kardashian had not been screened, they were made to disembark the plane for a screening. Meanwhile, a plane full of passengers was delayed for an hour, the reports say.

The Transportation Security Administration is looking into the violation of protocol, said a spokesperson.

  1. this is how u.s.royalty is treated

  2. Methinks a fan is about to lose his/her job… guess Kanye and Kim think they are worth it.

  3. Curious, does anybody think either of these two would pose any kind of threat? They are widely and well known, and neither has any sort of link to terrorism activities or sympathies. Bundle this in with the circumstances of this particular flight and the question has to be asked:

    Is the point of airport security to make people secure, or simply to inconvenience everyone equally?

    Because the answer to that question matters a lot as to whether this is a case of any importance.
