Earlier today, Alyssa Milano was going through security at Heathrow Airport in London and airport security confiscated one of her very important liquids. No, not lube (although that would be tragic). According to several very angry tweets type-hissed by Alyssa (via People), airport security took away her breast milk. Alyssa didn’t have her 7 month old baby with her at the time, but she still needed to get the milk out, so she pumped 10oz of it and stashed it in her bag. However, it turns out airports don’t like it when you bring breast milk through security without a baby to drink it, and they also don’t like it when you bring more than 4oz of a liquid, so they yanked Alyssa’s recently pumped milk and dumped it in the trash.
That’s when Alyssa whipped out her phone and called Heathrow out for being a bunch of breast milk-thieving bastards.
Heathrow eventually replied to her and offered a sorry-not-sorry about the whole thing:
They also tweeted her the link to the liquid restriction policy. Yeah, that’s definitely not going to piss someone off even more.
As someone who has been subject to an awful lot of “random” searches (what about me says check that trick’s bag? Is it my chronic stoner eyes? It is, isn’t it), I know that airport security doesn’t play and will find any reason to take your shit. But breast milk? Has anyone ever tried to hide their fishy pre-flight business in breast milk? Besides, Samantha Micelli would never play airport security like that. Tony Micelli didn’t raise a shady sneak!
