Khloe Kardashian: TSA Pat-Downs Akin to ‘Public Rape’

Photo Courtesy -- ABC News(BURBANK, Calif.) -- Actor-director Kevin Smith has spoken out against air travel again, and this time he's joined by Khloe Kardashian and Baywatch babe Donna D'Errico.
 
Smith, who was deemed too fat to fly by Southwest Airlines earlier this year, tweeted his ire about missing a Virgin Airlines flight Monday despite arriving at the gate with first-class tickets minutes before his scheduled departure.
 
Meanwhile, Kardashian is drawing fire for comments she made Monday comparing the process of passing through airport security to being raped in public.

"Well, they basically are just raping you in public," she told George Lopez on his TBS show.

Kardashian said she opted for a pat-down because she didn't want the "X-ray to see everything," but was shocked at how aggressive the screener was.

"They say, 'OK, I'm going to be patting you down and I'm going to be touching the crease of your a--.' That is so inappropriate," she told Lopez, adding, "They are so aggressive and forceful."

Former Baywatch star D'Errico was more reserved discussing her recent experience with airport screening but still questioned why she was singled out for what she called a "naked scan."

"It is my personal belief that they pulled me aside because they thought I was attractive," D'Errico, who posed for the September 1995 issue of Playboy, told AOL News on Monday.

She said a TSA agent told her sarcastically that she was being singled out, "'Because you caught my eye, and they' -- pointing to the other passengers -- 'didn't.'"

D'Errico said she was "outraged" to see the agent "smiling and whispering with two other TSA agents and glancing" at her after the scan.
