Football player alleges TSA spills mother's ashes

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- New York Giants defensive lineman A.J. Francis lashed out against the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on social media Monday, alleging they mishandled the urn carrying his mother's ashes.

ESPN reports Carrie Leanne Francis died in late June. On Twitter, Francis posted a picture of clothes covered in what appear to be ashes. In a profanity-laced claim, he says the agency did not close the urn and her ashes spilled onto his clothes.

The TSA Twitter account responded to Francis' photo, writing that the urn containing ashes should not have been opened.

Francis did not accept their apology, and told multiple media outlets he would not comment further on the situation.

Francis joined the Giants this offseason, having previously played with the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, and Seattle Seahawks.
