Transformers t-shirt + airport = bad idea, for some ridiculous reason

by Andy on June 2, 2008

Yep, that is definitely a dangerous t-shirt

French Connection (the lovers of mispelt naughty words) released a range of Transformers based tees last year (I think), that I remember thinking were pretty badass when I saw them in a shop, but I didn’t think they’d were so badass that anyone would cause anyone to think that the wearer was a terrorist.

Go through security, get pulled to the side. I’m wearing a French Connection Transformers t-shirt. Bloke starts joking with me is that Megatron. Then he explains that since Megatron is holding a gun, I’m not allowed to fly. WTF? It’s a 40 foot tall cartoon robot with a gun as an arm. There is no way this shirt is offensive in any way, and what I’m going to use the shirt to pretend I have a gun?

Seriously, WTF? I know that security guards have a job to do, but come on, this is just ridiculous, that is obviously Optimus Prime.

    If this IS a true story then it’s an example of gross stupidity by the airport staff. What were they thinking, the t-shirt is really a gun? Mad.

    That security guard should be fired for not knowing the difference between Optimus Prime and Megatron. Also, the difference between a t-shirt and a real gun.
