Brie Larson Tweets About Uncomfortable Experience With a TSA Agent

Brie Larson is opening up about a situation that made her feel uncomfortable involving a TSA agent.

The 28-year-old Academy Award-winning actress started a discussion on Twitter on Thursday (October 5) when she tweeted about the encounter.

“I merely smiled at a TSA agent and he asked for my phone number. To live life as a woman is to live life on the defense,” she wrote.

When Brie was faced with some backlash from commenters suggesting that it was a perfectly acceptable gesture on the part of the TSA agent, she hit back: “You do realize you’re blaming me for a situation I did not ask to be in? A situation that made me uncomfortable?”

See all of her tweets below.

    I don’t like her anymore. So he asked for her number – big fucking deal. All she had to do was say no and move on. But NO, it has to be a big FEMINISM deal and she has to make a BIG DEAL about it because she was UNCOMFORTABLE. STFU.

    I agree with Brie. Many men use gestures such as smiles as openings to hit on women, which many women don’t want to deal with.
