Morrissey Says He Was Sexually Assaulted by Security at San Francisco Airport

Image Courtesy of Harvest/CapitolMorrissey has claimed that he was sexually assaulted while going through security at San Francisco International Airport earlier this week. In a post to the True to You fan site, the former Smiths frontman writes that while traveling through the airport, a security officer "crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles."

"Luckily I was accompanied by two members of British Airways Special Services, who were horrified at the sexual attack and suggested that I lodge a complain," Morrissey writes. He adds that before he filed a complaint, he confronted the officer about the alleged assault and was told, "that's your opinion."

"What is clear is that, should you find yourself traveling through San Francisco International Airport, you should expect sexual abuse from the so-called 'security officers' who, we are unconvincingly warned, are acting only for our security," Morrissey concludes.

Morrissey just completed a North American tour, which included a show at New York City's Madison Square Garden. He'll return to the U.S. for three shows in California in August.
