According to the gay actor and activist, while traveling this morning through New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport on his way to Orlando, a TSA representative confiscated a "bludgeoning device" from his carry-on luggage. The item in question was Cruz's ab wheel (which I have just added to my Christmas list).
Cruz provided a colorful account of the experience via Twitter:
@wcruz73 - "It's officially Thanksgiving... I've had my altercation with TSA over my apparent 'bludgeoning device' (ab wheel) and confused a bartista!"@wcruz73 - "So, if I get fat over Thanksgiving weekend, blame Carla @ Newark TSA with fuchsia eyeliner! I left my ab wheel with her mouth. She needs it!"
Cruz confirmed the incident after being contacted by Metro Weekly.
