Authorities say that on June 10, 2019, a former TSA agent tricked a woman into showing her breast at Los Angeles International Airport as she went through the security check.

23-year-old Jonathon Lomeli was sentenced to 60-days in jail.

 

On Friday, the former TSA agent pleaded no contest to a felony charge of false imprisonment.

 

According to the young woman, whose identity was not released,  Lomeli told her he needed to look inside her bra to ensure she wasn’t hiding anything. Next, she told investigators that he pulled her pants away from her waist to look inside.

 

After Lomeli checked the young woman’s bra and pants, he told her he was taking her to a private room for further screening. However, once alone on the elevator, he told her he could continue the security screening there.

 

According to reports, Lomeli asked her “to show me your full breast” before looking down her pants again. Before releasing her, he told the woman she had a nice breast.

 

On February 6, 2020, Lomeli was arrested, and he resigned from his job that day.

 

In a statement on Friday, the California Attorney General’s Office said that Lomeli will be on probation for two years and must complete 52 classes to address sexual compulsion in addition to his jail term.

 

Lomeli is expected to start his jail term on February 19. He is now barred from working as any security guard and must pay restitution to the victim. The attorney general’s office said that the amount would be determined at a later hearing.

Attorney general Xavier Becerra said in a statement, “We all have the right to be treated with dignity and respect in all places, and no one is entitled to use a position of power to violate those rights.” He added, “Why can’t some men absorb that simple truth? This is 2021, not 1921.”

 

TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers said that the agency “does not tolerate illegal, unethical or immoral conduct.” She explained, “The actions involving a former T.S.A. employee are an affront to the hardworking and committed members of our workforce.”

Burger King tried it when the corporation’s official Twitter page sent out this tweet at 4 a.m. Monday: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

The fast food giant quickly followed up its troll tweet with:

“If they want to, of course. Yet only 20% of chefs are women. We’re on a mission to change the gender ratio in the restaurant industry by empowering female employees with the opportunity to pursue a culinary career.”

The tweet was meant to coincide with Women’s month in America, but Burger King’s followers said the tweet was in poor taste and called for BK to delete it.

But Burger King doubled down.

“Why would we delete a tweet that’s drawing attention to a huge lack of female representation in our industry, we thought you’d be on board with this as well? We’ve launched a scholarship to help give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career.

“Our ‘thought process’ is that women are shockingly underrepresented in our industry, and we thought it was time we did something about it. We’ve created a scholarship to give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career.”

BK’s followers were not impressed with the scholarship offer. One Twitter user accused BK of trying to run interference for the Royal Family after Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor’s disastrous tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.

Bruno Mars Takes To Twitter To Beg The Grammy’s For His Band ‘Silk Sonic’ To Perform

Bruno Mars isn’t too proud to beg, despite selling millions of records and winning countless awards.

The singer is requesting that his band, Silk Sonic, be added to the Grammy’s lineup at the last minute.

The “24K Magic” singer revealed earlier this month that he and Anderson.Paak are working on a Silk Sonic album. Their first song, “Leave the Door Open,” was released on Friday and will feature on the duo’s upcoming collaboration album.

After the Recording Academy announced the lineup for the upcoming award show, including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, and John Mayer, Mars took to Twitter to request that the lineup be changed.

According to Bruno, Silk Sonic will adhere to all safety protocols and even joked that they are willing to audition for the role.

He went on to say that the duo “hasn’t been able to play in a while” and that they “just want to sing.”

Mars told organizers that “as many covid tests as we need” will be conducted.

“I promise we won’t be extra. We just really want a gig again. I hope you’ll consider this request and give us the opportunity to shine. Love, Silk Sonic.”

Fans are likely to be surprised that the artist is begging to be added as an addition on the Grammy’s since his 2016 album, “24k Magic” earned him an album of the year, a record of the year for the title track, and at the 2018 Grammy’s he won song of the year for “That’s What I Like.”

Pepé Le Skunk scene cut from ‘Space Jam’ sequel

After canceling Dr. Seuss, the classic cartoon character Pepé Le Pew’s head is next on the chopping block.

The Looney Tunes character was dropped from the live animation sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy, starring LeBron James.

In one scene, Pepe, the bartender, flirts with Greice Santo’s character by kissing her arm which she rejects with an open handed slap.

Pepe then tells James and Bugs Bunny that Penelope Pussycat filed a restraining order against him. James responds that the skunk can’t go around kissing other cartoon characters without their consent.

Deadline states Santo was “upset” over the removal of the scene, according to her spokesperson.

“This was such a big deal for Greice to be in this movie. Even though Pepe is a cartoon character, if anyone was going to slap a sexual harasser like him, Greice wished it would be her,” said the spokesperson. “Now the scene is cut, and she doesn’t have that power to influence the world through younger generations who’ll be watching Space Jam 2, to let younger girls and younger boys know that Pepe’s behavior is unacceptable,” the statement read.”

Deadline.com reports that the French skunk’s scenes were cut after director Malcolm D. Lee took over from the movie’s first director Terence Nance.

Lee desexualized curvaceous Looney Tunes cartoon character Lola Bunny whose curves dominated scenes in the original Space Jam starring the g.o.a.t Michael Jordan.

Charles Blow, a columnist for the New York Times, complained on Twitter that Pepe was too overly amorous in old cartoons. He said Pepe “normalized rape culture” and convinced boys that “no doesn’t mean no.”

Blow shared an old cartoon clip on Twitter of Pepe forcibly restraining and kissing Penelope.
