Gabrielle Union Hair, Actress Gabrielle Union at the premiere of “Think Like A Man” at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on February 9, 2012 in Hollywood. Gabrielle Union’s hair is fly – but it almost grounded her at the airport on Wednesday.
The actress said her “weave got ‘flagged’ by the bodyscan at security,” on Twitter. “No lie. TSA required a hair pat-down.”
The “Good Deeds” star, 39, expressed surprise that the “black female TSA agent” who stopped her was so naïve about her weave.
“If human hair and thread sets off the body scanner, a lot of folks just ended up on the ‘watch list,’” added Union, who dates NBA player Dwayne Wade, 30. “It’s a weave, not t*rror*sm.”
Despite the hairy incident, Union was finally allowed to board the plane.
“Hopefully my weave doesn’t cause turbulence,” she joked in another tweet. “It’s clearly very powerful.”
