Israeli model Bar Refaeli and other celebrities have been taking to their Twitter accounts to vent about uncomfortable encounters with TSA security staff at airports. 

I got a security 'pat down' by a woman at the airport that made me feel very uncomfortable and left no doubt about her sexual preferences, Refaeli tweeted on Wednesday 

It was only last week that Jennifer Hudson was photographed pulling uncomfortable faces while undergoing a security pat-down at LAX airport. The 30-year-old singer was snapped sticking out her tongue and wincing during the security check. 

Last year, Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke took a tweet about TSA staff a step further than Refaeli. I think I might have just gotten fingered by a TSA agent, she tweeted venting her anger before deleting it a few hours later, according to Hollywood.com.

While some might expect security screenings to be a breeze for celebrities, all these accounts suggest that even A-listers don't get special treatment. Either that, or they have lower tolerance levels for such formalities. 

Khloe Kardashian, another celebrity who was 'victim' of an uncomfortable screening, was called out by victim's rights advocates for saying TSA agents Basically are just raping you in public, Hollywood.com reported.

It's not only female celebrities that have felt uncomfortable. Last spring Will Wheaton tweeted, I got groped so aggressively by TSA at LAX just now; I never want to fly again. Not even my doctor touches my junk that much. F--k you, TSA.

NBC's Brian Williams described his TSA encounters like this: They go, they go right in. This new thing, they go right after Dave and the twins. ... Either you go in the little thing and you put your arms up and parade around, and somebody in a booth somewhere looks at you naked through your clothing, or you can get the prod of your schmegeggy.
