Gun T-Shirt Deemed a Security Risk

Talk about zero-tolerance!

Rock star Kelly Jones, lead singer of the chart-topping band Stereophonics, was halted this week while trying to board a flight at London’s Heathrow Airport.

The reason: his T-shirt was deemed a security risk.

Yes, his T-shirt.

Jones was already having trouble with security, with metal in his clothing setting off repeated alarms.

But he was truly startled when a security inspector told him that his T-shirt — illustrated with a pistol with a flame coming out of the top — was inappropriate for flying.

“The guy takes me aside and says, ‘You know you’re not supposed to wear that,'” Jones said.

“I said, ‘Not supposed to wear what?’ I honestly didn’t have a clue.”

The security man pointed to the star’s T-shirt.

Jones was startled. “I was like, ‘What am I going to do with a gun on a T-shirt?” I mean, it’s not as if my T-shirt was loaded.”
