In a strange news story, a 10-year-old was forced to turn his shirt inside-out at the airport in New Zealand when security officers decided that it might cause anxiety among the passengers. The shirt didn't contain profanity, a MAGA slogan or hate speech: it simply depicted a very realistic-looking snake slithering up the boy's shirt! Click to see what it looks like.
While I am glad the security team was looking out for their passengers' comfort and safety (could you imagine them doing this in the United States?), I also wonder about how legit it is regarding the shirt itself being such a stress-inducer. I've seen so many worse shirts that gave me stress but I guess people may have mistaken this for a real snake!
Do you think the shirt would've caused anxiety on the plane?
