A Rochester, New York airport employee was fired after she was caught on tape giving a traveler a disturbing handwritten note.
According to Rochester First, traveler Neal Strassner was passing through a security checkpoint at Rochester International Airport when the worker handed him a random note. She asked Strassner if he was going to open the note after he started walking away from the checkpoint. Strassner opened the note, saying “You Ugly!!” while the worker started laughing at him.
Strassner noted that the incident happened in late June and received the tape recently as evidence against the worker.

The airport reported that the employee worked for VMD Corp., an independent security company based in Virginia. However, the TSA released a statement in light of the incident.
“TSA holds contractors to the highest ethical standards and has zero tolerance for this type of behavior. This instance, which involved contract employee, was investigated immediately upon receiving the complaint by the traveler. The employee has since been terminated by the contractor.”
Security footage also showed the employee writing notes to give to other passengers. It is unclear how many passengers received the notes.
