Model Daisy Fuentes Marx questioned why she was allegedly forced to remove her sweater at a security checkpoint while others in line, including a woman in a “full burka or head wrap,” were not:Anybody still remember Daisy Fuentes?
Daisy Fuentes (born November 17, 1966) is a Cuban-American television host, comedian and model. Fuentes broke barriers as MTV's first Latina VJ (signed to MTV and MTV Latin America simultaneously), and as Revlon's first Latina spokesperson to be signed to a worldwide contract.
Hey @TSA The fact I HAVE to remove my sweater (which was only covering a tank top), but the woman in front of me was NOT required to remove any part of her full burka or head wrap (which covered her entire head & face) is absolute bullshit. How are we all ok with this? #fact— Daisy Fuentes Marx (@DaisyFuentes) December 10, 2018
In responses to various Twitter users, she made clear that it’s not a religious issue for her but one of security where some travelers are exempt from the rules:
My comment clearly was not about Muslims or minorities.

Isn't she important and rich enough to get TSA PreCheck or Global Entry? We're doing it. Maybe the woman in the burka did too.
