It’s not just First Lady Michelle Obama using Beyoncé’s celebrities to argue stances. In a recent congressional hearing, a Republican congressman from Alabama invoked the superstar’s name to make a point to TSA. What was he saying? Basically, stop patting down celebrities, TSA workers, ’cause as Rep. Mike Rogers put it, “I mean, she’s not going to blow a plane up.”

MTV News has the word:

The House Homeland Security Transportation Subcommittee met late last week to offer the TSA advice on improving its image and its suggestions to make the agency more efficient – it regularly receives well over a thousand complaints a month, many regarding courtesy and wait times – included an initiative to implement a more risk-based approach to security focusing on passengers the TSA has less information about.

According to Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Transportation Subcommittee, that means giving famous faces a pass, and he used Queen Bey as a prime example.

“There are certain people that are just so well-known that you’ve just got to use your common sense,” Rogers said. “Because if you start patting them down, people are going to say, ‘They’re patting down Beyonce.’ I mean, she’s not going to blow a plane up.”
