An Airport worker fired for returning a passenger a transcribed note that said: “You ugly!!!”
The June disturbance came to light this week after passenger Neal Strassner recovered security video during a public documents request and posted it to YouTube. The footage from Greater Rochester International Airport presents the worker handing Strassner the note after he passes through a metal detector.

Strassner said he didn’t think much of it and proceeded toward his gate. That’s when he tells the woman yelled out: “You gonna clear the note?”
Strassner said that when he did, the woman burst out smiling. He later accused to her supervisors.
The Transportation Security Administration says the Airport worker for a contractor. The agency said it has “zero patience for this type of behaviour.”
