    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Someone has got some explaining to do after apparently allowing the celebrity duo dubbed “Kimye” to bypass security at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

    The Transportation Security Administration said it’s investigating a breach of security protocol involving Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

    Kardashian and West landed at JFK on Tuesday from Brazil and went through customs.

    Then an American Airlines employee apparently took them through a “back way,” bypassing security in order to help them make their connecting domestic flight.

    TSA officers learned what happened, caught up with Kardashian and West at the gate and screened them for contraband in the jetway, causing a delay of almost an hour.

    “This was a lapse in judgment by one of our employees. We’re working closely with the TSA and speaking to the individuals involved to better understand what happened. The flight in question departed JFK an hour late. It was delayed in part because of this issue and in part because a number of connecting bags were late arriving to the aircraft,” American Airlines said in a statement.

    A source at the TSA said Kardashian and West did nothing wrong, but the American Airlines representative who took them past security didn’t follow regulations and now is under investigation.

    Travelers were stunned to hear about the security breach, and were disgusted to find out it involved celebrity special treatment.

    “What if there’s a terrorist out there’s that’s famous and nobody knows about and they get off easy?” Erikka Suarez of the Bronx told CBS 2′s Hazel Sanchez.

    “Celebrities can be anything. They can be criminals, too,” added Mandel Perodin of East Hampton.

    Set aside the obvious here, of course celebrities should not get special treatment, even members of the congress go through the screening.

    Something here made me think, is this really about security and preventing terrorism or is the whole idea to make everyone equally miserable and inconvenienced?

    When can we go to a logical system like the Israelis use or some sort of adapted version of it, it is actually effective.

    Well duh! It don't cost billions, it don't control the sheep and its stereotyping! What, that sweaty, swarthy nervous dark skinned guy who keeps looking all around and fidgeting? Let him right thru, there is a suspicious old lady in a wheel chair we gotta check out and OH crap is that a toddler? Strip search.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
