Former beauty queen and MTV VJ Susie Castillo took to her blog last week to complain about an invasive TSA pat down at the Dallas-Forth Worth airport. Now she's speaking out on a more official platform: the 'Today Show.'



Castillo spoke with Meredith Vieira on Tuesday about the pat downs, calling them a "violation of our rights."

Though she doesn't plan on pressing charges against the TSA, she called it a "slippery slope. How far are we going to let this go? Are rectal exams in our future?"

Castillo told Vieira she had received well over a thousand comments from fellow fliers--most offering positive feedback--after her video went viral.

WATCH Castillo's interview with Vieira below (and check out her original rant at the Dallas airport, below).

Enough already dont fly if you can't take the measures needed to protect the friendly skies things change and if it means walking through the airport naked so be it i'll be in that line.

Clearly, if we wish not to be sexually molested by TSA, we should not fly. It is not the fault of TSA, it is the fault of sissies who do not liked to be groped by strangers. I'm going to fly through Dallas as often as possible so I can see TSA molesting women!

Susie is consistent in her protests in that she points out the violation of our 4th amendment rights. She and others in this country have to fly to make a living (not all of us can have a personal bus at our disposal as John Madden did). Susie is not doing this to attract attention to herself. She is trying to make our Congress aware and add her voice to the millions of Americans who feel the same as she does! Those of us who see the increasingly invasive and ineffective "security" measures as a slippery slope appreciate her coming forward. Americans need to stand up and say enough!

TSA is inconsistent, and it is hard to believe the amount of radiations the machines give off is safe.

Ah......Lookin' at Susie Castillo, & knowing she has gone no where since her pagent, she probably loved the "attention" from the TSA agent in Dallas! The "Loser" is just trying to get back in the "media" & the public eye.............
