Singer posts fresh statement...

Morrissey is maintaining a hectic touring schedule with the singer recently selling out Madison Square Garden.

However a trip through San Francisco International Airport didn't seem to go as planned - the singer alleges that he was sexually assaulted by an airport securiy officer.

In a note on True To You the singer states that the General Manager On Duty, "stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles.”

Morrissey confronted the individual:

Apart from "that's just your opinion", he would not comment, even though, since the penis and testicles were mine and no one else's, then my opinion must surely have some meaning. But, of course, what the airport security officer was saying was: your opinion will never count in the eyes of the law. The words "that's just your opinion" volunteered themselves from this 'officer's' mouth before he had even heard the question. He knew he could be confronted, but he also knew that he could never be challenged (even though the entire incident is most certainly on CCTV camera).

The TSA provided a response to Rolling Stone:

"Upon review of closed circuit TV footage, TSA determined that the supervised officer followed standard operating procedures in the screening of this individual."
