Fox News: Pop culture expert quoted on celebrity complaints over TSA enhanced pat downs

Release Date: December 10, 2010

An article on Fox News about reality stars like Khloe Kardashian who are comparing the new TSA security pat downs to "public rape," and the outrage rape crisis groups are expressing over the misuse of the word, quotes Elayne Rapping, professor emeritus of American studies. "We all have to go through this and it is pathetic for celebrities to think what is happening to them isn't happening to anyone else," she said. "These are low-profile celebrities probably trying to get attention."
