Popular youTuber JusReign, or Jasmeet Singh, was recently asked to remove his turban at a San Francisco area airport security check, where he was told that he wouldn't be allowed to board the plane unless he removed his turban for screening. After not finding anything amiss, he was forced to walk through the airport to retie his turban.

The comedian also stated that while he had no problem taking off his turban to follow protocols that would make them feel 'safe', the main issue was the fact that when he asked for a mirror to retie his turban in the private room he was taken to, the TSA told him to walk to the nearest restroom and do it, which, he felt, was insensitive on their part.

A similar upsetting incident had taken place with designer Waris Ahluwalia, where he was barred from boarding his flight unless he removed his turban. On this he had said, "That is not something that I would do in public...that's akin to asking someone to take off their clothes."

There has been no comment from the TSA on this yet.
