Morrissey is not one to keep his thoughts to himself, blasting a male security agent at San Francisco airport for “groping his privates”.

The British singer claims that he was sexually assaulted this week, blasting the officer in a post on True To You.

Morrissey stated that the officer “crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles.”

He was taking a flight to London on Monday, July 27.

He detailed the alleged attack in a lengthy post on True To You, an online Morrissey fanzine.

The 56-year-old claims the incident was witnessed by two British Airways staff members, who encouraged him to file a complaint.

The former The Smiths singer said, “Before I could gather my belongings from the usual array of trays I was approached by an “airport security officer” who stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles.  He quickly moved away as an older “airport security officer” approached.

He adds, “Luckily I was accompanied by two members of British Airways Special Services, who were horrified at the sexual attack and suggested that I lodge a complaint.”

Morrissey said he was reluctant to file a complaint, believing the guard would be protected and nothing would come of it.
