Chelsea Peretti, Jordan Peele Get Huge Honeymoon Scare From TSA

According to an extremely irritated comedian, the TSA managed to nearly ruin an otherwise perfect honeymoon.

Chelsea Peretti, of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fame, tweeted out that her husband, “Key & Peele’s” Jordan Peele, was stopped by security because his passport wasn’t in the kind of shape befitting someone embarking upon International travel.

The two comedians weren’t exactly laughing as they discovered that just one of the pair would actually get to enjoy post-nuptial frivolity in Europe.

Peretti has since deleted tweets that admonished security for calling into question documents that kept Peele from traveling immediately upon arrival at the airport.

Page Six was able to quote the now deleted text: “Big shoutout to the LAX employee who barred my husband from getting on our flight (our honeymoon) (because) his passport page was a little worn. Solo honeymoon should be cool too!”

Peretti continued, in quotes taken from now deleted tweets: “He (airport staff) also looked at me as I began to shed some tears & was like, ‘Believe me, things happen for a reason.’ So beautiful! He also was like (encouraging voice) ‘There’s an 80% chance he’ll make it.’”

It’s an inauspicious start for newlyweds who were happy to highlight their upcoming nuptials for a ad campaign recently.

They should have just stayed in a yurt.

Yahoo! News reports that Peele did eventually make it on the plane, saving a major life celebration from complete disaster.

If Peele did make the flight, it would explain why Peretti decided to delete her Twitter vitriol. Taking a flight to London has a way of calming the nerves as the promise of a great time sinks in.

Unfortunately, we don’t have an image of Peele’s passport to see exactly what a “worn” page looks like.

This just furthers our paranoia of keeping the document in pristine condition.
