Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents who are forced to work without pay are reportedly playing loud rap music that contains explicit language and misogynistic lyrics at arriving passengers in New York's JFK Airport.
Several passengers complained about the loud music that plays over loudspeakers. One TSA agent played uncensored rap music by Drake, Travis Scott and Kanye West.
"We're living in a simulation," one passenger tweeted on Wednesday. Another passenger said they felt like they were "in The Twilight Zone" after hearing Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode" echoing through JFK Airport.
The passenger noted TSA's relaxed employee standards.
TSA has officially stopped giving a fuck. SICKO MODE (dirty version) is playing on the speakers at JFK lmfaooo

A skeleton crew of TSA agents show up to work at the nation's airports daily, despite not receiving a paycheck in 25 days.
President Trump ordered the government shutdown on Dec. 22 after Congress failed to approve his request for $5.7 billion to build a wall at the southern border.
Hundreds of workers have called out sick and some federal employees quit their jobs after Trump warned the shutdown could continue for months or even a year.
An unofficial poll of federal workers shows the majority of workers oppose the government shutdown.
The partial government shutdown comes at the worst time for the economy and threatens to cancel Super Bowl LIII, which is scheduled for Sunday, February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
In an act of defiance on Monday, conservative activist Laura Loomer and several illegal aliens scaled the fence at Nancy Pelosi's Napa Valley, Calif. mansion and wine vineyard after the House Speaker called the border wall an "immorality."
Loomer and the illegal immigrants pitched a Sanctuary tent in Pelosi's yard, spray painted with large red lettering that read: "IMMORALITY". The activists called for Pelosi to tear down her fence around her home. They also hung pictures of victims who were killed by illegal immigrants.
After police escorted Loomer and her crew off Pelosi's property, Loomer said, "I'm so confused. I thought everyone was welcomed here."
Loomer noted that the government spends $180 billion per year on welfare, social services and free housing for illegal immigrants.
By comparison, $5 billion for a wall sounds like a bargain.
