At the Los Angeles airport, a tourist was suspected of falsifying a passport because of a too “successful and hot” photo in the document. The girl was almost taken off the flight, and the vacation could be in jeopardy due to a possible arrest.
30-year-old passenger Alisha Marie spoke about a funny situation on social networks, The Sun drew attention to her story.
According to the source, popular American model and influencer Alisha Marie was trying to board her flight to Istanbul with a friend. In the video, the blogger says that she was stopped by security at the Los Angeles airport, because the employees did not believe that it was she who was depicted in the picture in her passport.
Fortunately, the girl still managed to convince law enforcement officers that she was not involved in falsifying documents, and still get on her flight.
She later warned her followers to never take too “hot” photos for their passports, as this could lead to them not being recognized.
“I have never been so humiliated in my life,” the American blogger signed her video.
