TSA employees have a private Facebook group where they fly around with passengers in rough, homophobic and racist language.
NBC Washington unveiled the existence of the Facebook page called TSA Breakroom of which 18,000 TSA employees are members.
& # 39; Fucking idiots of the world that make my job harder & # 39 ;, wrote a TSA employee on the now deleted page. & # 39; I hope your plane explodes. & # 39;
Employees at US airports use the page to complain about management, share stories about their day, and post memes and photos that make fun of passengers.
& # 39; How the hell do these passengers wake up and dress & # 39; Arrive in the morning and come to the airport without being killed? & # 39; read another post seen by NBC Washington. Because these people are pretty stupid. & # 39;
A private Facebook group called TSA Breakroom has been uncovered
The page has 18,000 members who are TSA employees from across airports in the United States where they air their work
Many of the complaints are littered with crude, racist, homophobic and transphobic comments about passengers
This message from the now-removed private group complained to TSA management that employees were obliged to respect the gender identity of passengers
An angry employee wrote a long post about integrity and complained that TSA management requires employees to respect the gender identity of passengers.
& # 39; So given what we know about the definition of integrity, I would like to say that the TSA / DHS is not really worth the term integrity, & # 39; wrote the employee. & # 39; Why? By forcing its employees to go along with this & # 39; & # 39; gender identity & # 39; & # 39; nonsense. & # 39;
The employee went on: & # 39; Lying to yourself is one thing Lying to others is something else, but forcing others to lie, to do their job, or to keep their job, is a completely different evil. & # 39;
Another employee told a story about how they inspected bags and noticed that a passenger left a note asking TSA agents not to touch anything and to contact her instead.
The employee said they had asked the boss who said: & that note, touch everything & # 39 ;.
Duidelijk I am clearly not the subordinate type, so what should I do? I TOUCH EVERYTHING in that bag, & the employee wrote. & # 39; To give an extra dash of small ones, the cow clearly took me there … I took half a pile of inspection notifications and threw it in a bag and continued on my little day. & # 39;
Other employees post memes, while someone posts a picture of a little girl in a pram while they laugh at her mate.
A TSA spokesperson confirmed the existence of the page, but said the page & # 39; is not affiliated with TSA & # 39; and that the agency & # 39; does not check the site & # 39;

While NBC Washington kept the identity of the employees anonymous, some revealed the airports they were working at, covering the US.
Employees revealed that they worked at Salt Lake City Airport, Dulles International Airport in Virginia and an airport in Baltimore, Maryland.
A TSA employee made racist comments about a group of Chinese passengers and wrote: & I have to buy a Lotto ticket! We just screened a whole group of Chinese tourists without having to call a single check! & # 39;
Many have responded to that message and said how & # 39; impossible & # 39; that was.
And although the messages can only be seen by members of the group, several employees shared some of the most disturbing messages with NBC Washington.
Former TSA employee Monica Stoddard, who worked for the Washington DC office for 11 years, told the outlet that she is a member of the group but not on it.
& # 39; The morale was not good, & # 39; she said. & # 39; (Employees) have no outlet to say what is going on and express their thoughts. & # 39;
She added that the page is part of a larger moral problem for employees with TSA.
