Alec Baldwin is on yet another rant — but this time, it has nothing to do with the paparazzi.

The Hollywood actor has taken to Twitter to bash the Transportation Security Administration after security agents dared to go where few outside his family have gone: his 5-month-old daughter’s body.

Or did they?

The Daily Mail reported agents gave his daughter a quick pat-down at an airport in the Bahamas, as the family — Mr. Baldwin, his wife and daughter, Carmen — were en route to New York.

In a tweet — the now-typical means the actor uses to express his outrage over various issues and incidents — Mr. Baldwin wrote: “Flying from Nassau, Bahamas 2 NY. TSA ‘random selects’ my 5 month old daughter 4 a pat down. I am not kidding.”

And the hashtag? “#travelinginUSisadisgrace.”

NBC contacted the Department of Homeland Security for comment and was told that the TSA doesn’t screen travelers in the Bahamas — only in the United States. The outrageous pat-down was apparently conducted at the hands of Nassau Airport Authority officials who work for the Bahamas, The Daily Mail reported.
