Alec Baldwin claims his five-month-old baby was subjected to a pat-down at a Bahamas airport by TSA security.
The 55-year-old actor was flying home from a holiday with his wife Hilaria and their daughter Carmen, the LA Times reports.
He tweeted: "Flying from Nassau, Bahamas 2 NY. TSA 'random selects' my 5 month old daughter 4 a pat down. I am not kidding. #travelinginUSisadisgrace"
But a senior Homeland Security official told NBC News that the TSA does not screen passengers in the Bahamas nor pats down any child under the age of 12, as the Bahamas are not part of the United States.
Alec tweeted: "I wrote re security at Bahamas airport, US TSA or no, to highlight over- zealous practices."
After being corrected by his followers, he added: "But thank God 4 that brigade of geniuses..."
