Two twentysomething tourists visiting Los Angeles from the UK got an unpleasant surprise when they landed at LAX last week. Leigh Van Bryan and Emily Bunting were arrested and questioned for five hours by American Homeland Security officials for posting two supposed inflammatory tweets prior to their arrival. Van Bryan tweeted that not only was he going to “destroy America” he was going to “dig Marilyn Monroe up!”
Sounds bad…kind of. But when you actually look at the tweets in question, they’re obviously not meant to be taken literally.
