|Peter Mayhew stopped at Denver airport over lightsaber cane via @TheWookieeRoars|
On his way home to Boyd Texas, the 7 foot tall actor had his cane seized by US Transportation Security Adminstration staff at Denver Airport and tweeted “Won’t allow me through the airport with me cane! Giant man need giant cane. Small cane snap like toothpick. Besides, my lightsaber is just cool. I’d miss it.”
Fans of the 69-year-old actor, who needs a cane to walk bombarded the TSA in protest.
Eventually, they let Mayhew board the plane as he tweeted, "Magic words to TSA are not please or thank you, it’s Twitter. Cane released to go home."
He later tweeted with his cane
Astronomer Ray Sanders tweeted “TSA just learned Star Wars lesson #1: Let the Wookie win."
Chris James added: “TSA doesn’t mess when you roll with a Wookie and a Lightsaber.”
Are you glad Mayhew got hi cane back? Do you think the TSA should have tried to take it?
