Celeb lawyer Gloria Allred has accepted her next high profile assignment: defending a Texas woman whose nipple rings were removed by airport security. Mandi Hamlin, 37, the plaintiff, is demanding "an apology by federal security agents and a civil rights investigation," after officials forced her to remove her nipple rings before boarding a flight. Hamlin was taken behind a curtain to remove the rings, but one didn't come out easily, so officials gave her pliers to remove it. Says Allred: "The conduct of TSA was cruel and unnecessary...The last time that I checked a nipple was not a dangerous weapon." Tell that to Janet Jackson, lady! [AP]
