Bea Miller Blames United Airlines for Almost Missing Her Flight Because of Her Dog

Bea Miller ran into trouble with the TSA at the airport because of her dog, the singer tweeted Friday.

The 19-year-old was removed from the TSA (Transport Security Administration) line. She said it was "for having a 7lb carry on [sic] dog, told to stand around and wait somewhere else for 30 minutes, and then had EVERY single item i [sic] had with me get wiped down and inspected, causing me to almost miss miss [sic] my flight," her tweet to United Airlines read.

She was in the TSA line for 35 minutes before this happened, "so this entire process took me over an hour and i was not given a real explanation," she wrote in a follow-up tweet. "Insane that you have killed animals on your flights due to incompetence yet you're worried about me being dangerous because of mine."

A 10-month-old puppy died of suffocation in an overhead compartment on a United Airlines flight from Houston to New York in March.

United Airlines followed up with Miller Friday morning. "Please know that we do not oversee the policies and procedures that are enforced by the TSA," read the tweet. The airline told Miller to reach out to the TSA "directly" for "further details."

"I was informed i had to wait for a united [sic] representative, which is why i was removed from the original tsa [sic] line i was in," Miller wrote in her reply. United Airlines' next messaged asked her to continue the conversation in a private message.

"Small pets are allowed through the checkpoint," according to the guidelines on the TSA's website. "Please check with your airline for their policy."

"Effective April 24, 2018, all customers traveling with in-cabin pets must check in with a United customer service representative in the airport lobby to receive a brightly colored yellow bag tag to attack to their pet's kennel," according to United Airlines' website. The airline also requires reservations to be made in advance for in-cabin pets, and that is "booked on a space-available basis," according to the restrictions in place.

Miller's fans can see her in one of 10 episodes of MTV's celebrity edition of Fear Factor this summer, The Futon Critic reported in June. Miller's episode, "Music Star ShowDown," also includes pop band Timeflies and musician Drake Bell. The series premiered July 17, and her episode does not have an air date yet.

The singer is also part of American Eagle's Ne(X) Level Jeans campaign, Business Wire reported Thursday. The campaign includes a "Make Moves" video featuring real customers in Ne(X) Level jeans and #AExME Artists. The latter follows hot new artists, including Miller, Bibi Bourelly, Jade Bird, Lewis Capaldi and Trinidad Cardona, in a digital documentary series about their journeys.
