PHOENIX – Apparently Kevin Bacon was flagged down by TSA not for an autograph but because he had a sweet potato in his bag. Definitely not something I would expect especially for a guy with the last name ‘Bacon’.
Bacon went on Jimmy Fallon show to discuss his upcoming new role as a FBI character on City on a Hill.
On the show, Fallon pulled up this Instagram post from Kevin Bacon and asked what this post all about.
Bacon explains on the Fallon show that he had a long flight to LA and he needed a snack, so he saw the sweet potato and took it with him. Question, how would one just snack on a sweet potato?
TSA does allow food on flights including fruits and vegetables, but something shaped like that potato could of been the reason for the pullover.
