A man revealed the embarrassing moment airport staff found a humiliating "d**k pic" on his phone.
James Slade was passing through security at Heathrow Airport when he used his phone camera to check his hair – but in a now-viral clip on TikTok, he explained how the innocent action led to his total humiliation.
“You actually can’t comprehend how embarrassed I am about this story,” he said.

“So I am standing there in the [security section] with my phone like this to check my cap with my hair to see if it was all still in place, because I have to look hot for the friends I am about to see.
“When all of a sudden the lady at the bag check screams at me saying ‘you can’t be taking pictures over here’."
Slade told the staff member that he wasn't taking a picture and was just using the camera to check his hair – but his efforts to explain away the problem were in vain.
“I get to the front of the queue to put all my bags through; they go through fine and then when everything comes out on the other side I go to take my luggage and the woman says ‘I’ll be having that thanks very much’.

“The manager comes up to me and he’s like ‘look I am really sorry but I am going to have to go through all of your stuff’. I said ‘yeah fine, they thought I was taking a picture but I wasn’t'."
Slade's bags were searched and given the all clear, but the manager then asked to check his phone as well.
“Here’s the punch line… He looks at my phone – no picture, it’s all fine. But then he’s like I am going to have to look at your recently deleted pictures.
“So I open up my recently deleted pictures and what is there staring at this guy in the face is the gammiest f***ing d**k pic I have ever seen in my life."
Slade was eager to explain that the incriminating image wasn't of his own manhood.

“My friend sent me it the day before which I deleted because it was repulsive. Literally, the grossest thing you have ever seen in your whole life – and the guy at security looks at it, looks at me and just goes ‘enjoy your holiday.’
“He thought that pic was mine. You literally couldn’t make that s*** up. Only me, only me.”
The video, which has since been watched more than 100,000 times, garnered plenty of attention, with viewers commenting their own horror airport experiences.
One wrote: "Hell no that’s happening to me!"
Meanwhile another chimed in: "I'm not sure they have the powers to do what they did," and a third wrote: "I’ve also been screamed at by Heathrow Security for taking a pic. They watched me delete the pic and threatened to take my phone."
Others explained why the staff may have responded so dramatically.
“The fear is that pics and videos can be used to map out where security cameras are etc to cause more undetected and untraceable havoc in an attack,” one person wrote.
