Kim Kardashian and Kanye West caused a stir at JFK airport in New York after they bypassed security on their way home from celebrating Carnival in Brazil.

The expecting couple cleared customs and baggage claim before being led “through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight" by an airline employee, TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein told reporters, the Associated Press reported

After TSA realized the breach in security procedures had occurred, they forced KimYe to disembark their flight to be screened privately, People reported.

Their "too cool for security" escapade was blamed not on the superstars but on the "star struck" airlines employee who helped them skip the arduous business of being screened, according to Gawker.

The incident delayed the flight to L.A. for an hour – a small price to pay for Kim and Kanye making it home, right?
