A well-known character was recently deemed a security threat and disarmed at Heathrow Airport in London.
A Woody doll — from the popular “Toy Story” movies — reportedly had his tiny six-shooter confiscated by security staff at the airport. The doll reportedly belongs to a father, who says he has traveled the world with Woody taking pictures for his son.
The dad posted a photo of Woody’s tiny gun allegedly being examined at Heathrow Airport on Reddit, and it quickly went viral.
“I have travelled the world with Toy Story’s Woody, taking pics for my son,” he wrote on Reddit. “At Heathrow, security just confiscated his ‘weapon’, keep the world safe boys.”
The Woody doll is usually not sold with a toy gun, according to the Daily Mail. It’s unclear where the tiny gun actually came from.
Heathrow Airport refused to comment on the incident when contacted by the Daily Mail. The airport argued security rules are created by the Department For Transport.
When the publication contacted the agency, a spokesperson said the department doesn’t “comment on specific incidents or details of our security regime.”
However, the spokesperson said airports can “use their discretion to remove any item being carried in hand luggage when they believe it may be perceived as a threat.”
