DEE SNIDER Accuses AVIANCA AIRLINES Of 'Sharing Sensitive Information' And 'Judging' His Daughter's Appearance

May 13, 2019

Dee Snider claims to have reported Avianca Airlines to Twitter for "sharing sensitive information" after he accused the airline of improperly denying his daughter her airline tickets.

On Saturday, the TWISTED SISTER frontman, who lives part time in Belize, tweeted that the second-oldest airline in the world and national carrier of Colombia since 1919 refused to allow Cheyenne Snider to board her flight because her passport was "not on point" and was "too 'wrinkled.'" He went on to accuse Avianca of "clearly exhibiting bias" toward his "very goth-looking daughter" because of her appearance.

In response, Avianca tweeted: "About the case of the passenger Cheyenne Jean Snider, we report she was not allowed to board her flight because her passport, identity document to travel was deteriorated. Even the passenger admitted she had put it into the washing machine.

"As is stipulated in international regulations, it is necessary for the passengers to present their original documents, which has to be valid and in good condition to be able to travel. Otherwise, the airline is authorized to not allow the boarding.

"Avianca has always been rigorous and demanding with the presentation and the good conditions of travel documents. As an airline we are regulated by international aeronautical authorities and any omission of this rule could bring on a fine by not complying with the regulations."

A short time later, Dee took to Twitter once again to call out Avianca for including personal information about his daughter, writing: "HEY @Avianca @AviancaEscucha I JUST REPORTED YOU TO @Twitter FOR SHARING SENSITIVE INFORMATION! TU PERRICITO DE CACA! #AVIANCASUCKS"

The rocker followed it up a short time later by tweeting a blurry photo of what appears to be an Avianca check-in counter at an unspecified airport, along with the following message: "CHECK OUT HARD WORKING @Avianca EMPLOYEES! NOTHING BETTER TO DO BUT JUDGE MY DAUGHTER'S APPEARANCE & DENY HER BOARDING! CHARGED US $150 FOR CANCELLING TOO! THANKS @AmericanAir @Delta @TSA FOR SUPPORTING MY DAUGHTER & CONFIRMING @Avianca WAS BEING BIASED! #AVIANCASUCKS!"

The 26-year-old Cheyenne is the youngest of Dee's four children with wife Suzette, to whom he's been married since October 1981.

Like her siblings — Jesse (born 1982),Shane (born 1988) and Cody (born 1989) — Cheyenne was featured in the TV show "Growing Up Twisted" which followed the life of Dee and his family through their everyday lives.

Dee is continuing to play shows in support of his latest solo album, "For The Love Of Metal", which was released last July via Napalm Records.

TWISTED SISTER called it quits in 2016 after completing a farewell 40th-anniversary tour.
