New York Giants defensive tackle A.J. Francis called out TSA after his mother's ashes were spilled in his luggage Monday.

In a profane Twitter rant, Francis posted a photo of the spilled remains and accused the agency of being careless.

WARNING: The following tweets contain strong language.

TSA responded to Francis with an apology, saying that officers shouldn't have opened the container.
"Our officers are trained to handle your carry-on and checked property with care. Out of respect for the deceased, under no circumstances should the container be opened. Please accept our apologies and our condolences," the agency tweeted.

However, Francis dismissed the apology before telling some media outlets that he wouldn't comment on the situation, according to ESPN.

Airport security lines are at an all-time high coming off of the busy Fourth of July travel period and TSA is currently in the process of recruiting thousands of new security officers, canine handlers and other positions to combat the delays.
