Chewbacca vs TSA

It's not wise to upset a wookiee, as the TSA learned the hard way.

Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in Star Wars, was upset that the TSA detained his lightsaber-shaped cane while traveling after attending Denver Comic Con. But instead of using the Force, Mayhew used something even more effective: Twitter.

The 69-year-old actor tweeted about the incident through his account @TheWookieRoars, posting the picture you see above.

"Won't allow me through the airport with me cane!" he said. "Giant man need giant cane. Small cane snap like toothpick. Besides, my lightsaber is just cool. I'd miss it."
