  1. Matt Sayles/Invision/AP -RRB- JANE:

  4. Tommy Fury:

    I was told by the homeland security that my ESTA (US Electronic System for Travel Authorization) had been denied, and I wasn’t able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know. I can stand here and say I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong, and I have no clue why I’m not allowed to travel to the USA, i don’t know why this has happened today, it’s a massive shock to me and my whole team. Obviously, it’s a matter that needs to be resolved. It’s government issues. It’s a lot bigger than the fight right now, and I’m just trying to get it solved, but I just wanted to let you all know where it was at.
