Holidaymakers have been warned to watch their words after two friends were refused entry to the US on security grounds after a tweet.

Before his trip, Leigh Van Bryan wrote that he was going to "destroy America".

He insisted he was referring to simply having a good time - but was sent home.

Trade association Abta told the BBC that the case highlighted that holidaymakers should never do anything to raise "concern or suspicion in any way".

The US Department for Homeland Security picked up Mr Bryan's messages ahead of his holiday in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old bar manager wrote a message to a friend on the micro-blogging service, saying: "Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America."

The Irish national told the Sun newspaper that he and his friend Emily Bunting were apprehended on arrival at Los Angeles International Airport before being sent home.

I understand the concern, I suppose, but I think they should let them go back. It was a very bad misunderstanding.

I sure would not like to DESTROY AMERICA.

Well, can't blame the US. Even if he wasn't a real terrorist, he seems like a douche.

Lmao, yes, because after all these years, this guy was going to walk in and be the one that destroys America. The US is like a cat that was tortured in its infancy. Sorry for the uncomfortable simile, but it's like that. Now you go anywhere near them with even the slightest wrong look and you'll be turned away or detained so as not to cause harm to them and their "freedom".

Sigh.

Man, they only wanted to go to America cos they thought it was the BOMB. It's all a bit ridiculous really, THEy get banned from America just for saying a common phrase meaning to have a good time. I wonder what the PRESIDENT thinks about all this?

I texted my friend about a girl I picked up the other night and the police arrested me.

Apparently "I wrecked that chick" is a pretty threatening phrase.

why dont they just use polygraph testing...someone says "seriously i was just joking" or "i do not plan to use these nail clippers as a deadly weapon" just polygraph them and move along...do it twice if they have to. Someone wanting to destroy a country isnt going to tell them before they get on the plane.

They sure aren't. They've already invaded and we don't even know it yet.

Think about it for a minute. How many brown people do you know?

Mind blown, eh?

Firstly, because it would be way to time consuming.
Secondly, polygraph tests are ridiculous.

Look, this is stupid and shouldn't have happened, and I'm not excusing it, but to be fair, this was kind of a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation. How bad do you think it would look if, for the sake of the argument, they actually did come to America, then blew something up, and were able to openly say online they were doing so, and they got through because they "Thought they were joking"?

Again, I'm not excusing this, it's stupid and overzealous. But there really wasn't a good way to go from their angle.

Then follow up on their claim

The good way is to use common sense and realise that it's quite clearly not serious.

If they wanted they could have investigated further rather than simply banning them from entering the country.
