Lindsay Lohan Says She Was ‘Racially Profiled’ at Heathrow for Wearing a Headscarf

+

Lindsay Lohan is a very famous white woman, but apparently that didn’t stop her from being “racially profiled” at Heathrow airport.

Let’s back up a little. As you may have noticed, Lindsay has been making some changes. She is allegedly converting to Islam. She has spending more and more time in Turkey. She has adopted a peculiar accent. She’s also been wearing a headscarf, which is what led to the supposed profiling.

Lohan, who had just been in Turkey to meet with the President Tayyip Erdoğan to discuss the refugee crisis (no comment needed), was flying from London to New York when she says she was “racially profiled for the first time in my life.” “[British Airport Security] opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing,” Lohan told Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. “…But then said ‘please take off your headscarf.’ And I did, it’s okay,” she says.

Thank god she survived that harrowing experience. Way to shed light on racial injustices, Lindsay!
