Lohan was on “Good Morning Britain” on Tuesday morning, when she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she was stopped in a Heathrow Airport security line while traveling from Turkey to the United States.
She said “When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing a headscarf and I got stopped at the airport and racially profiled for the first time in my life. She opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing, but then said, ‘Please, but take off your headscarf.’ ”
Lindsay Lohan said she was wearing a headscarf out of “respect” because she was just returning from Turkey, where she had met the President.
She also said that in that moment, she could only imagine how other women felt who weren’t comfortable taking of their headscarves.
