Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan knows what it's like to be a minority in America. The 30-year-old Caucasian actress recently converted to Islam. She says she was wearing a headscarf in accordance with her religious faith when she left Turkey in January.

Lohan said she arrived at Heathrow Airport in London, where she took a connecting flight to JFK Airport in New York. President Donald Trump's Executive Order banning Muslims traveling from terror-linked countries was in effect.

"I was flying to New York recently and I was wearing a headscarf and I got stopped at the airport and racially profiled. First time in my life," she told U.K.'s Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

"She (security) opened my passport and saw 'Lindsay Lohan' and starting immediately apologizing … but then said 'please take off your headscarf'. I did, I mean it's OK, but what scared me was, that moment, how would another women who doesn't feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me."

Lohan said the experience was "jarring" and she was freaked out by it.

"It was weird. I'm from New York, I was born and raised there and I was a little intimidated."

Lohan defended wearing the headscarf in New York, where tensions are still high following the chaotic response to Trump's order.

"I was doing it because I was leaving Turkey and out of respect for certain countries (traditions) I feel comfortable acting the same way as the other women... that’s just a personal respect issue that I have so I had it on."

    Whatever, you did it to make the news. Go sit down.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    She looks awful.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I respect everyone's culture and religion. But I continue to tell "My People", this is NOT our fight. We've been getting gunned down and killed by police (& by our fellow Sista's & Brother's) like dogs in the street (for decades). Where has the Muslim community been to support "Us" in our continued crisis? IJS

    She wants that Ariel part so bad...?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Lindsay is a non-motherfukking factor. Point blank, period.

  • goat

    What race was she profiled as? Because being a Muslim or practicing Islam is not a race.

  • kekeb

    Her face

  • hottlanta

    Wow she is lucky she hasn't never been drug or alcohol profiled she would have never gotten on the plane. Even though she is a mess publically she can still get a bank loan with no problems. White people problems.

  • KDub

    She been reportedly converted for over a year now. I saw this and looked it up. Stories date back to late 2015. I am on the fence. Especially if she truly did convert. I dont want to be insensitive to Islam. But then she still a cave demon. #conflicted

    I said late 2015. This early 2015. I mean I GUESS. I truly just think she is studying different religions etc. trying to find her way. I get it. I truly do feel bad if she is trying to get into it and folks are dismissing her bc she is...well Lindsay Lohan.

  • missmiami305

    The sad truth

  • Renee26

    Bih you got profiled...not racially profiled. You TRIED it!

  • goat

    We got to look at as we are BLACK before anything else. Why put anything else before that? No religion, no gender should come before being BLACK.

  • Strong White Woman

    I'd be on the fence too after reading this. Carrying it on her way to/from community service. Screams photo op. Or just more of the same when it comes to cave demons. They get to try other peoples culture/religion on like a fashionable pair of shoes. Then dump it when said fashionable shoes go out of style. I don't like that. My Black is not returnable/refundable. No store credit. No nothing. Must be nice?

  • Quitedeliteful

    She probably is trying to find her way spiritually. If you've been drinking and drugging for as long as she has at some point you've got to try to become centered.

  • Chardonnai

    Girl Bye.........................................

  • Renee26

    Right! She's still white regardless of her religion but I do respect that she took the time to reflect on how other woman who wear the hijab feel when they are asked to remove them just to travel. One of my white co-workers is traveling to Saudi Arabia and she is studying up on their customs. She has her outfits ordered already.

  • hi-liter

    Now this one needs to sat her azz down somewhere. In the last 2 years she has been "acting" like a British woman...........I cant believe LiLo is 30.....I just cant.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Such a foolish girl.

  • Strong White Woman

    Did you see the story about that white lady that said she was racially discriminated against at CNN? Because one guy who I'm assuming was black called another guy I'm assuming was black "brother", but was "rude" to her? First case of blatant racism she's ever experienced according to her? The joys, and sometime hardships? Of being yt?

  • Renee26

    That's how I feel every time I see a yt person in a dashiki...it's just not right

  • KDub

    This too. But she was looking at ALL religions it sounds like too from that article. She was raised Catholic. Looked into Judaism. IDK. Why make it about Islam in 2015 for court. Its not like it out of all religions has a good connotation you know? They TRULY are hated.

  • MissyJ

    I told y'all Lindsay is moneysexual, it's all she knows. She was messing around with a Saudi rich dude then and since her engagement is off she's probably back with him

  • Renee26

    Amongst other things....people tend to turn to religion for peace

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • Renee26

    Ok!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I was flying to New York recently and I was wearing a headscarf ------- record skip....so she just NOT going to even attempt to address her "headscarf" properly? Not even a little bit.......um okay!

  • KDub

    Exactly this too. What article said. And Im not knocking ANYONE who has to find their peace. Via religion, meditating, whatever. #EveryoneHasTheirSomething

  • Chardonnai

    or wearing dreds. It pisses me off

  • Renee26

    In my city the (black) Muslims have been trying to help the inner city for decades. The Mosque are right in the ghettos and they reach out to the public in a positive way...while they sell incense, oils, and bean pies.

  • missmiami305

    Grinds my gears! #CultureVultures

  • Renee26

    Yes! Hair won't even stay twisted...always stinky and dirty

  • SummerBaby

    She looks old asf. ? Most women that wear a hijab are not comfortable removing it in public....so what would happen if they refused? So I would be asked to take my head wrap off?

  • missmiami305

    Great point?

  • Justlooknout

    snorts....CAVE DEMON...

    HUGS you neck.

    We gonna catch up and drink and PARTY and Party next time I see you ...

  • Renee26
  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    This a is also true in my neighborhood/city. Mosques feed folks every Sunday,- full meals, fruit and water, plenty of them have educational services for people- computer classes, resume writing assistance with job searching, etc. Not all, but a lot of them do work in their communities. And the racial makeup is mixed.

  • Strong White Woman

    My exact facial expression when I saw that. I swear? Let me go see if I can find the video. Hold please?

  • Renee26

    Right...I would think that would be disrespectful to ask of them.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I think in airports (where they can mandate it), they are taken into a separate room if they are asked to remove it, for identifying purposes only.

  • SummerBaby

    Extremely

  • SummerBaby

    Do they have to keep it off?

  • Freeriah

    I was going to say she looks old AF too.

  • Pebbles

    I was gonna say that she didn't have to take the khimar ( head scarf) off , normally she could've asked to be taken in private room to be searched & even then they don't ask you to remove your head scarf .. Your patted down , they use their little waan, etc or she could have easily went through the body scan ..

    She is new & she doesn't know

  • FlyMiss

    She knows its called a hijab.. girl bye

  • SummerBaby

    ???

  • Renee26

    Like a strip search...I feel bad for them. The xray scanner should allow them to see through the head wrap

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    No, once identified, they keep it on and a female officer does the checking. Once it is checked and she is id'ed, she is escorted out of the room with it on and intact.

  • Strong White Woman

    This video contains language that is NSFW. During her confession about her "racist experience" she called out a YouTube commentator. I'm guessing this man has critiqued her in the past so she said what is his critique on this?! Well, he let her know...

    Thanks!

  • SummerBaby

    Thanks!!

  • Chardonnai

    SHES ONLY 30. She looks every bit of 45. Hustle hard face ass...

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Not all the time, it can depend on the fabric, some women use the pin to hold it in place and not all women have taken their id or passport picture with it on.

  • Renee26

    LMAO he is cutting her up!!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I'm floored lmbao

  • Zizzle

    Islam is not a race, she experienced religious discrimination.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She looks every bit of 48. Meth is no joke.

  • 2brefrank

    Oh, Lindsay.....

  • SummerBaby

    I wasn't sure if it was her being new to it or wearing a hijab wasn't really a big deal.....so it made it easier for her to remove it.

  • stav

    This chick is really thirsty , anything to get some media. The bottom line is those muslims from countries where islam is prominent , they have brown skin and their ethnicities are obvious. She is a white girl and will be fine, she needs to stop seeking out publicity for herself, because if the ish really hits the fan I wonder how quickly she would denounce Islam. If she is real with it , there is no need to make everything public, stop looking for attention, and do you.

  • Pebbles

    She is new & she doesn't know

  • Chardonnai

    shes waaaaaaayyyy too old for that. Plus her face looks meth induced.

  • MsSincerity

    Are you from Chicago?

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    According to her own family, she didn't convert to Islam, so...

  • stav

    Last I heard she said she was studying it, (whenever she isn't high as a kite). She really isn't credible, so I believe nothing this has been attention seeker says.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    So true.
    Nicole Murphy is 49 and looks younger than her.

  • ViolettaBliss

    White privilege at it's finest!!

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    That's great. Though most efforts must begin through grassroots, we must find the bigger scope and build upon it.

  • Evilpeoplearetheweakest

    the picture lmao

  • SpiceGirl

    attention anyone???

  • starbright9449

    These comments... So hateful....

  • Imma?????

    Why would you use SKELETORE (Nicole Murphy) as an example? On her BEST day she looks her age and for sure on her BAD day she looks every bit of granny*ish..... Sanaa Lathan, Brandy....They look good for their age....But hold the Nicole Murphy comparison..

  • i troll it like i see it

    I was at the airport and asked a Muslim woman to wrap my scarf around my head like I was wearing a hijab because I wanted to see how I would be treated. She warned me, said id be effed with and she was right. They profiled the ish out of me at security.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I recently got my starter locks so I decided to go on youtube to watch a few videos about it. Chile I put in starter dreads and nothing but white folks popped up lol.

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    As if being black ain't enough....boy oh boy let a white person walk around in blackface ..."just to see what it's like" the backlash would be horrendous.

  • VeyoncèSupreme

    Lies you tell!!!!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    RACIALLY profiled?

    She took it off IN PUBLIC? I was under the impression TSA couldn't ask them to remove a hijab, much like not asking someone to remove it for the purpose of taking an ID due to religious beliefs.

    I still surprised she took it off.

    Someone help me out here.

  • LibraGirlonly

    This is one thirsty byeoch!!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I'll stand with you. ?...?

  • LibraGirlonly

    Nicole looks amazing and her body can rival any 20 yr old.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Is he dripping? My screen is dirty.
    Ahhh. This brings back the days of acne and greasy pillowcases.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    That's what I thought. Now, I have to look at her like I did when she blamed her chocolate friend for driving the car. Mnnnn.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    They are supposed to take them into a room and have a female staff person check them.

    As far as I can tell the only people making a deal about this is MTO I don't think Lindsay Lohans trying to capitalize off the situation and I think she's just telling her side of the story

  • AG

    Racially profiled?

  • Deblicious

    She looks old!!!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I am so HYPED!!

  • Tlowe89

    So once they realized she was a white woman and famous they asked the white woman to take off her costume.... how was she racially profiled again....She herself pretty much said she wore it out of respect because she was in a country where woman where hI jab, so how can show feel offended when she doesn't wear it on a daily basis and to my knowledge isn't a devout muslin woman. Heck does she feel racially profiled if they ask her to take her shoes off. Smh, she's such a bad media whore.

  • Blak

    racially profiled? Bitch please have several seats with your victim reaching

  • Buttercupdreamsmom

    Ooooohhh kkaaaayyyy black ppl are....never mind lol

  • Luvn_it

    Ok I'm going to start off by saying Good Afternoon?. Now to this (I don't even know what to call it) Islam is not a race therefore she was not racially profiled. And as much as she's in the news hijab or not I don't think anyone would've had a problem recognizing her face. Seems like she's trying to use this incident for publicity. I could be wrong.

  • sherri2016

    As much as I can't stand Trump I'm glad other people are getting to feel what its like for black people on a daily basis

  • Liah
