Lindsay Lohan Said She Was Profiled For Wearing A Headscarf At The Airport

“How would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?”

Out of all the people effected by Donald Trump's Muslim Ban, perhaps Lindsay Lohan is the most surprising. According to USA Today, the spiritual starlet was stopped at London's Heathrow Airport — most likely because she was wearing a headscarf.

Lindsay was apparently questioned by immigration officers on her way back to New York. As soon as the official conducting the investigation noticed her name, she was apologized to and asked to remove the scarf and proceed.

“How would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?” wondered LiLo on Good Morning Britain.

Good question: as immigration officers scramble to figure out new procedures regarding the USA's new immigration rules, many Muslims are finding their treatment to be less than humane.

While rumors about Lindsay's conversion to Islam remain largely unconfirmed, the actress says she continues to wear a headscarf in Turkey out of “personal respect" and reads the Quran in order to find "solace."

Here's what Lohan had to say about the situation:

If someone as famous as Lindsay can be profiled for wearing a headscarf, just imagine the nastiness that regular, not-famous Muslims must have to put up with.
