No. 1. Lindsay Lohan Claims She Was ‘Racially Profiled’ Over Headscarf in Airport
Lindsay Lohan has claimed she was “racially profiled” at Heathrow airport while catching a flight to New York, because she was wearing a headscarf.
She told Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, “[British Airport Security] opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing, but then said ‘please take off your headscarf.’ And I did, it’s okay.” (She says she was wearing a headscarf “out of personal respect” for Turkish culture.)
However, the incident forced Lohan to consider how she benefited from her privilege as both a celebrity and non-Muslim: “What scared me in that moment [is] how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock. It was jarring.” As for her religion, Lohan said it wouldn’t be right to talk about converting until she’s finished studying the Koran, but that “it’s a consideration.”
