Lindsay Lohan has opened up about an incident that took place at London Heathrow airport recently while she was attempting to fly to New York.
The actress was wearing a headscarf, and apparently felt “intimidated” when she was asked to remove it while going through security…
“I was flying to New York recently,” she said on Good Morning Britain. “I was wearing a headscarf and I got stopped and racially profiled for the first time in my life.
“She opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologising 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 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 strange. It did freak me out. I’m from New York, born and raised. I was a little intimidated.”
If your next question is “why was she actually wearing a headscarf?” then we’re afraid we don’t really have the answers for you.
It was thought that Lindsay Lohan had converted to Islam a few months ago, but she has since addressed those rumours and stated that she simply finds “solace” in reading The Koran.
“I find a solace in studying, not just the Koran, other religions”
She also mentioned that she wants to find out more about Islam and learn the language, so she can better communicate with children in Syria when she works with them…
“I find a solace in studying, not just the Koran, other religions,” she added on Good Morning Britain.
“It’s something that feeds my soul, and learning different cultures and beliefs, and through the Islamic culture I’ve found a lot of people, I feel like it’s a family to me.
“Also working with kids in Syria, it’s something I want to learn the language so I can discuss situations with them.”
We think learning another language, especially for a reason like that, is a great idea!
