Twenty minutes later she followed up with a second Tweet, sharing, “They’re arresting me,” and “I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me.”

A follower of Lennox captured various, now deleted Tweets sent out by the singer. It appears that the incident started with the Dutch airline service, KLM.

She wrote, “F*** Amsterdam f*** klm. Never in my life,” and “Racism. Wow Amsterdam I’m horrified. I was so happy to travel and this evil woman…I’ve never experienced racism so blatant.”

Lennox added, “I just want to go home. I’ll never leave my house again.”

The incident in Amsterdam took place a week after Ari’s performance at the Soul Train Awards, where she and Summer Walker shared the stage and performed her latest single, “Pressure.” The performance aired Saturday night.

As of now, there are no further details about Lennox’s incident in Amsterdam with airport security.
