Lindsay Lohan (C) speaks to press with wearing a headscarf given by a Syrian woman, after her visit at a container town where Syrian refugees live in the Nizip district of Gaziantep in Turkey on October 08, 2016.

*Lindsay Lohan says she was the victim of racial profiling during a trip from Turkey to the U.S.

In a “Good Morning Britain” interview Tuesday, the actress claimed that an airport worker stopped her in London’s Heathrow Airport because she was wearing a headscarf.

“When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing [a] headscarf and I got stopped at the airport and racially profiled for the first time in my life,” she said.

Lohan claimed the airport worker “opened my passport and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing, but then said: ‘Please take off your headscarf.’”

Lohan, who admits she can’t speak as to why she was stopped, followed instructions and removed the headscarf.

But what scared me was in that moment, how would another woman who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?” she said.

“I got double checked until she realized,” Lohan recalled, adding that it had never happened to her before.

Lohan says she wore the headscarf in Turkey out of “personal respect” for the country she was in, and continued to wear it on her way to New York.

The story follows months of speculation that Lohan has been in the process of converting to Islam. While she said in the interview she doesn’t want to confirm it while she’s still learning, she has been photographed reading the Quran and says it gives her “solace.”
