Lind­say: My head­scarf race or­deal

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LIND­SAY Lohan has claimed she was “racially pro­filed” while wear­ing a head­scarf at a Lon­don air­port.

The actress, 30, said she was in­tim­i­dated by the in­ci­dent as she was pre­par­ing to fly from Heathrow to New York re­cently.

Lind­say ( above), who also re­vealed that she is “con­sid­er­ing” con­vert­ing to Is­lam, told Good Morn­ing Britain she re­moved the head­scarf and se­cu­rity of­fi­cials apol­o­gised af­ter re­al­is­ing who she was.

She said she was “scared” for other women who may not feel com­fort­able re­mov­ing sim­i­lar head­wear.

The Mean Girls star told the ITV break­fast pro­gramme: “I was wear­ing a head­scarf and I got stopped at the air­port and racially pro­filed ... the first time in my life.

“She said, ‘Please take off your head­scarf’. I did, I mean it’s okay. But what scared me was how would an­other woman who doesn’t feel com­fort­able tak­ing off her head­scarf feel?” IN a game of football in 1280, a player was killed af­ter run­ning into an­other player’s dag­ger.
