Own Correspondent|Legendary Musician Diana Ross is fuming after airport authorities violated her during a routine airport screening process.
Ross said on Twitter that she felt ‘violated’ by an airport screener who touched her between her legs after she performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival over the weekend.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, the Motown legend said she blames the Transportation Security Administration for a screening at the New Orleans airport that makes her want to cry.
‘OK so on one hand I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport I was treated like sh*t,’ the songstress tweeted.
‘Let me be clear, Not the peiple [sic] or Delta BUT TSA, was over the top !! Makes me want to cry !!!’ she added.
It is not clear if Ross reported the incident to TSA.
A TSA spokesperson responded to the incident on their website saying they were aware of Ross’ screening experience at the New Orleans airport this morning. The spokesperson also said an initial review of the surveillance footage “indicates that the officers involved with Ms. Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols, however, TSA will continue to investigate the matter further.”
