Lindsay Lohan, who has made headlines in tabloids for her exploration of the Muslim faith, said Tuesday she was "racially profiled" for wearing a headscarf in London's Heathrow Airport.
Lohan said customs officials saw her passport and apologized but told her to take off the scarf, she said on "Good Morning Britain."
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.
Lohan said she complied, but wondered if other women who wore headscarves out of religious convictions would feel the same.
Speculation into Lohan's faith spiked after she was photographed carrying a Quran. She said she had worn it while visiting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan out of "personal respect." As this photo shows, she didn't always wear it.
A representative for the airport told the Daily Mail: "Heathrow respects the cultural and religious needs of all passengers traveling through the airport."
During the interview, Lohan also said she was interested in making a "Mean Girls" sequel. Last weekend, she said she also wanted to star in a hypothetical live-action remake of "The Little Mermaid," CNN reports.
As some observers noted sarcastically, Islam is not a race.
