Diana Ross claims she was "treated like shit" by the TSA at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport following her performance at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on Saturday.
Ross says the encounter with the female TSA agent left her "feeling violated." She proceeded to describe certain aspects of the patdown that made her feel this way.
In a statement to People, a TSA spokesman asserts that the agent "correctly followed all protocols" after reviewing CCTV footage of the incident. "Initial review of CCTV indicates that the officers involved with Ms. Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols, however, TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further," the statement reads. "We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns."
In light of the alleged incident, Ross says she is now "feeling better" in a tweet accompanied by a clip from her performance of "Stop! In the Name of Love" by The Supremes at the festival.
