Ari Lennox is letting her followers know that she’s been arrested in Amsterdam over what she says is a profiling incident.
Reuters reports that at the Amsterdam Schiphol airport on Monday, the Dutch military police responded to a disturbing public order from the R&B singer after she had accused airline staff of racial discrimination.
The singer tweeted Monday, “F— Amsterdam security. They hate black people.”
She added, “I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me,” in a series of tweets.

Dutch military police, who are responsible for security at Schiphol airport, said Lennox was held because of her aggressive behavior towards an airline official, and for being drunk in public, per the outlet.
“Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down,” spokesman Robert van Kapel said. “That’s why she had to be taken into custody.”
The outlet says that it is unclear how long the singer would be held in custody as the investigation of the incident is ongoing.
