Diana Ross, seen here performing at the Grammys, lashed out after she felt “violated” by the TSA.
The “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” singer tweeted Sunday morning that she was treated “like royalty” in the Louisiana city, where she performed at Jazz and Heritage Festival this weekend, but that her airport experience was traumatic.
Ross, 75, clarified that it wasn’t Delta Airlines or their staff, but the TSA specifically that upset her, alleging that her agent “was over the top” and made her “want to cry.”
“It’s not what was done but how,” she wrote. “I am feeling violated — I still feel her hands between my legs, front and back (saying to me ‘it [is] her job’).”
“Really mixed emotions,” she added. “I always like to see the good things but not feeling good right now.”
Ross tweeted several hours later that she was feeling better.
A TSA spokesperson did not return Fox News’ request for comment, but told the New Orleans Advocate Sunday, “TSA is committed to ensuring all travelers are treated with respect and courtesy. TSA is aware of concerns presented by Diana Ross about her screening experience at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this morning.”
The statement added that a review of CCTV footage of the incident “indicates that the officers involved with Ms. Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols, however, TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns.”
NOLA.com reports that during Ross’ performance on Saturday night, the Motown legend had a whopping nine costume changes.
A rep for Delta Airlines did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
