On Monday, Ari Lennox was detained in Amsterdam for disturbing the peace.

The R&B artist accused airline personnel of racial prejudice, according to Dutch military police who manage security at Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

“They’re arresting me,” tweeted Lennox. “I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me.”

Lennox continued to tweet about her experience. “F**k Amsterdam security. They hate black people,” she wrote.

Dutch military police tell Reuters that Lennox was taken into custody because of her aggressive behavior towards an airline official, and for being drunk in public.

“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.”

In a since-deleted tweet, Lennox shared a photo of the woman was allegedly profiled her.

“Racism. Wow Amsterdam I’m horrified. I was so happy to travel and this evil woman… I’ve never experienced racism so blatant,” she said.

 

Police are looking into allegations that Lennox made threats during the encounter. It’s uncertain how long she’ll be detained for.

“I just want to go home. I’ll never leave my house again,” she told her followers.
