Ari Lennox Says She Has Been Arrested In Amsterdam Over Racial Profiling Incident | Essence |

R&B/soul singer Ari Lennox took to Twitter Monday to share that she is being arrested in Amsterdam over a racial profiling incident.

It appears that shortly after she arrived in the Amsterdam, Netherlands airport, the Dreamville artist was profiled by airport security. At 4:16 ET, she tweeted "F-- Amsterdam security. They hate black people." Twenty minutes later she tweeted, "They're arresting me," and "I'm being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me."

A Twitter user captured additional tweets that seem to be deleted, suggesting the profiling stemmed from an incident with KLM, a Netherlands-based airline.
