Detroit native Diana Ross, the former Supreme who helped put Motown on the map, says she felt “violated” by an airport screener who touched her between her legs after she performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, the 75-year-old blamed the Transportation Security Administration for an “over the top!!” screening at the New Orleans airport, the New Orleans Advance reports.
TSA spokesman Mark Howell said in a statement to the Associated Press that the agency is still investigating, but an initial review of video of the screening indicates that officers correctly followed all protocols.
