Last year, Lennox opened up about an incident in Amsterdam which saw her arrested. The musician claimed it was over her reaction to an incident of racial profiling, calling the experience “painful” and saying she’s “not OK”.
Lennox shared on social media that she was arrested at Amsterdam airport last November. Reuters later reported that Dutch military police arrested Lennox for disturbing public order, after she allegedly accused KLM Royal Dutch Airlines staff of racial discrimination.
“I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me,” Lennox wrote on Twitter at the time, before saying: “Fuck Amsterdam security. They hate black people.”
On November 30, Lennox’s manager, Justin LaMotte, said that the singer was safe and appreciative of the support she was receiving.
Lennox later opened up about the experience, thanking her fans for their “prayers and love”. She then went on to say that her “only regret” was her “reaction to the racism and discrimination [she] experienced.”
In a statement following the incident, a KLM spokesperson told The Guardian, “There was an altercation … about seeing her identification.
“The lady did not show the correct document. When the employee confronted her, she drew the wrong conclusions.”
The spokesperson also said that Lennox’s management apologised to the airline on her behalf.
