Ari Lennox recently shutdown the 2021 BET Soul Train Awards show with live performances of her songs “Pressure” and “Unloyal” featuring Summer Walker. While her award-show weekend ended on a good note, her Thanksgiving break did not. Unfortunately, not everyone had a great holiday. Furthermore, the Monday after Thanksgiving, an Amsterdam airport security team detained the R&B singer. Since her arrest, Ari Lennon has accused the security team of “racially profiling” her.
The Amsterdam Security Arrested Ari Lennox For “Disorderly Conduct”
On Monday, November 29 the security at the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport arrested Ari Lennox for supposed “disorderly conduct.” According to the Dutch military police, Lennox exhibited “aggressive behavior” toward an airline official. Additionally, the officials supposedly found Ari Lennox highly intoxicated at the time. In a statement released by one of the police officials, they further detailed Lennox’s very “emotional” state of mind, which somehow lead to her arrest.
The “Pressure” Singer Accuses The Police Of “Racially Profiling” Her
Arguably, the security team at the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport had a hard time settling on an explanation for Lennox’s arrest. Though, the singer herself made it a point to speak out against the security team. In a series of tweets, Lennox accused the police of “racially profiling” her. “Wow. They’re arresting me . . . I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me.” In other words, Lennox experienced police brutality at the Amsterdam airport. Unfortunately, the singer remains behind bars whilst the police investigate the “threats” Lennox made to the security team.
