Diana Ross says that she was treated like a queen while spending time in New Orleans recently. But when she got to the airport, it was a totally different story.

Ms. Ross performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Saturday (May 4). She went through nine costume changes as she thrilled the crowd, performing an 80-minute setlist featuring a slew of hits dating back to 1964.

“I love New Orleans it was an incredible night at the jazz fest,” she tweeted afterward.

Then she got to the airport and everything went to hell.

Apparently, a TSA officer was a bit too handsy while searching Ms. Ross, who complained via Twitter that it felt more like she was being “violated” rather than being routinely searched.

The legendary performer tweeted: “OK so on one hand I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport I was treated like sh*t.”

She explained that she didn’t have a problem with the actual airport or the airline she used (Delta), saying it was the TSA agents who were “over the top” and made her “want to cry.”

Ms. Ross added: “[It’s] not what was done but how … I am feeling violated – I still feel her hands between my legs, front and back (saying to me [it’s] her job) WOW!! Really mixed emotions … I always like to see the good things but not feeling good right now.”

Ross’ fans on Twitter were far from pleased about her bad experience at the airport in New Orleans.

“Whoever is treating Ms. Ross like this in 2019 can pull up,” one user said in response to Ross’ tweet airing out her grievances.

“Ms. Ross, please have your lawyers contact TSA…their leadership needs to answer why their employees were so inappropriate with you,” said another.

Another fan suggested in the future she charter a private plane and fly through New Orleans Lakefront Airport, where she’ll get the “royal treatment” she deserves.
