Music legend Diana Ross says TSA made her want to cry at the New Orleans airport.

Ross says that she felt “violated” by the way a female TSA agent intimately patted her down at the security checkpoint.

Ross apparently flew out of New Orleans via Delta early Sunday morning.

Diana followed the complaint by sharing a video of her singing The Supremes’ “Stop! In the Name of Love” at the festival.

According to Nola.com, TSA released this statement Sunday.

“TSA is committed to ensuring all travelers are treated with respect and courtesy. TSA is aware of concerns presented by Diana Ross about her screening experience at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this morning.”

“Initial review of CCTV indicates that the officers involved with Ms. Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols, however, TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns.”
